Our group is currently particularly interested in the following areas

-- holographic entanglement and bulk reconstruction (including topics in tensor networks and error correcting codes ).

-- topological orders (both their field theoretic and lattice descriptions, classifications, entanglement, and bulk-boundary correspondence)

Applicants with diverse interests and backgrounds, including GR, QFT, quantum information, topological orders, tensor networks are all very welcomed to apply. Our package includes generous grant money for travelling and inviting visitors, in addition to opportunities to hosting workshops on topics of interest to the group. Salary starts at 200k RMB/year. Exceptional candidates would be considered for special fellowships/super-postdoc positions in the university that top up the annual pay to 400k RMB.
