Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics

Location: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, FL
Application Deadline: Open until filled

The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) invites applications for the Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship, a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in condensed matter theory. The program is designed for Ph.D.’s with a research interest in any of the condensed matter areas represented by the three sites of the MagLab. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate high aptitude for theoretical research as well as to draw on the close connection with the ongoing experimental program. Extension for a third year is possible, contingent upon exemplary performance.

The expectation is that upon appointment the successful 2020 candidate will be located at the MagLab in Tallahassee. The appointment includes a highly competitive salary and benefits, $5000 annually in discretionary funds to cover research and/or travel expenses, and the opportunity to travel to the other two MagLab sites at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of Florida at Gainesville. Members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit the following:

  1. A brief (two-pages maximum) statement of prior research activities and future research interests that will be pursued at the MagLab if granted the Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship.
  2. Curriculum vitae including publications.
  3. At least three letters of reference in support of the application. (Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts will be required from successful applicants to whom offers are extended).

Application review will begin on Oct. 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled. The appointment will commence on or about Aug. 31, 2020.

All application packets should be submitted, preferably by email in PDF electronic format to:
