Position Description:    

Associate Research Scientist, Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ)

Applications are invited for an Associate Research Scientist position at CCQ in the field of Computational Theory of Correlated Materials. Applicants should have a strong background in the development and use of computational methods combining electronic structure and many-body approaches for explaining and predicting properties of materials with strong electronic correlations, and a strong research agenda in the field of quantum materials.

Directed by Antoine Georges and co-directed by Andrew Millis, theCenter for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ), located in New York city, is a leading international center for the study of equilibrium and non-equilibrium many-body quantum systems, with applications to condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry and related fields. The development of the concepts, algorithms and code libraries needed to advance the field is fundamental to the work of the center. Research projects currently pursued at CCQ cover a broad range of methods and interest.

CCQ currently comprises more than 45 research and software scientistsatcareer stages from recent Ph.D.s through senior scientists, as well as support staff, visiting scientists, and affiliated graduate students and interns.CCQ has vigorous visitor and workshop programs, strong interactions with scientists from neighboring institutions and is engaged in several national and international partnerships.

Associate Research Scientists at CCQ are researchers who develop theoretical concepts, algorithms and codes, and apply these to obtain new insights into the quantum-mechanical behavior of models, materials and molecules. They develop their own research programs and also work in collaboration with other CCQ scientists including postdoctoral fellows. Reporting to research scientists, and/or the director or co-director of CCQ as appropriate, these positions are based at theFlatiron Institute, a division of the Simons Foundation, in New York City.

Associate Research Scientists are typically appointed for an initial three-year period; the appointment may be renewed for up to another three years. Associate Research Scientists may be reviewed for promotion to a non term-limited position as a Research Scientist.

Review of applications will begin on or about Feb 1, 2024.

This position will be based, and have a principal office or workspace, at the foundation's offices in New York City.
