OFFER DESCRIPTION

[Laboratory]
Computational Materials Science Research Team
RIKEN Center for Computational Science
(Laboratory head: Seiji Yunoki)

[Research Field]
RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS), led by Center Director Satoshi Matsuoka, is an international research center in high performance computing and computational science in Japan. Our objectives are to investigate “the Science of (high performance) computing, by computing, and for computing", to research and develop our technologies (R-CCS technology) and software (R-CCS software), which we consider our core competence, in order to produce world-leading scientific and engineering results for use in Japan as well as globally.

Also, R-CCS started operating Japan's national flagship supercomputer, the K computer, as a shared national facility to support a wide range of research activities in 2011. Following K's success, development work on its successor, Supercomputer Fugaku, was launched in April 2014.

One of our main focuses is to develop state-of-the-art numerical methods for simulating ground states as well as quantum dynamics of strongly correlated quantum systems. We are also interested in developing quantum algorithms for quantum many-body systems and quantum computing simulations using classical computers such as Supercomputer Fugaku, as a ground challenge of information science in quest of a new computing paradigm.

[Job title and Job description]
Job title:
Postdoctoral Researcher or Research Scientist: 1~2 positions

Job description:
Successful candidates are expected to work on one (or more than one) of the following projects in collaboration with other team members:

1.Development of numerical methods for strongly correlated quantum systems, such as quantum Monte Carlo methods, density matrix renormalization group methods, and tensor network methods, and application of these methods to study strongly correlated quantum systems,
2.Application of machine learning techniques to strongly correlated quantum systems,
3.Development of quantum algorithms for quantum many-body systems and demonstration of these algorithms using classical/quantum computers, and
4.Development of quantum computing simulations using classical computers such as Supercomputer Fugaku.
