A postdoctoral position is currently available in the Condensed Matter Theory Group led by Prof. Jun-Won Rhim at the Department of Physics, Ajou University, South Korea.
We are interested in a wide range of subjects of quantum condensed matter theory such as topological phases, flat band systems, strongly correlated electron systems, photonic crystals, and non-equilibrium phenomena. Recent research topics are focused on topological and geometric properties of flat band systems (Nature 584, 59, Phys. Rev. Lett. 124 183901). Still, applications having other interests will also be considered. The detailed descriptions of research interests can be found on our group website: http://sites.google.com/view/ajou-cmtg
The position will be initially for two years with a possibility of some extension. The salary would be 35000-55000(USD) per year according to qualifications.
The starting date of the position is flexible. Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in physics or closely related fields before the beginning of the position. To apply, please submit a CV, a cover letter online, and arrange for a recommendation letter to be sent directly to Prof. Jun-Won Rhim (email address: email@example.com ).
