Appl Deadline: (posted 2019/02/26, listed until 2019/12/26)
Position Description:    

There are postdoctoral positions in condensed matter theory opening in the group of Asst. Prof. Justin Song and 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);

• Van der Waals heterostructures (including strongly correlated and topological phases);

• Transport/mesoscopics and opto-electronics of quantum materials (such as 2D Dirac materials and 3D Dirac/Weyl semimetals);

• Quantum dynamics in non-equilibrium systems;

• Quantum numerical simulations (e.g. large scale exact diagonalization, density matrix renormalization group, classical and quantum Monte-Carlo);

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 or Justin Song (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 at: [at] ntu [dot] edu [dot] sg

About Singapore:

Singapore is a young and dynamic city in tropical South-East Asia that has a very international outlook, and is actively encouraging an innovative research atmosphere. It has a particularly vibrant effort in two-dimensional materials providing an excellent environment for exciting interactions (both experimental and theoretical). The official working language in the department and institute is English; it is also the predominant language spoken throughout the city.
