Research Scientist, indefinite-term employment, RIKEN (20W59)
Seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher, in First-Principles Materials Science Research Team, RIKEN CEMS
Research Field and Overview
Based on first-principles methods, our team studies non-trivial electronic properties of materials. Especially, we aim at predicting unexpected phenomena in strongly correlated and/or topological materials and establishing new guiding principles for materials design. We are also interested in the development of new methods for ab initio electronic structure calculation.
Research Scientist: 1 position
Theoretical study on strongly-correlated systems from first principles. Developments in numerical methods combining first-principles calculations, quantum many-body theory, and machine learning to describe many-body effects accurately. Exploration of functional strongly-correlated materials through quantitative simulations using the developed methods. The successful candidate is expected to conduct research and development on topics specified above and to contribute to the management of the laboratory.
