*** the list date or deadline for this fellowship has passed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Postdoctoral applications are currently being accepted by the Condensed Matter Theory Center (CMTC) at the University of Maryland, Department of Physics. To apply, upload your CV, research statement, publication list, and have at least 3 letters of reference submitted on your behalf. We anticipate hiring 2-4 new CMTC postdocs in 2017.

We are interested in all aspects of quantum condensed matter theory (including cold atom physics), but there is particular current interest in the following topics (although applications showing other interests will still be considered): solid state quantum computation using semiconductors and/or superconductors, spin qubits and spin decoherence, Dirac and Weyl systems, topological quantum matter, topological quantum computation, strongly correlated phenomena, semiconductor quantum dots in GaAs and Si, exotic superconductivity, emergent Majorana fermions in solid state materials and the physics of non-Abelian anyons, quantum many-body aspects of cold atoms and molecules, many-body localization, and physics of two dimensional systems quantum Hall effects.

CMTC is a theory center of 6 professorial faculty members, 10-20 postdoctoral fellows, 10-15 graduate students, and some occasional visitors. CMTC is engaged in all aspects of quantum condensed matter theory. To get some idea about the breadth of CMTC research interests, please visit

Applications should be received by December 1, 2016 for full consideration.

To be considered for the CMTC Postdoctoral Fellowship (even the ones which will be joint with JQI), you must apply for a CMTC Fellowship which is considered separately from the JQI Fellowship.
