    Qualifications

    PhD degree in physics (or expect to defend her/his PhD thesis in the next months), with a strong background in condensed matter or quantum many-body theory.

    Preference

    Preference will be given to candidates with experience in one of the following fields:

    • topological phases of matter
    • a strongly-correlated ultracold atom or electronic systems
    • quantum simulations of many-body models or tensor network simulations.
