Yale Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Condensed Matter Theory group at Yale University seeks outstanding applicants for a Yale Physics Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship endowed by Yale University. Preference will be given to applicants with expertise in quantum aspects of condensed matter theory and research interests in the general areas of electron correlations, low-dimensional systems, topological phases of matter, disorder, cold atomic gases, and physics of quantum information. The postdoctoral scholar is encouraged to work independently or in collaboration with faculty members (Meng Cheng, Steve Girvin, Leonid Glazman, Nicholas Read and Ramamurti Shankar). Candidates should forward their CV with publication list and outline of research interests, and arrange for three recommendation letters. Candidates may also include up to four selected preprints and reprints. Electronic submission (in PDF format) of applications and supporting materials is strongly preferred. Please submit all materials, including recommendation letters, to Interfolio. Early applications are strongly encouraged.
