The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Sciences (KITS) in Beijing sincerely invites applicants for the KITS postdoc fellow positions in condensed matter and cold atom theory. The successful candidate will chiefly work with Prof. Biao Huang with flexible starting date in 2022 upon mutual agreement. Main topics of research involve non-equilibrium and topological theories, including Floquet topological matters, dynamics and thermalization of strongly driven and/or interacting systems, localization, and their applications in the platforms of ultracold quantum gases. More information can be found at []. Postdoc at KITS will also enjoy the freedom to choose research topic of their own interests, and we encourage interacting/collaborations with all faculty member at KITS across condensed matter and high energy physics [].

The appointment is for two years, extendable for an additional year.
