The position supports two years of funding, with the possibility of extension to a third year upon mutual agreement. The appointment includes a competitive salary and benefits, and research/travel funds.

The successful candidate should finish his/her PhD study before the starting of the position. Recent research interest of Yahui Zhang (see is on strongly correlated physics such as moire systems, high Tc superconductor, spin liquids, non-Fermi liquids, quantum information, etc. Both analytical and numerical techniques are employed in the research. Research experience in either numerical simulation (ED, DMRG, variational monte carlo, determinant monte carlo, etc) or analytical study (parton theory, quantum field theory, renormalization group etc) is a plus, but not required for the position.
