Bethe/Wilkins/KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship - Theory

The 2022 application cycle for the Bethe/Wilkins KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship for Theoretical Physics is not yet open. We will update this space with due date information once it becomes available.

Cornell University's Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics is soliciting applications for the Bethe/Wilkins/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, quantum information, machine learning, computational physics and superconductivity. We actively encourage applications from diverse and historically underrepresented candidates.

This position is supported in part by the Hans Bethe Postdoctoral Fellowship, the John Wilkins Postdoctoral Fellowship, and by the Kavli Institute at Cornell.

We actively encourage applications from diverse and historically underrepresented candidates. Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations.
