The ground-state properties of a two-dimensional quantum-dot are studied. We have used the shifted 1/N expansion method to solve the relative part Hamiltonian of two electrons confined in a quantum in the presence of an applied uniform magnetic field. The spin singlet-triplet transition in the ground state of the QD is shown. We have also displayed the singlet-triplet energy gap, J = \Delta = E_T - E_S, against the strength of the magnetic field for two electron quantum dot. Based on comparisons, the eigenenergies obtained by the shifted method are in excellent agreement with exact, variational, Hartree-Fock (HF) and Full-Configuration Interaction (FCI) methods.
