For all prospective applicants to our laboratory

In our research laboratory, we conduct theoretical studies in condensed matter physics, solid-state electron theory, and fundamental quantum theory. Our main research objective is to utilize knowledge of quantum statistical physics to elucidate and predict new principles and functionalities. We are actively seeking individuals who are interested in the quantum world and are eager to participate in cutting-edge research to explore the frontier of quantum physics.

For detailed research topics, please refer to the research topics.

Recruiting Graduate Students

For information regarding graduate school admissions, please refer to the Applied Physics Department’s webpage.

Master’s Program

For the doctoral program (master’s program) in our laboratory, the prerequisite knowledge of physics includes quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, electromagnetism, mechanics, and mathematics (calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, etc.). If you have acquired a fundamental understanding in these areas, you will be well-equipped to engage in research activities.

We welcome individuals who are interested in the world of quantum physics and would like to experience theoretical research in areas such as superconductivity, superfluidity, ultracold atomic systems, topological magnetic structures, and topological quantum phenomena. Additionally, if you are a fourth-year undergraduate student in the Faculty of Science and are undecided between pursuing studies in particle/cosmic fields and condensed matter physics, please feel free to reach out to us. In recent research, many concepts proposed in particle/cosmic fields have appeared in experimentally feasible condensed matter physics systems.

The ideal student profile we are looking for is as follows:

  • Have a passion for physics and mathematics.
  • Enjoy numerical computation and simulations.
  • Are interested in actively collaborating with researchers from overseas.
  • Wish to pursue a doctoral (postgraduate) program and contribute to the advancement of the aforementioned fields.
  • Aspire to become researchers who can make significant contributions on a global scale.

Doctor’s Program

In our research laboratory, we actively welcome students to pursue the doctoral (postgraduate) program. We hope that you will become researchers who excel on the forefront of your field. It would be advantageous if you have experience in researching the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics, focusing on quantum many-body systems.

Historically, our research laboratory has produced many graduates who have gone on to work in national universities, private universities, and technical colleges. Additionally, several alumni have pursued successful careers in research positions within various companies after obtaining their doctoral degrees.

Regarding the acceptance of JSPS Postdoctoral Fellows (PDs)

We welcome applications for acceptance as JSPS Postdoctoral Fellows. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us. After discussing the details of our research topics, we would appreciate it if you could consider applying.

Regarding the acceptance of YLC Designated Assistant Professors

At Nagoya University, under the principle that securing young faculty members, especially at the assistant professor level, is crucial, we employ Special Assistant Professors through the Young Leaders Cultivation (YLC) program. Recruitment is conducted annually around springtime. If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us.
