Physics: Condensed Matter, Physics: Materials, Physics: Solid State
The Center for Quantum Materials (CQM) at the University of Minnesota invites applications for multiple postdoctoral research associate positions. CQM brings together an interdisciplinary research team from the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science to investigate the physics and materials science of quantum materials, specifically complex oxides. There are currently two openings for an experimentalist, and one opening for a theorist.
The experimentalist postdocs will work under the supervision of Martin Greven. Required qualifications are a PhD in experimental condensed matter physics, and experience with at least one of the following techniques: neutron scattering; photon science (X-ray scattering, Raman scattering, optical spectroscopy, photoemission spectroscopy); low-temperature charge transport; crystal growth/sample characterization. A research background in quantum materials is highly preferred.
The theory postdoc will work under the supervision of Turan Birol on the first principle studies (Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT)) of quantum materials. Required qualifications are a PhD in physics, materials science, or a related field, and prior experience with first principles approaches. Familiarity with many-body approaches including DMFT is highly preferred.
Review of applications will begin immediately, and continue until the positions are field. Highly motivated candidates are encouraged to submit their applications via the following links:
For further information, please e-mail Prof. Turan Birol at firstname.lastname@example.org (theory position), or Prof. Martin Greven at email@example.com (experimental position). The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
