We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a background in correlated electron systems and/or ab-initio simulations, to work on a project related to nonequilibrium physics of correlated materials. To be more specific, we will theoretically study the high harmonic generation (HHG) and related nonequilibrium phenomena to explore and understand interplay between condensed matters and strong electric fields. We are also planing to have a close collaboration with experimentalists in Kyoto University and Tokyo Metropolitan University. The specific research plan will be discussed with the candidate and, besides HHG, the research topic could also include the following directions:

・ Application of time-dependent many-body techniques (DMFT, GW) to realistic materials ・ Photo-induced phase transitions in strongly correlated systems (Mott insulators, excitonic insulators, etc. ) ・ Development of numerical tools for nonequilibrium field theory (Keldysh formalism) as a part of the open-source project NESSi

The project requires a good understanding of theoretical condensed matter physics, enough coding skill and an interest in nonequilibrium physics (experience is not required). The work location shall be Tokyo in Japan.
