The Department of Physics at The Pennsylvania State University is seeking to fill one postdoctoral scholar position in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. The candidate will work in Prof. Chaoxing Liu`s group, and may also collaborate with other theoretical and experimental colleagues at Penn State and elsewhere. The successful candidate will participate in the research of topological states of matters, particularly topological superconductivity and interacting topological phases, as well as their realization in new material systems and possible topological phenomena in these systems. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in theoretical condensed matter physics and relevant analytical and/or computational experience. Requirements include a Ph.D. in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. Applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover letter, CV and statement of research interests. Applicants should arrange for three reference letters to be submitted to indicating the appropriate job number in the subject line. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire, with possibility of re-funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable candidate is found.
