Research Associate, Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics, Rutgers University

Research Associate position in the Center for Computational Design of Functional Strongly Correlated Materials, directed by Professors Kristjan Haule and Gabriel Kotliar, is available at Rutgers University. The major goal of the center is to develop better tools and methods for material design of functional correlated materials based on Dynamical Mean Field Theory, and to couple the theoretical algorithms with experimental efforts, resulting in next the generation of theoretical spectroscopic tools. Successful candidates will join a dynamic CMT group at Rutgers, and will be part of the Simons collaboration on the many electron problem, which is developing new ways to solve the quantum mechanical behavior of systems comprised of many interacting electrons, with the goal of revolutionizing our ability to calculate and understand the properties of solids important in chemistry, physics and everyday life.

Strong previous experience in developing complex algorithms and their implementation is essential.
