Post-doctoral Fellow in Computational and Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics
Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow(s) in Computational and Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics.
The appointee will work with Dr. Zi Yang Meng to conduct research on computational and theoretical condensed matter physics. Areas of research include diagrammatic calculations, quantum Monte Carlo methods, density matrix renormalization group and tensor network states, and artificial intelligence and neural networks, with a particular focus on applying these numerical approaches to quantum many-body systems, such as correlated 2D materials, quantum Moire systems, frustrated magnets, topological order, quantum phase transitions beyond Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson paradigms, etc. The recent works of Dr. Meng and the group can be found at https://quantummc.xyz/publication.
PhD candidates at HKU are fulled-funded with one of the following fellowships.
- Regular package: Postgraduate Scholarships (PGS)
- Government-Funded fellowship: Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS)
- HKU-Funded fellowship: HKU Presidential PhD Scholar Programme (HKU-PS Programme)
