[Job title and Job description]
Job title, available positions:
Postdoctoral Researcher, one position
iTHEMS is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical physics including condensed matter physics, particle physics and nuclear physics. In particular, the successful applicant is expected to help develop an adiabatic quantum computer (AQC) simulator using time-dependent density matrix renormalization group (DMRG). This project is part of a greater effort in the Berkeley area towards exploring the efficacy of adiabatic quantum computing supported jointly by RIKEN, UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley Lab, and the U.S. Department of Energy. In addition to developing the AQC simulator, the candidate will have the opportunity to pursue top-level research in collaboration with an interdisciplinary group of researchers across fields such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, life sciences, engineering computational sciences, information sciences, and social sciences at iTHEMS, and physics, mathematics and computational sciences at Berkeley. For further details, send an e-mail to the contact address below.
