The Physics Department of Ariel University, Israel, invites applications for a two year postdoctoral research position. The starting date is in 2023 and is negotiable.

The subject is the interrelations between high energy physics and condensed matter physics theory, with the emphasis in the topological effects. The successful candidate will work under the joint supervision of Prof. Mikhail Zubkov and Prof. Meir Lewkowicz

The particular interest is in at least one of the following fields

- Topological description of non - dissipative transport phenomena with applications in condensed matter physics and in high energy physics

- The application of Keldysh technique to the description of non – dissipative transport phenomena (quantum Hall effect, chiral magnetic effect, etc).

- the application of quantum field theory technique to the physics of Dirac and Weyl semimetals,

- Development of Wigner – Weyl calculus in the framework of the field theoretical description of condensed matter systems

The applicants will have the opportunity to interact with the other theorists of the physics Department of Ariel University including A.Klein (condensed matter physics), S.Bondarenko (perturbative QCD), I.Ben-Dayan (cosmology), A.Prygarin (mathematical physics), A.Kashi, L.Tal-Or, Dafne Guetta (astrophysics), M.Schiffer (quantum black holes), V.Belavin (conformal field theory).

Candidates with a PhD in Physics and with expertise in the theoretical condensed matter physics are encouraged to send their applications including

–a Curriculum Vitae –a list of publications –a research statement

by e-mail to: and with the subject: Application Postdoc

Applications will be considered until the position is filled

There are no bounds on the age of the applicants.

To consider the application, at least two letters of recommendation are required, to be sent by e-mail to: with the subject: Recommendation Postdoc, name of candidate. Alternatively, the letters may be uploaded by the applicant through https://academicjobsonline
