The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota invites applications for a postdoc position in theoretical condensed matter physics. The research of the candidate will be co-supervised by Prof. Rafael Fernandes and Prof. Turan Birol, and will be on combined first principles and analytical studies of electrostatically gated quantum materials. Experience with first principles methods such as Density Functional Theory (DFT) or DFT+Dynamical Mean Field Theory is preferable but is not required. The position will be within the university’s
Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), and as such will involve collaborations with experimental groups. More information about the MRSEC can be found at

Candidates with a PhD degree in physics or related fields are encouraged to apply. The position is expected to last for up to two years. Please apply online at: (Job ID 337334). The application consists of a single pdf file containing a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a brief research statement, and the names and complete contact information for three references.
