Professor Pablo I. Hurtado Fernández, from the Department of Electromagnetism and Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for an Athenea3i Research Fellowship in 2018 at this University. The information about the Fellowship conditions, how to apply, Eligibility Criteria, Selection Process, Evaluation Process, etc. is available in https://athenea3i.ugr.es/. Please note that applicants must comply with the Eligibility Criteria (https://athenea3i.ugr.es/?page_id=23).

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. It serves more than 60000 students per year, including many foreign students, as UGR is the leader host institution in the Erasmus program. UGR, featuring 3650 professors and more than 2000 auxiliary personnel, offers a total of 75 degrees through its 112 departments and 28 centers.

UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top 5/10 of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding. UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking (http://www.arwu.org/), and it is also well recognized for its web presence (http://www.4icu.org/top200/).

Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of H2020, both at partner and coordination. For the duration of the Seventh Framework Programme, the UGR has obtained a total of 66 projects, with total funding of 17.97 million euros, and for H2020, until 2015, more than 25 projects with total funding of more than 6 million euros. Our more than 3,000 researchers are grouped into 365 research groups covering all scientific fields and disciplines.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group

Our Research Group consists of 3 full professors and 4 professors, 2 senior researchers, 2 postdocs, 4 PhD students and several master and undergraduate students, all of them working at the University of Granada. The group’s webpage is: http://ergodic.ugr.es

Our work focus on the study of nonequilibrium collective phenomena in statistical mechanics and complex systems, and it is highly interdisciplinary, with contributions in fields as diverse as condensed matter, computational physics, nonlinear dynamics, quantum and mathematical physics, theoretical ecology, neuroscience, etc. This breadth of interests is reflected in our publication record. In particular, almost 500 research papers have been published in top-tier international journals by the research team members, among which we highlight the following:

  • Nature Communications: 1
  • Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA: 6
  • Physical Review Letters: 48
  • Physical Review E: 71
  • Physical Review B: 57
  • J. Statistical Physics: 26
  • J. Stat. Mech. : 10

Project description

Keywords: Nonequilibrium statistical physics, fluctuations and large deviations, macroscopic fluctuation theory, dynamic phase transitions, symmetries in fluctuations far from equilibrium, simulation of rare events, driven diffusive systems.
