Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in condensed matter theory at Texas Tech University in the group of Prof. Wade DeGottardi (Department of Physics and Astronomy) starting in Spring 2021. This research position will focus on the study of low-dimensional systems and materials that exhibit non-trivial topology. A likely focus of this work will be on engineered systems such as networks of superconducting circuits and photonic devices. Other potential projects involve exploring out-of-equilibrium behavior of strongly correlated quantum systems.
