Categories: Academic-related Staff
Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in Condensed Matter Theory in the Department of Physics (Ref.: 503422) to commence as soon as possible for two years, with the possibility of renewal subject to funding availability and satisfactory performance.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics. Those who are in the process of completing a Ph.D. degree will also be considered. Applicants with experience in numerical studies of strongly correlated systems, such as DMRG and QMC are also welcome to apply. The appointee will work with Dr. Gang Chen to pursue research in quantum matter theory. Dr. Chen’s research interests cover a wide range of topics in strongly correlated condensed matter physics, including, but not limited to, frustrated magnetism, non-Fermi liquid, spin liquid, Kondo physics, topological orders and phases, spintronics, ultra cold atoms, non-linear optics, thermal transports, quantum hall effects, fermion sign problem for numerics, and composite systems with multi-flavor degrees of freedom. For more information about Dr. Chen’s research group, please visit https://gangchengroup-physics.weebly.com/. A list of publications of Dr. Chen’s theory group which covers part of Dr. Chen’s research interests can be found at https://arxiv.org/a/chen_g_4.html.
A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits. At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income.
The University only accepts online application for the above post. Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V., a cover letter, a list of publications. They should also arrange 3 referees to send reference letters to Dr. Chen by email (email@example.com) directly. Review of applications will commence as soon as possible and continue until April 15, 2021, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
