Los Alamos National Laboratory Theory Postdoc in Topological Quantum Materials in Los Alamos, New Mexico
What You Will Do
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. 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/Experience :Candidates must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter or quantum materials physics (completed within the last 5 years).
