2021 Bethe/KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship

Deadline: September 24, 2021

Cornell University’s Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics is soliciting applications for the Bethe/Wilkins/KIC Theoretical 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, nanoscience, computational physics and superconductivity. We actively encourage applications from diverse and historically underrepresented candidates.

Please submit a CV, publication list, and a 1-3 page research statement to Academic Jobs Online. Applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference uploaded to their application, one of which should be from the candidate’s PhD adviser. Application review begins September 24, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled. Applications received by September 24, 2021 may also be considered for sponsorship for the Klarman Fellowship.

Bethe/Wilkins/KIC Fellows become lifetime members of the Society of Cornell Fellows – an organization of fellows who received named, prestigious, and competitively awarded postdoctoral fellowships at Cornell. This position is supported in part by the Hans Bethe Postdoctoral Fellowship, the John Wilkins Postdoctoral Fellowship, and by the Kavli Institute at Cornell.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. The College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will create a climate that attracts students and faculty of all races, nationalities, and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. Cornell University is a recognized EEO/AA employer and educator, valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
