Applications are invited for appointment as Postdoctoral Fellow in Condensed Matter Theory in the Department of Physics (Ref.: 494128), 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. Research experience in strongly correlated systems and topological phases of matter is strongly desirable. Applicants who are in the process of completing a Ph.D. degree will also be considered. The appointee will work with Dr. Chenjie Wang to pursue research in topological phases and other strongly correlated condensed matter systems. The recent works of Dr. Wang can be found at https://arxiv.org/a/wang_c_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.
