Category: Postdoctoral Fellow

Department: SS

Location: Yungu, Hangzhou, CN

Employment Type: Full-time

Introduction of the Lab/ Research Field

Zheng YAN Laboratory of Westlake University mainly conducts theoretical and numerical research on quantum many-body physics, currently focusing on:

(1) Novel phase and phase transition, quasi-particle excitation of frustrated quantum magnetic system;

(2) Quantum simulation for lattice gauge theory, quantum adiabatic computing, etc.;

(3) Constrained quantum many-body systems, such as quantum dimer/loop models;

(4) Entanglement properties, such as entanglement entropy, entanglement spectrum;

(5) Developing numerical methods for quantum many-bodies, especially quantum Monte Carlo and related algorithms;

Of course, we welcome you to join us if you are interested in quantum many-body, to further explore the advantageous areas and open up new directions together.
