Postdoctoral position in "Strongly correlated systems by Advanced quantum Monte Carlo methods"
A postdoctoral position at SISSA is available in the group of Prof. Sandro Sorella (http://people.sissa.it/~sorella/), starting date June-July 2022, awarded by the Simon's collaboration on the many electron problem (https://www.simonsfoundation.org).
The main purpose of this project is to understand, by novel approaches based on quantum Monte Carlo, the still highly debated phase diagran of strongly correlated systems, such as, for instance, the Hubbard model and its extensions relevant for High-Temperature superconductors.
The interested applicant should have a strong motivation to discover new effects that may be driven by strong electron correlation and that cannot be detected by standard mean field techniques.
The candidate should also have excellent skills in developing codes and algorithms.
The position is for two years.
The net salary is competitive within italian and european standards with extra funds available for traveling and collaborating with the many partners involved in this project.
