Postdoctoral Position in Condensed Matter Theory at University of Alabama at Birmingham

The condensed mattery theory group has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Physics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. We are seeking individuals with expertise in quantum transport, spintronics, topological materials, low-dimension materials, interaction-induced phase transitions, and first-principles simulations of magnetic systems. The project involves theoretical studies of magnetic topological systems for spintronics application, interaction induced novel phases in low-dimensional topological materials, and nonequilibrium quantum spin (pseudospin) dynamics. A Ph.D. in theoretical physics or a related field is desirable for this position.

The anticipated average salary for this position is $50,000/year and can be negotiated depending on years of experience after doctoral degree. The program offers fringe benefits including health insurance. The position will have an initial appointment for one-year but can be extended to a period of three-years depending on satisfactory performance and availability of funding. Please e-mail a curriculum vitae (including a list of publications) along with the names of the three references to Prof. Fei Xue at
