Job Summary

Job Summary: The successful candidate will be expected to work in close contact with project members on one of the following research themes:

a) Theory of strongly correlated electrons and/or quantum   spin systems. (Mott transition, quantum spin liquids and superconductivity, chiefly based on model Hamiltonians. )
b) Theoretical modeling of multiferroics.(Based mainly on first principle calculations.)
c) Nanoscale study based on statistical mechanics on
 1) critical behavior of systems with long-ranged interaction 
 2) dynamical properties of permanent magnets.
d) Quantum effects in topological phases of matter (Transport properties of topological insulators and Weyl/Dirac semimetals, symmetry-protected topological phases in quantum spin systems/cold atoms.)
