The Max Planck-UBC-UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials is a collaborative venture between the Max Planck Society (Germany), University of British Columbia (Canada), and the University of Tokyo (Japan) featuring internationally recognized leading scientists and extensive infrastructure for research in quantum materials. This partnership supports collaborative projects, scholarly exchanges, annual workshops, and joint schools for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The Center provides a platform for interdisciplinary exchange and cooperation and is led by three co-directors:
Prof. Bernhard Keimer (MPI for Solid State Research, Stuttgart)
Prof. Andrea Damascelli (University of British Columbia, Vancouver)
Prof. Atsushi Fujimori (University of Tokyo).
The Center is now actively recruiting Postdoctoral Research Fellows for 2-3 years. The starting date is flexible. For a list of current projects see
Successful applicants will be outstanding and highly motivated scientists with a strong background in physics or chemistry. Strong publications on quantum materials and enthusiasm for collaborative research are expected.
Interested candidates should send their complete application to the email at
The uploaded file must contain a curriculum vitae, publication list, and research statement. Questions concerning the application procedure can be addressed to Prof. Dirk Manske, Scientific Coordinator
The deadline for applications is Sunday, May 5th, 2019.
The Max Planck-UBC-UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials is committed to employing more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply. The Center seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
