Bethe/KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Physics at Cornell’s Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics

Cornell University’s Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics is solicitng applications for the Bethe/KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship.

This prize fellowship will provide an outstanding theoretical physicist the opportunity to work with theorists and experimentalists in Cornell's physics department. Our group ( has broad interests in hard and soft condensed matter physics, including: cold atom physics, biophysics, statistical physics, hydrodynamics, electronic structure theory, materials science, strongly correlated electrons, nanoscience, computational physics and superconductivity. We also have growing efforts incorporating machine learning into studies of condensed matter physics.

We actively encourage applications from diverse and historically underrepresented candidates.

Applicants should submit a CV, publication list, and a 1-3 page research statement to: Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same website- one of which should be from the candidate's PhD adviser.

Applications received by November 3, 2017 will receive full consideration. Applications received by September 22, 2017 may also be considered for the Cornell University Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
