Classification Title:

Post Doctoral Associate

Job Description:

The Department of Physics seeks a Post Doctoral Associate in Condensed Matter Theory to work on research led by Dr. Hirschfeld. The Post Doctoral Associate will conduct experimentally-motivated theoretical and numerical studies directed toward the understanding of emerging superconducting and strongly correlated systems, and the effect of various irregularities and inhomogeneities in their properties.

The Department of Physics particularly welcomes applicants who can contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. Please see for more information about diversity and inclusion in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The university and greater Gainesville communities enjoy a diversity of cultural events, restaurants, year-round outdoor recreational activities, and social opportunities.

Minimum Requirements:

Ph.D. in Physics.

Preferred Qualifications:

Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter physics

Desired qualifications:

  1. Experience in low dimensional condensed matter systems, exact analytical solutions, numerical methods such as exact diagonalizations and Bogoliubov-de-Gennes methods for superconductors.
  2. A few years experience in high-performance computing environment, and substantial background in programming & simulation.
  3. Experience with newly emerging topological superconducting systems is preferred. Some background in quantum computation and/or machine learning is welcome.
  4. Additional interdisciplinary interests/research experience in related domains of physics are welcome.
