Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
You will work under the supervision of Professors Andrey Chubukov, Alex Kamenev and Boris Shklovskii in the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute and collaborate with faculty in the School of Physics and Astronomy. Scientific research will include the analysis of Fe-based superconductors, particularly unusual properties of pure and doped FeSe, the analysis of recently discovered superconductivity in doped graphene using various techniques, including parquet renormalization Group approach, and the analysis of the interplay between superconductivity and non-Fermi liquid physics near a metallic quantum critical point. The last study will also include the analysis of superconducting fluctuations within Luttinger-Ward approach.
Job duties will include the following:
60% Carrying out research in theoretical condensed matter physics. Determining which unresolved questions to study. Deciding on the appropriate theoretical methods to use to answer these questions. Deriving or extending these methods as needed. Evaluating the results for consistency, both internal consistency and with experimental results.
30% Communicating research to the broader community. Writing papers and submitting them for publication in scientific journals. Giving seminar talks at various institutions. Presenting results at conferences (both domestic and international).
10% Maintaining familiarity with cutting edge results and methods. Reading relevant papers. Organizing and participating in the condensed matter Journal club. Attending seminars and conferences.
Other duties of a similar scope as assigned.
Ph.D. in physics or closely related field by beginning date of appointment.
Experience in theoretical condensed matter physics
