Text: Skip to main content Associate Research Scientist, CCQ/CCM 162 Fifth Avenue Apply POSITION SUMMARY The Center for Computational Quantum Physics and Center for Computational Mathematics of the Flatiron Institute invite applications for a position in the field of Mathematical Methods Applied to Quantum Many Body Science. The position may be at the Associate Research Scientist level or, in exceptional circumstances, at the Research Scientist level. Directed by Leslie Greengard, the Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM) is a leading international center for the study of applied and computational mathematics. Researchers at CCM create new mathematical approaches, algorithms and software to advance scientific research in multiple disciplines, often in collaboration with other Flatiron Centers. Directed by Antoine Georges and co-directed by Andrew Millis, the Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) is a leading international center for the study of equilibrium and non-equilibrium many-body quantum systems, with applications to condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry and related fields. The development of the concepts, algorithms and code libraries needed to advance the field is fundamental to the work of the center. Associate Research Scientists/Research Scientists are researchers who develop theoretical concepts, algorithms and codes, and apply these to obtain new insights into the quantum-mechanical behavior of materials and molecules. They develop their own research programs and also work in collaboration with other Flatiron scientists including postdoctoral fellows. Reporting to research scientists, and/or the director or co-director of CCQ or CCM as appropriate, these positions are based at the Flatiron Institute, Simons Foundation in New York City. Associate Research Scientists are typically appointed for an initial three-year period; the appointment may be renewed for up to another three years. Research Scientists positions are not term limited. Associate Research Scientists may be reviewed for promotion to a non-term-limited position as a research scientist. Hiring will occur at a level determined by the relevant experience of the candidate. Review of applications will begin on or about Nov 15, 2021.

Apply Posted 19 Days Ago Full time R0000423 About Us The Simons Foundation is a private foundation established in 1994 in New York City by Jim and Marilyn Simons. With an annual grants and programs budget of $450 million, the foundation’s mission is to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences. The foundation pursues its mission through its grant-making division, comprising programs in Mathematics & Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Education & Outreach and autism research, and through its internal research division, the Flatiron Institute. The Mathematics & Physical Sciences program supports work in mathematics, theoretical computer science and theoretical physics. The Life Sciences program works to advance basic research in life sciences, with, among other efforts, large grant programs in ocean ecology and in the origins of life. The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is a campaign that aims to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of autism by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance. SFARI also supports the editorially independent autism research news site Spectrum. In 2016, the foundation launched the Flatiron Institute (FI), a multidisciplinary institute whose mission is to advance scientific research through computational methods, including data analysis, modeling and simulation. The FI hosts scientists and collaborating expert programmers who work to create, deploy and support new state-of-the-art computational methods. Outreach & Education supports and promotes scientific literacy in society generally. Specifically, the program supports the nonprofit Math for America and the independent science news site, Quanta Magazine. This program’s Science Sandbox initiative seeks to unlock scientific thinking in all people, so that science becomes a more integral part of culture. SALARY AND BENEFITS In addition to competitive salaries, the Simons Foundation provides employees with an outstanding benefits package.
