Postdocs at the University of Chicago
T. Witten, April 9, 2009
Applications are invited for a postdoc to work under the guidance of Leo Kadanoff, and/or Wendy Zhang, and/or Margaret Gardel, and/or Thomas Witten, and/or Gene F. Mazenko, and/or Peter Constantin and/or Todd Dupont, and/or Ka Yee Christina Lee,and/or Paul Wiegmann,and/or Ilya Gruzberg, and/or Sidney Nagel.
These professors, working at the James Franck Institute of the University of Chicago, expect to appoint one or more postdocs probably beginning in Autumn, 2009. We usually find that postdocs are most productive if they can interact broadly within our institute, the departments of the Physical Sciences Division, our Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, and our University.
The research areas of this group include:
The appointment might include teaching in the Museum Presentation in Science program or the Mathematics Department. Our postdocs generally share in the task of managing our seminars.
There is more information about current research at the University
Chicago at the web sites of the James
Franck Institute, the Physics
Department, the Materials
Science and Engineering Center, Chemistry Department and the
