About the Project
The aim of this ambitious research project is to make progress in the numerical tools that we have available to simulate electronically correlated quantum materials – to transfer the accuracy of quantum chemical approaches to the setting of extended systems, and apply these developments to systems where the physics is insufficiently described with existing techniques. This will involve development of new approximations and techniques, from inception and implementation, to their application. These methods will borrow from a range of techniques in other fields to make progress, including machine learning, quantum computing, Monte Carlo sampling and tensor networks. These new ideas will be developed and then applied to real systems of significant technological interest.
Applicants should have a background and enthusiasm for quantum many-body theory from a physics or chemistry perspective, programming and numerical modelling skills, as well as being keen to work in a team, based in central London at King's College London.
UK (home) students are eligible to apply, and encouraged to get in contact with the PI ([Email Address Removed]) with a brief CV as soon as possible for more information and details on how to apply.
