Condensed Matters

We are currently looking for a talented Postdoc to join the group!

Applications will be considered until the position is filled:

Our research is in the area of computational condensed matter physics, focusing specifically on correlated and topological materials, quantum defects, materials discovery, and unconventional superconductivity.

This site is a condensed version of various academic matters and pursuits in our research group.
