f-Electron Topological Superconductivity Postdoc

Company: Los Alamos National Laboratory
Location: Los Alamos
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

**What You Will Do** The Group of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems in the Theoretical Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has an immediate postdoctoral position opening in the area of theoretical modeling and simulation of quantum materials. The opened position provides an opportunity to pursue topological superconductivity in _f_ -electron quantum materials with strong correlation and spin-orbit coupling. It will involve calculating the static and dynamical correlation functions, the pairing instability, analyzing the topological nature, and working closely with experimentalists for the discovery of _f_ -electron topological superconductors. **_What You Need_** **Minimum Job Requirements:** The successful candidate must have a strong skill, with an excellent scientific record of publications, in computational strongly correlated electron quantum materials. Experience with dynamical susceptibility calculations in either first-principles-based many-body perturbation theory (e.g., RPA, GW) or LDA+DMFT is required. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with Wien2k+DMFT electron structure code. The ability to work creatively and independently, as a part of a diverse team, is important. Strong communication and language skills, as evidenced by publications and cover letter, are essential. **Education:** Candidates must have a Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter or quantum materials physics (completed within the last 5 years). **Note to Applicants:** Please apply for this position online, and also send a resume, publication list, research interests, a brief statement of future plans and the names of three references to Dr. Jian-Xin Zhu ( ). The position has an initial appointment of two years. Additional information on salary ranges and other benefits can be found online atCandidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships. For more information about the Postdoc Program, go to . **_Where You Will Work_** Located in beautiful northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. Our generous benefits package includes: PPO or High Deductible medical insurance with the same large nationwide network Dental and vision insurance Free basic life and disability insurance Paid maternity and parental leave Award-winning 401(k) (6% matching plus 3.5% annually) Learning opportunities and tuition assistance Flexible schedules and time off (paid sick, vacation, and holidays) Onsite gyms and wellness programs Extensive relocation packages (outside a 50 mile radius) **_Additional Details_** Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks. **New-Employment Drug Test:** The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing. **Equal Opportunity:** Los Alamos National Laboratory is an equal opportunity employer and supports a diverse and inclusive workforce.
