28.07.2020

Applications should be emailed to norbert.schuch@univie.ac.at

Subject: "Postdoc Application", and contain a full academic CV, a brief summary of research interests, and the contact data of two referees. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.

Postdoc positions are available in the newly established group on Quantum Information and Quantum Many-Body Physics, led by Norbert Schuch, at the University of Vienna.

Topics of interest cover the whole range from quantum information and computation to quantum many-body physics, with a focus on tensor networks and related methods.

Possible topics include:
* Theory of Tensor Networks, classification of phases
* Simulation methods for quantum many-body systems,
   Tensor Network algorithms
* Topological order, spin liquids
* Quantum Algorithms (in particular for NISQ devices
   and for the simulation of many-body problems)
* Entanglement Theory
* Mathematical structure of quantum many-body systems
* Quantum Complexity Theory

Successful candidates will be associated either with the Department of Physics or the Department of Mathematics. Appointments will be for an initial period of 2 years, with the possibility of extension. Starting
dates are flexible. Salaries are about 54500 EUR per year before taxes (35500 EUR after taxes).
