Position Description:    

*** The account for Condensed Matter Physics, University of California, San Diego has expired, and no new applications is accepted. ***

The Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for a postdoctoral position in theoretical condensed matter physics, with a starting date in the Fall 2020. The successful applicant will work in collaboration with Profs. Daniel Arovas, Tarun Grover, John McGreevy and Yi-Zhuang You, and would be strongly encouraged to interact and collaborate with other members of the department. This position is a full-time two-year appointment, renewable for a third year by mutual agreement.

The research will focus on quantum many-body physics and, depending on the background and interests of the successful candidate, could involve topics such as quantum field theory, quantum dynamics, quantum phases of matter, quantum information as applied to problems in many-body physics, strongly correlated materials such as frustrated magnets, heavy fermion systems and high-Tc superconductors. Candidates with strong background in either analytical and/or numerical techniques are encouraged to apply.

Prospective candidates should submit a curriculum vitae which contains their publication list, and a 1-2 page description of research interests through AcademicJobsOnline. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted by the letter writers through AcademicJobsOnline.

Candidates interested in being considered for a postdoctoral fellowship sponsored by the Simons Collaboration on Ultra-Quantum Matter, consisting of twelve academic institutions including UCSD, should also submit an application at the following link:

The deadline for applications is November 15, 2019, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
