The Group of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems in the Theoretical Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has immediate postdoctoral position openings in the area of theoretical study of topological quantum materials. The opened positions provide an opportunity to pursue fundamental studies of the role of electronic correlation effects and topology in quantum materials.
What You Need
Minimum Job Requirements:
The successful candidate must have a strong skill, with an excellent scientific record of publications, in condensed matter theory and modeling of one or more aspects of topological properties (including topological superconductivity), two dimensional materials, quantum Hall systems, and/or strong correlation effects in quantum materials. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in using quantum many-body approaches to unravel the interplay between strong correlations and topology in quantum materials and/or with knowledge of quantum information science. The ability to work creatively and independently, as a part of a diverse team, is important. Strong communication and language skills, as evidenced by publications and cover letter, are required.
Education: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter or quantum materials physics (completed within the last 5 years).
Notes to applicants: Please send a resume, publication list, research interests, a brief statement of future plans and the names of three references to:
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The position has an initial appointment of two years. Additional information on salary ranges and other benefits can be found online at https://www.lanl.gov/careers/career-options/postdoctoral-research/index.php?source=globalheadernav.
New-Employment Drug Test: The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.
Candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships.
