Postdoctoral position in quantum matter theory
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 46.000 students, 7.300 employees and a turnover of SEK 7.3 billion.
The research conducted at the Department of Physics and Astronomy encompasses a wide range of physics topics, distributed over ten divisions. The department is located in the Ångström laboratory and employs nearly 400 people, 125 of whom are doctoral students. It offers a broad physics curriculum to undergraduate and graduate students, participation in nationally and internationally leading projects for researchers, and opportunities for partnership with industry and various outreach activities.

We are looking for a postdoc in quantum matter theory for a project in multiband, topological, and odd-frequency superconductivity. The project is part of a larger effort focusing on new materials and mechanisms for odd-frequency superconductivity financed by the European Research Council (ERC). The overall goal is to discover new odd-frequency superconducting states and to find measurable signatures of this state. Examples of systems range from the iron-based superconductors to superconducting hybrid systems of topological materials, such as Weyl semimetals. The project involves theoretical work using advanced many body methods and can also, dependent on the aptitude of the candidate, involve large-scale numerical calculations. The postdoc candidate is expected to both carry out independent work and work in collaboration with other group members. The project will be carried out in the research group of Prof. Annica Black-Schaffer, currently consisting of nine PhD students and postdocs.
