Division of Physics and Applied Physics, Nanyang Technological University

There are multiple postdoctoral positions available in Condensed Matter Theory at the Department of Physics, Nanyang Technological University. Applications are invited with areas of interest that include (but are not limited to):

1. Topological phases of matter;

2. Strongly correlated systems (e.g. fractional quantum Hall effect, fractional Chern insulators and other flatband/heavy fermion systems);

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

4. Classical many-body systems (e.g. complex systems, critical and emergent behaviour);
 Neural networks and modern machine learning.

5. Quantum magnetism in low-dimensions

6. Frustrated magnetism

7. Topological magnons in 2D quantum magnets

8. Unconventional magnetism and magneto-transport in metallic magnets

9. Spin-Peierls transition in higher spins (S>1/2) in one and two dimensions

Candidates should have a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics or applied mathematics 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(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 Prof. Pinaki Sengupta or Prof. Yang Bo directly at

Interested undergraduate students are also welcome to apply for Ph.D programs. Details for graduate school applications can be found here:

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.
