Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at Los Alamos National Laboratory, USA

The Physics of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems (T4) of Los Alamos National Laboratory has an opening for a post-doctoral fellowship in theoretical condensed matter physics October 2017 (or later).  We work on a broad range of topics including unconventional superconductors, heavy fermion materials, quantum phase transition and topological magnetic materials.

Theoretical expertise in condensed matter theory is required. We welcome candidates with background in numerical simulations of strongly correlated electronic systems, such as quantum Monte Carlo method and density matrix renormalization group method.

The prospective candidate must have completed a PhD program in theoretical physics. The initial appointment is for two years, with renewal contingent upon mutual agreement.

The successful candidates will have the opportunity to interact with experimentalists and access to the latest experimental development in the field of heavy fermion materials at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested applicants should send a curriculum vitae with a list of publications to

Dr. Shizeng Lin
Theoretical Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory
