Job Description: Summary of Duties and Responsibilities: The candidate will conduct research at the interface of condensed matter theory and quantum information science, as part of a research team led by Thomas Iadecola and Peter P. Orth. Potential research directions include the development of quantum computing algorithms for non-equilibrium dynamics in strongly correlated models with possible applications in many-body localization and non-linear response of quantum materials. This position is (partially) funded by a recent NSF grant “Variational Quantum Algorithms for Nonequilibrium Quantum Many-Body Systems”. The successful candidate will have excellent verbal and written communication skills, and will be able to communicate effectively to a wide variety of audiences. The individual must be able to work effectively with team members.

This position is for one year with the possibility to extend for a second year upon mutual agreement.
