Postdoctorals positions in Condensed Matter Theory are available at the Department of Physics of 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, influence of spin-orbit coupling on phase diagrams of correlated electrons, quasi one-dimensional chains and ladders, non-equilibrium properties of correlated electrons, oxide interfaces, bulk complex oxides, multiferroic materials, and others.


The group is interested in a variety of many-body techniques, such as Monte Carlo simulations, density matrix renormalization group, exact diagonalization, density functional theory, dynamical mean field theory, and others.


Information about the group can be found in The main location for this work will be the University of Tennessee, but the group has a close connection with Oak Ridge National Laboratory where part of the postdoctoral effort could be performed.
