Postdoctoral Positions at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) (Dec 2022)

1) Post-doctoral Fellow in Computational and Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics

Apply now

Ref.: 518693
Work type: Full-time
Department: Department of Physics (25600)
Categories: Senior Research Staff & Post-doctoral Fellow

Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow(s) in Computational and Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics (Ref.: 518693), to commence as soon as possible for one year, with the possibility of renewal.

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree in Condensed Matter Physics.  Experience in numerical techniques and analytical field-theoretical approaches is desirable.  Applicants who are in the process of completing a Ph.D. degree will also be considered.  

The appointee will work with Dr. Zi Yang Meng to conduct research on computational and theoretical condensed matter physics.  Areas of research include diagrammatic calculations, quantum Monte Carlo methods, density matrix renormalization group and tensor network states, and artificial intelligence and neural networks, with particular focus on applying these numerical approaches to quantum many-body systems, such as correlated 2D materials, quantum Moire systems, frustrated magnets, topological order, quantum phase transitions beyond Landau-Ginzburg-Wilson paradigms, etc.  The recent works of Dr. Meng and the group can be found at https://quantummc.xyz/.

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.  At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income. 


The University only accepts online application for the above post.  Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V., a cover letter with a publication list and a research statement.  Applicants should also arrange three reference letters to be sent directly by the referees to Dr. Zi Yang Meng at zymeng@hku.hk.  Review of applications will start as soon as possible and continue until June 30, 2023, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.

Advertised: Dec 20, 2022 (HK Time)
Applications close: Jun 30, 2023 (HK Time)


2) Post-doctoral Fellow in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics

Apply now

Ref.: 518702
Work type: Full-time
Department: Department of Physics (25600)
Categories: Senior Research Staff & Post-doctoral Fellow

Applications are invited for appointment as Post-doctoral Fellow in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics in the Department of Physics (Ref.: 518702) to commence as soon as possible on or before April 30, 2023 for two years, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance.

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. degree in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics or a related area, with more than three years of research experience in fabrications of nano-electronic devices and/or low-temperature & low-noise electrical measurements. The applicant must be highly motivated. Priority will be given to those who have operated dilution refrigerator or other ultra-low temperature cryogenic systems and carried out low-noise electrical transport measurements. Those who are expecting to complete the degree before the application deadline will also be considered.

The appointee will pursue research on Quantum Correlations in Engineered 2D Materials that include many interesting topics, such as quantum many body states in ultraclean suspended graphene nanostructures, correlations in moirĂ©-induced nearly flat bands, van der Waals engineered new quantum transport phenomena, and more in the group of Dr. Dongkeun Ki. Details of the research activities can be found at https://www.physics.hku.hk/~dkkilab

Those who have responded to the previous advertisement (Ref.: 515018) need not re-apply.

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.  At current rates, salaries tax does not exceed 15% of gross income. 

The University only accepts online application for the above post. Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V., a cover letter and a list of publications. Review of applications will start as soon as possible and continue until April 30, 2023, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
