Tensor networks are recognized as one of the most promising numerical tools to study quantum many body systems; representatives are the matrix product state (MPS), the multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA), and the projected entangled-pair states (PEPS), and Density Matrix Renormalization Group(DMRG). By now, the concept covers various fields including material science, quantum chemistry, and lattice gauge theories, and it is desired to share ideas among these fields.

In the theory group of Prof. Uwe R. Fischer at Seoul National University, there is an opening for a Postdoc position for one year, with a possible extension by another year. Possible research topics are novel quantum phases in optical lattices, dipolar gases with strong correlations, the many-body physics of fragmented condensates, dynamical quantum phase transitions, the Kibble-Zurek mechanism of topological defect creation, and quantum state transfer in hybrid quantum systems.

Please note the unusual starting time of 10pm UK time due to the speaker being in Australia.

We are currently offering postdoctoral positions and a PhD position to highly motivated and well-qualified young researchers who intend to enhance their career in the field of quantum information science, quantum many-body theory or quantum optics. The successful candidates will work in the research group for quantum information theory led by Prof. Jens Eisert at the University of Potsdam and the Institute for Advanced Study Berlin in the Berlin-Potsdam metropolitan area.
