Associate Research Scientist/Research Scientist, CCQ
The Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) of the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute invites applications for one or more Associate Research Scientist positions. In exceptional circumstances appointment at the Research Scientist level may be considered. Particular consideration will be given to applicants with a strong background and research agenda in: Computational approaches to strong electronic correlations in quantum materials, or: Machine learning approaches to quantum many body theory.
Associate Research Scientists at CCQ are typically appointed for an initial 3 years period, with a possible extension for an additional 3 years. Promotion to a non term-limited Research Scientist position is possible upon review. Review of applications will start on or about Nov 1, 2020.
Data Scientist/Associate Data Scientist, CCQ – Auxiliary-Field Quantum Monte Carlo
The Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) of the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute invites applications for an Associate Data Scientist or Data Scientist position. This full-time, permanent position offers an exceptional career opportunity at the interface of science and computing, with flexibility to be immersed in frontier scientific research while focusing on computing, algorithms, and support. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Physics or related field, with a strong background in the development and application of quantum physics/chemistry software for research. Experience with quantum Monte Carlo or closely related methods, and with lattice model, electronic structure or quantum chemistry calculations, are essential. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
