ICMT Postdoctoral Search 2016-2017

Applications are invited to fill several postdoctoral positions in condensed matter theory at the ICMT, starting in August 2016, (see FAQ). Applications for these positions are encouraged from outstanding individuals, regardless of specialty.

Postdoctoral fellowships provide especially wide latitude in choosing research activities, and fellows are encouraged to be broadly engaged with condensed matter research activities at Illinois.

Departmental postdoctoral positions are typically more closely tied to a specific supporting projects. However, all Illinois postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to take advantage of the extensive opportunities provided to develop breadth through wide-ranging collaborations. Condensed matter theory faculty at Illinois interact with other theorists at Illinois, with the superb and large experimental condensed matter group, including members of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory, and have access to unparalleled facilities for computation through the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, including the new Blue Waters facility. They also interact with biologists elsewhere on campus, including through the University's Institute for Genomic Biology.

The University of Illinois is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

CPLC Summer School 2017

The mission of the Center for the Physics of Living Cells at the University of Illinois is to create a quantitative, predictive, and physically-based description of living systems.

This summer school is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in physics, biophysics, chemical and life sciences, and engineering who seek to expand their research skills into these areas. The workshop will comprise lectures and hands-on training in specific topics and tools.

This summer school is only open to researchers at institutions other than the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
