ICMT Moore Postdoctoral Search 2019-2020

Applications are invited to fill several Moore postdoctoral positions in condensed matter theory at the ICMT, starting in August 2020, (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.
