Senior Scientist
There is a postdoctoral position in condensed matter theory opening in the group of Asst. Prof. Yang Bo in Singapore at the Department of Physics, Nanyang Technological University. Applications are invited with areas of interest that include (but are not limited to):
• Topological phases of matter;
• Strongly correlated systems (e.g. fractional quantum Hall effect, fractional Chern insulators and other flatband/heavy fermion systems);
• Quantum numerical simulations (e.g. large scale exact diagonalization, density matrix renormalization group, classical and quantum Monte-Carlo);
• Classical many-body systems (e.g. complex systems, critical and emergent behaviour);
• Neural networks and modern machine learning.
Candidates should have a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics or closely related fields, be highly motivated, and have a strong background in analytical and/or numerical methods. Active engagement with experimental groups is encouraged. The position is for 2 years to start as soon as possible. There is a possibility of extension for a third year.
Candidates are invited to submit an application with a CV, a list of publications, and a short statement of research interests directly to Yang Bo (see below for email address). Letters of recommendations will be solicited at a later date.
For more information (and to submit your CVs), please contact Yang Bo directly at [at] ntu [dot] edu [dot] sg
