Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Center for Quantum Materials invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in theoretical condensed matter physics. The positions include conducting a strong research program, and interacting with colleagues and visitors at Nordita and elsewhere in the Nordic countries.

Strong candidates in the areas of correlated electrons, superconductivity, magnetism and nonequilibrium physics of Dirac materials will be considered. The salary follows the salaries for postdocs at KTH. The appointment is for two years, starting in November, 2015, or some other date to be agreed upon.

Last date: 30 June, 2015

How to apply: Applications should be submitted via e-mail to with the subject line: ”PD June 2015”. Applications should contain a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, and a statement of research interests including future research plans not to exceed two pages.

Additionally, candidates must arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address. Further information can be given by: Prof. Alexander Balatsky, e-mail: Asst. Prof. David Abergel, e-mail: Nordita is jointly hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University.

Research: Nordita covers a broad range of theoretical physics including astrophysics, biophysics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods.
