Joint Cornell/Weizmann Postdoctoral Position – Condensed Matter Theory

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position supported jointly by Professors Debanjan Chowdhury (Cornell University) and Erez Berg (Weizmann Institute of Science). We expect the postdoc to spend substantial amounts of time at both institutions, details of which can be worked out depending on mutual convenience.

Topics of interest include novel phases of quantum matter, including quantum spin-liquids, strongly interacting topological phases, non-Fermi liquids, unconventional superconductivity, non-equilibrium quantum dynamics and development of new approaches for studying problems with strong interactions.

Candidates should have a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics or a closely related field, be highly motivated, and have a strong background in analytical and/or numerical methods. The appointment includes a competitive salary and benefits, and discretionary funds for research and/or travel expenses. The position will begin Fall 2020 and can be renewed annually for up to four years contingent upon satisfactory performance.

Prospective candidates should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, publication list and outline of research interests, and should arrange for three letters of reference (one of which should be from the candidate's PhD advisor) to be sent electronically through Academic Jobs Online.

Applications received before October 10 will be assured full consideration, but we will continue to receive applications until the position is filled. Questions should be directed to Debanjan Chowdhury (
