Postdoctoral positions in Condensed Matter Theory are available in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in the group of Professors Elbio Dagotto and Adriana Moreo.

Areas of interest are high critical temperature superconductors, spin liquids, influence of spin-orbit coupling on phase diagrams of correlated electrons, topological systems, quasi one-dimensional chains and ladders, oxide interfaces, bulk complex oxides, skyrmions, Majoranas, strong correlation combined with topology, multiferroic materials, and several others.

We are primarily interested in candidates with knowledge in computational many-body techniques, particularly Density Matrix Renormalization Group both static and time/omega dependent calculations, Lanczos/Exact Diagonalization, Monte Carlo simulations in its many variations, mean-field and variational approximations, and others. But many-body expertise of any kind will also be seriously considered.

Information about our group can be found in  The main location for this work will be at the University of Tennessee; however, our group has a close connection with Oak Ridge National Laboratory where part of the postdoctoral effort could be performed.

Required Qualifications:

Education: Ph.D

To apply, candidates should submit application information, CV, and statement of research interests to . The candidate should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted to the same location. Screening of applicants will start immediately and continue until positions are filled.

UT’s Department of Physics & Astronomy has an exemplary research record, with seven professors earning NSF CAREER awards in the past eight years, eight professors recently cited among the world’s top two percent of physicists (based on citations), and Professor Geoff Greene honored with the prestigious Bonner Prize in 2020. The University of Tennessee is a thriving research community located near Oak Ridge National Laboratory, with whom UT shares five joint institutes. Situated in the Tennessee Valley, the University is on the doorstep of the Smoky Mountains National Park.
