The William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute (FTPI) at the University of Minnesota would like to announce the opening of a postdoctoral research associate position in theoretical condensed matter physics. The ideal candidate will conduct cutting edge re-search in broadly defined areas of modern theoretical condensed matter physics. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Professors Andrey Chubukov and Alex Kamenev and is encouraged to collaborate with other faculty in FTPI and the School of Physics and Astronomy. Scientific research will include the analysis of  correlated electrons, dynamical correlations, and other modern aspects of condensed-matter physics.

Job duties will include the following:
60%  Carrying out research in theoretical condensed matter physics. Determining which unresolved questions to study. Deciding on the appropriate theoretical methods to use to answer these questions. Deriving or extending these methods as needed. Evaluating the results for consistency, both internal consistency and with experimental results.
30%  Communicating research to the broader community. Writing papers and submitting them for publication in scientific journals. Giving seminar talks at various institutions. Presenting results at conferences (both domestic and international).
10% Maintaining familiarity with cutting edge results and methods. Reading relevant papers. Organizing and participating in the condensed matter Journal club. Attending seminars and conferences.
Other duties of a similar scope as assigned.

Required qualifications: A Ph.D. in physics by the start date of appointment. For general questions please contact The position is open effective immediately. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
