Rutgers Center for Materials Theory is seeking the application of talented candidates for a number of postdoctoral research positions in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics, beginning Fall 2020.   We are seeking applicants with a particular interest in the application of analytical and  computational  many body physics to quantum materials, with the view to working in the following areas:
  • Polar Systems near Ferroelectric Quantum Critical Points
  • Emulating Twistronics with cold-atoms
  • Entanglement properties of f-electron materials
  • Hund’s metals and iron based superconductors
  • Interacting topological quantum materials
  • Strong Correlations in Low Dimensions
Research in the group is led by Natan Andrei, Premala Chandra, Piers Coleman, Kristjan Haule, Gabriel Kotliar, Jed Pixley, Karin Rabe, David Vanderbilt and Emil Yuzbashyan.
Postdocs are encouraged to develop a broad portfolio, diversifying their research through additional collaborations with more than one group or faculty mentor.  Interests in our group span a broad range of frontier challenges in many body and condensed matter physics research.  We have a world-class reputation for ground-breaking and creative research in the areas of emergent quantum materials. Our interests include strongly correlated electron materials, heavy fermion materials, transition metal-based high temperature
superconductivity, twisted van der Waals heterostructures, quantum phase transitions, polar metals near quantum critical points, topological states of matter, ultra-cold atomic gases, non-perturbative field theory methods, dynamical mean field theory approaches, mesoscopic physics, non-equilibrium quantum matter, transport and quantum impurities,  quantum computation and the first-principles calculation of electronic structure.
