Postdoctoral Fellow - Computational Quantum Many-Body Physics

Job description

Clemson University: College of Science: Physics & Astronomy
Postdoctoral Fellow - Computational Quantum Many-Body Physics

Location: Clemson, SC

Dr. Yao Wang's group at Clemson University is actively seeking a enthusiastic postdoc researcher.

The project will be focused on one/some of the following topics: (1) numerical simulation of strongly correlated systems, including the dynamical and excited-state properties; (2) hybrid quantum-classical algorithm development for many-body systems; (3) wavefunction-based method development for quantum materials and especially those with strong electron-phonon coupling. The project also involves close collaborations with leading experimental teams.

This position comes with a competitive salary, the benefits, and travel funds for conferences and collaborations. The initial position is for two years and can be extended to the third year upon positive performance evaluations and continued funding.

About Dr. Wang:

Prof. Wang's research interests lie in the theoretical elucidation of quantum many-body problems and their consequences in experimental measurements. These problems have rich applications in novel materials, ultrafast dynamics, quantum simulation, and quantum computing. Details about the group can be found in the group website Prof. Wang obtained his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics, with a minor in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, from Stanford University. Before joining Clemson as an assistant professor, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Physics Department of Harvard University.


Candidates with a background on computational physics or quantum chemistry are strongly encouraged to apply. Skills in numerical method development and massively parallel computing are preferred.


Interested candidates are required to apply at Please upload a CV that includes a full publication list and three references' contact information. For full consideration, please apply by October 15, 2020.

Please contact Prof. Yao Wang ([email protected]) if you have any questions.
