Los Alamos National Laboratory Topological Quantum Materials Postdoc in Los Alamos, New Mexico
Vacancy Name: IRC78137
Job Title Topological Quantum Materials Postdoc
Location Los Alamos, NM, US
Organization Name T-4/Physics Of Condensed Matter & Complex Systems
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 modeling and simulation of quantum materials. The opened positions provide an opportunity to pursue fundamental studies of the role of electronic correlation effects and nonequilibrium physics in topological 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), nonequilibrium dynamics, and/or strong correlation effects in quantum materials. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in using quantum many-body approaches (e.g., DMFT, Exact Diagonalization, and DMRG) and/or nonequilibrium techniques to unravel the effects of strong correlations and nonequilibrium on 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: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter or quantum materials physics (completed within the last 5 years).
Notes to applicants: Please apply for this position online, and also send a resume, publication list, research interests, a brief statement of future plans and the names of three references to Dr. Jian-Xin Zhu ( email@example.com ). The position has an initial appointment of two years. Additional information on salary ranges and other benefits can be found online at http://www.lanl.gov/science/postdocs/ .
Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks.
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.
