The Group of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems in the Theoretical Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has immediate postdoctoral position openings in the area of theoretical modeling and simulation of quantum materials. The opened positions provide an opportunity to pursue fundamental studies of the role of electronic correlation effects and nonequilibrium physics in topological quantum materials.
The successful candidate must have a strong skill, with an excellent scientific record of publications, in condensed matter theory and modeling of one or more aspects of topological properties (including topological superconductivity), nonequilibrium dynamics, and/or strong correlation effects in quantum materials. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in using quantum many-body approaches (e.g., DMFT, Exact Diagonalization, and DMRG) and/or nonequilibrium techniques to unravel the effects of strong correlations and nonequilibrium on topology in quantum materials. The ability to work creatively and independently, as a part of a diverse team, is important. Strong communication and language skills, as evidenced by publications and cover letter, are required.
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Please apply for this position online through LANL website https://www.lanl.gov/careers/index.php (Job id IRC78137), and also send a resume, publication list, research interests, a brief statement of future plans and the names of three references to Dr. Jian-Xin Zhu (firstname.lastname@example.org). The position has an initial appointment of two years.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter or quantum materials physics (completed within the last 5 years).

About Los Alamos National Laboratory
Los Alamos National Laboratory is a United States Department of Energy national security laboratory. It was born in 1943 to use interdisciplinary scientific discovery and creative engineering to end World War II. The same spirit of innovation is taken today to solve the national security challenges. It is located a short distance northwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico in the southwestern United States.
