Position Title: Post Doctoral Fellow - Physics and Astronomy

Department: College: College of Science

Location: Kinard 212, Clemson, SC

Open Date: Apr 13, 2023


Prof. Yao Wang's group invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow position at Clemson University, Department of Physics and Astronomy. This position comes with a competitive salary, university benefits, and travel funds for conferences. Postdocs will have the opportunity to co-instruct a course, and will also benefit from collaborations with experimental groups at multiple universities and national laboratories.

The research of the Wang group lies in elucidating quantum many-body systems using state-of-the-art computational techniques. We are particularly interested in bridging the experimental observations with theoretical models. Our interest also extends to the connection with analog quantum simulations and quantum algorithms.
