2023 Theory Winter School

The National High Magnetic Field Lab in Tallahassee, Florida, will hold its eleventh annual Theory Winter School in person from January 9 to 13, 2023.

  • Overview

    This year's theme is electron correlations in fractional quantum Hall effects and moiré materials. The School aims to provide an introductory overview of key results and unanswered questions in both fields, theoretical and experimental, and point towards possible connections or analogies between these two correlated systems.

  • About the MagLab


    The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (less formally known as the Magnet Lab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, headquartered in a sprawling 370,000-square-foot complex near Florida State University in Tallahassee. The lab also includes sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Together these three institutions operate the lab, collaborating in a unique, interdisciplinary way to advance basic science, engineering and technology in the 21st century.

    Magnet Lab
    The Magnet Lab.

    Established by the National Science Foundation in 1990, the lab is a national resource open to both curious visitors and world-renowned scientists. Centralizing the country's greatest magnet-related tools, resources and expertise is not only efficient and cost-effective, but also encourages fruitful, collaborative research at the highest level. Every year, more than 900 visiting scientists and engineers from across the world conduct experiments using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our magnets are far larger, far more powerful and far more complex than the everyday magnets most people are familiar with. Many were designed, developed and built by our magnet engineering and design team, widely recognized as the finest in the world.

    The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory offers 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, this year, 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.
