Three post-doctoral Fellowships in Foundations of Complexity : Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Applications are invited for young, highly skilled and motivated researchers in the three following subjects:

i) Study of anomalous entropic behaviors in strongly- entangled quantum systems, and their corresponding thermostatistical description. A centrally related paper is Caruso and Tsallis, Physical Review E 78, 021102 (2008). The purpose is to proceed this study focusing, among others, on which is density matrix associated, by using for instance Density Matrix Renormalization Group (DMRG) techniques.

ii) Computation efforts in statistical-mechanical and thermodynamical properties of long-range-interacting classical many-body Hamiltonian systems (e.g., universality classes of nonadditivity; exhibition of the zeroth principle of thermodynamics, anomalous distributions of momenta). The focus is on using essentially molecular dynamics: see a typical example in Cirto, Assis and Tsallis, Physica A 393, 286 (2014).

iii) Analytical efforts (in the style of mathematics, or of mathematical physics) along the lines of Central Limit Theorems and Large Deviation Theory, for systems with strongly correlated elements. Typical examples can be seen in Umarov, Tsallis and Steinberg, Milan J. Math. 76, 307 (2008), Umarov, Tsallis, Gell-Mann and Steinberg, J. Math. Phys. 51, 033502 (2010), and Ruiz and Tsallis, Phys. Lett. A 377, 491 (2013).

The three, immediately available, Fellowships are renewable up to 33 months. The stipend is the equivalent in Brazilian Real of USD 4,545.45/month (12 payments per year; free of taxes).

The working place is the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Fisicas, Rio de Janeiro, in direct relationship with Prof. Constantino Tsallis and his collaborators.

Interested researchers should quickly contact C. Tsallis (tsallis@cbpf.br) and Thamires Bengaly Pereira (bengaly@cbpf.br), attaching CV and List of Publications.
