Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics

Location: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, FL
Application Deadline: Consideration of applications will begin on November 15, 2022, and continue until the position is filled.

The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory invites applications for the Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship, a two-year (renewable for an additional 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 National MagLab. In particular, we are looking for applicants interested in any of the following research topics: unconventional superconductivity, strongly correlated electron systems, magnetism, 2D moiré/graphene/TMD systems, and plasmonics. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate a high aptitude for theoretical research as well as to draw on the close connection with the ongoing experimental program both at the MagLab and host universities.

The expectation is that upon appointment, the successful 2023 candidate will be located at the MagLab in Tallahassee in the condensed matter theory group (Kun Yang, Nick Bonesteel, Vlad Dobrosavljevic, Oskar Vafek, Hitesh Changlani, and Cyprian Lewandowski). The appointment includes a competitive salary and benefits, $5000 annually in discretionary funds to cover research and travel expenses, and the opportunity to travel to the other two MagLab sites at Los Alamos and the University of Florida at Gainesville. Applicants from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit the following:

  1. A statement of prior research activities and future research interests that will be pursued at the MagLab if granted a 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 November 15, 2022 and continue until the position is filled. The appointment will commence on or about September 1, 2023.

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