Postdoctoral positions in Condensed Matter Theory are available in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in the group of Professors Elbio Dagotto and Adriana Moreo.

Areas of interest are iron- and copper-based high critical temperature superconductors, spin liquids, influence of spin-orbit coupling on phase diagrams of correlated electrons, topological systems, quasi one-dimensional chains and ladders, non-equilibrium properties of correlated electrons, oxide interfaces, bulk complex oxides, multiferroic materials, and several others.

We are interested in a variety of many-body techniques, particularly Density Matrix Renormalization Group both for static and time/omega dependent calculations, Lanczos/Exact Diagonalization, Monte Carlo simulations, mean-field and variational approximations, and others.

The main location for this work will be at the University of Tennessee; however, our group has a close connection with Oak Ridge National Laboratory where part of the postdoctoral effort could be performed.
