Come to work at CERN

At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

Beijing Computational Science Research Center, China in collaboration with Department of Physics, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

A two-year postdoctoral fellowship in condensed matter theory, promoted by the Beijing Computational Science Research Center in collaboration with the Department of Physics at the University of Gothenburg, is available from September 2018 (beginning date is negotiable).

The position will be part of a research activity aiming at the development of nonperturbative approaches to explore topological phases of low-dimensional quantum matter, with focus on nonequilibrium and interacting systems. Concepts and methods currently exploited range from density matrix renormalization group techniques and effective quantum field theories to tools borrowed from quantum information theory.

The project is a joint effort between Prof. Hai-Qing Lin's research group at the Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) and the group of Prof. Henrik Johannesson at the Department of Physics, University of Gothenburg. The successful candidate is expected to spend one year in Beijing and one year in Gothenburg. The monthly stipend lies within the range €1700 – €3000, depending on experience and qualifications. The University of Gothenburg will provide for free accommodation in a guest researcher apartment during the stay in Gothenburg, and will also cover the cost for health insurance and social benefits in Sweden. Travel between Sweden and China, in addition to participation in 1-2 international conferences/year, will be fully covered by CSRC and the University of Gothenburg.

Research environment:
Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC), http://www.csrc.ac.cn, is a multi-disciplinary fundamental research organization under the auspices of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Physics. Established in 2009, CSRC positions itself as a center of excellence in computational science research addressing current and critical issues in multidisciplinary mixes of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Computational Sciences.
The Department of Physics at the University of Gothenburg has active research groups in the areas of atomic- and molecular physics, biological physics, complex systems, condensed matter physics, and spintronics. Research and teaching are carried out jointly with the physics, astronomy, and nanoscience departments at Chalmers University of Technology, within the Gothenburg Physics Centre, http://www.chalmers.se/en/centres/gpc/Pages/default.aspx

Application procedure:
Applicants should have obtained their Ph.D. after 2011. Applications, including a CV, a statement of qualifications and research interests, publication list, and names and e-mail addresses to three reference persons, should be sent to Henrik Johannesson, e-mail: henrik.johannesson@physics.gu.se

Applications must be received by April 30 2018.
