Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Several Postdoctoral Associate positions in computational electronic structure theory in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University are anticipated, to begin in the summer or fall of 2021. Experience with first-principles methodologies for the calculation of materials properties is essential. Expertise in the areas of ferroelectric, multiferroic, magnetic, strongly spin-orbit coupled, topological, and/or strongly correlated materials is strongly desirable, since these are the anticipated areas of research. Each position will be supervised by one or more of the members of the computational electronic structure group consisting of Profs. Kristjan Haule, Gabi Kotliar, Karin Rabe, and David Vanderbilt, under the umbrella of the Rutgers Center for Materials Theory.
Minimum Education and Experience:
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics, material science, or a similar discipline by the start date of the position. Prior experience with first-principles calculations of materials is essential. Applicants must have strong research and communication skills.
