POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN CONDENSED MATTER THEORY, UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, KNOXVILLE
University of Tennessee
Location: Knoxville, Tennessee
Physics: Condensed Matter
Postdoctoral positions in Condensed Matter Theory are available in the group of Professors Elbio Dagotto and Adriana Moreo.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Correlated electrons, such as Ni-, Fe-, Cu-based high Tc superconductors; Topological materials, particularly in combination with strong correlation; Majoranas in one and two dimensions, static and dynamic, braiding; moire' systems; skyrmions and other spin textures; spin-orbit coupling in its many forms; quasi one-dimensional chains and ladders; spin liquids in their many forms; bulk complex oxides.
We are primarily interested in candidates with knowledge on computational many-body techniques, particularly Density Matrix Renormalization Group, both ground state and dynamic, Lanczos/Exact Diagonalization, Monte Carlo simulations in its many variations, ground state and dynamical mean field, variational approximations, and others. Many-body expertise of any kind will also be seriously considered.
Information about our group can be found in our web page http://sces.phys.utk.edu. The main location for this work will be at the University of Tennessee. However, our group has a close connection with Oak Ridge National Laboratory where part of the postdoctoral effort could be performed.
To apply, candidates should submit a letter of application (1 page) + full CV + research interests (2 pages), all combined in a single PDF, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . The candidate should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email address.
