Postdoctoral Fellowships in Theoretical Physics

position expired
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Rice University is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of W. M. Keck Postdoctoral Fellowships. The W. M. Keck Program in Quantum Materials at Rice is an initiative in which strongly correlated condensed matter is realized using ultracold atoms in optical lattices, carbon nanotubes, single-molecule transistors, two-dimensional electron gases, or other tunable systems. The experimental component is complemented by the study of theoretical models of magnetism and strong correlations. More information, including a listing of the involved faculty, can be found at the program website:; candidates who have previously applied to any of the individual groups need not to reapply. Relevant experience in experimental or theoretical condensed matter or atomic physics is required. The Fellowships consist of an annual salary of $55,000 and an annual allowance of $5,000 for research-related expenses. Candidates should submit their curriculum vitae and a brief statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to, with subject line "Keck Search", or to Ms. Barbara Braun, Department of Physics and Astronomy, MS 61, Rice University, 6100 Main Street, Houston, TX 77005. Rice University is an EO/AA employer.
