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

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 2018 (or later).  We work on a broad range of topics including unconventional superconductors, heavy fermion materials, quantum phase transition and topological materials.

Theoretical expertise in condensed matter theory is required. Experience in driven quantum systems with dissipation and decoherence is preferred. We welcome candidates with background in numerical simulations of quantum many-body systems. 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 the latest experimental development, and to access the state-of-art supercomputers at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The candidate is expected to work on driven quantum systems under dissipation and decoherence.

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, and three letters of recommendation to
