Postdoctoral Fellowships in Theoretical Condensed Matter and Quantum Information
University of British Columbia 

Stuart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (QMI)

Start-date: Summer/Fall 2023

Application deadline: November 18, 2022

Apply through: (this webpage)

Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is seeking multiple postdoctoral researchers with expertise in theoretical and/or computational condensed matter physics, atomic physics, and quantum information science to work with principal investigators Marcel Franz and Andrew Potter.

Areas of interesting include:

  • Topological phases of matter 

  • Moire materials

  • Tensor network methods

  • Quantum criticality and non-Fermi liquid physics

  • Entanglement in quantum many-body systems

  • Non-equilibrium quantum dynamics

  • Algorithms for quantum simulation

  • and other related topics

Applications may be submitted on (this webpage) and should include a CV (please include a link to a current Google scholar profile page), brief (2-4 page) statement of research experience and interests, and 3 letters of recommendation. Applications received prior to November 18, 2022 will receive full consideration, but the position will remain open until filled.

SBQMI is a world-leading venture into research of systems and phenomena involving quantum materials. We believe in the power of collaboration to fuel the search for creative solutions and, in addition to building a strong interdisciplinary team of experimentalists and theorists from physics, chemistry and engineering, have established strong and active partnerships with TRIUMF, the Canadian Light Source, the Max Planck Society, and other world leading institutions.
