Postdoc Position in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics


A post doc position in the research group of Prof. Brian M. Andersen at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen is currently open for applications. The position is for 2 years, and is aimed at theoretical studies of magnetic and superconducting systems including cuprates, iron-based superconductors, and topological superconductors. It is expected that significant efforts will be centered on general interesting aspects of electron interactions, pairing, and novel disorder effects in multi-orbital systems. It is also expected that the post doc will participate in on-going collaborations with various experimental groups.  


The project will be funded by a post doc fellowship grant through the Danish Independent Research Council. The position will be part of a growing research environment at the condensed matter theory group at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Significant collaboration is expected to take place with other people including Prof. K. Flensberg, M. Rudner, J. Paaske, A. Kreisel, P. Kotetes, I. Eremin, P. J. Hirschfeld, and world-leading experimental groups specialized in e.g. quantum transport, STM, neutron and X-ray scattering. For further information on the theoretical condensed matter theory group at Copenhagen University, please see  


The applicant should have a PhD degree in physics, preferable with a strong condensed matter background and should ideally have experience with the theory of superconducting and/or magnetic systems.  


Further information on the Department is linked at Inquiries about the position can be made to Professor Brian M. Andersen.  

The position is open from 1 March 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.  


The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
