Job position at University of Alberta. Deadline is on
Postdoctoral Fellow in Condensed Matter Theory
Condensed matter theory
The Department of Physics at the University of Alberta invites applications to fill a postdoctoral position in condensed matter theory, with a starting date of any time up to Sept. 2023. The successful applicant will work in collaboration with Prof. Frank Marsiglio. The position is a full-time 1-year appointment, renewable for 1 more year subject to performance and mutual agreement. The salary for the position is $50,000 CAD per year plus supplemental health benefits. Research topics include superconductivity and strongly correlated electrons. Of particular interest is the interplay between the electron-phonon interaction and Coulomb repulsion, as described through quantum Monte Carlo simulations. The applicant must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics obtained within the last five (5) years, a strong background in quantum many-body physics, and previous research experience in theoretical condensed matter physics (analytical and computational).
