Several postdoc positions are available immediately at the division of Simulation of Physical Systems in the Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC), involving investigation in condensed matter and computational physics, with emphasis on solving many-body problems with the state-of-the-art approaches. Currently the division is carrying out the following research: magnetism, superconductivity and novel spin-related phenomena in new materials such as graphene and topological insulators; electron spins in semiconductor quantum dots; theory of spin decoherence in the solid state; realistic description of spin-orbit coupling and its effects in semiconductor nano-structures; stain tunable electronic and phonon properties of low dimensional materials; transport via atomistic molecular dynamics; frustrated quantum magnetism; exotic quantum phase transition; out-of-equilibrium quantum physics; Many-body localization and thermalization; High-Temperature Superconductivity; among others.
Candidates who have a background in condensed matter theory, and/or are familiar with numerical techniques as matrix product states, density matrix renormalization group, tensor networks, quantum Monte Carlo methods, large scale exact diagonalizations, and molecular dynamics, are welcome to apply. Interested postdocs will work primarily with Profs. Hai-Qing Lin, Wen Yang, Dong-Bo Zhang, Stefano Chesi, Ling Wang and Rubem Mondaini depending on the topic of research. A broad collaboration/discussion within the Center with the other professors of the division is strongly encouraged. The postdoc will also have a chance to collaborate with oversea Institutes and Universities. The offer contract lasts for two years, extensible for a third year depending on mutual agreement. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
The candidate should also arrange two letters of recommendation, CV, and research statement to be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Screening of applicants will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Candidates who are interested in having an in-person interview can contact the division members to set up an appointment during the 2018 APS March Meeting.
