Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics
The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory offers the Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship, a two year post-doctoral fellowship in condensed matter theory. The program is designed for Ph.D.s with a research interest in any of the condensed matter areas represented by the three sites of the NHMFL. Successful applicants are expected to demonstrate high aptitude for theoretical research as well as to draw on the close connection with the ongoing experimental program.
The Dirac Postdoctoral Fellowship Program will pay fellows $55,000 per year. Minority applicants are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should submit the following:
- A one page statement of prior research activities and future research interests that will be pursued at the NHMFL if granted a fellowship; candidates are especially encouraged to seek directions for collaborative research, which would involve joined work between two or more branches of the NHMFL.
- A one-page letter of support from a proposed fellowship sponsor at the NHMFL, who best represents the research in the area proposed.
- Curriculum vitae including publications and teaching experience.
- At least three letters of reference in support of the application. (Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts will be required from successful applicants to whom offers are extended).
Application packets should be received no later than January 15, 2013. The appointments will commence on or about Sep. 1, 2013. All application packets should be submitted, preferably by email in PDF electronic format to:
