Postdoctoral Position in Condensed Matter Theory

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Friday, January 20, 2023

One postdoctoral scholarship position is available in the group of Jorge Cayao at the Quantum Matter Theory Program at Uppsala University, Sweden. The group studies different topics in the field of condensed matter theory, including topological matter, non-Hermitian physics, Floquet phases, and odd-frequency superconductivity.

The initial appointment will be for 1 year, with a possibility for renewal for another year depending on the scientific progress. The research line of this position is considerably open as long as it embraces the main interests of the group. Research experience in the above mentioned topics is beneficial.

The Quantum Matter Theory Program at Uppsala University offers a world-class environment for condensed matter theory research, with interests spanning from strongly correlated and topological states to non-equilibrium physics and quantum information. The program is highly international and currently consists of approximately 20 active members, of which approximately a third are Ph.D. students.

The application should be directly sent to as a single PDF file including the following documents:
+ Cover letter (max 1 page)
+ CV, including publication list and names of three references
+ Statement of research interests (max 2 pages)

Applications arriving before January 20, 2023, will be considered preferentially; recruiting will continue until the position is filled. Earliest starting date: May 2023. Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Enquiries and questions about the position should be directed to Jorge Cayao.
