The Max Planck-UBC-UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials is a collaborative venture between the Max Planck Society (Germany), the University of British Columbia (Canada), and the University of Tokyo (Japan) featuring internationally leading scientists and extensive infrastructure for research in quantum materials. This partnership supports collaborative projects, scholarly exchanges, annual workshops, and joint schools for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
The Center is now actively recruiting Postdoctoral Research Fellows for 2-3 years. The starting date is flexible. For a list of current projects see
Topic areas include:
- Metal-oxide interfaces and heterostructures
- Cuprates and Ruthenates
- Spin liquides and strong spin-orbit coupling
- Topological phenomena in solids
- Electronic properties of graphene-adatom systems
- Dynamical Control and Nano-optics of Electron Systems
Successful applicants will be outstanding and highly motivated scientists with a strong background in physics or chemistry. Strong publications on quantum materials and enthusiasm for collaborative research are expected.
Interested candidates should send their complete application to the following email address
The application must contain a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and a research statement. In addition, candidates should arrange for two reference letters to be sent directly to the same address.
Questions concerning the application procedure can be addressed to
Prof. Dirk Manske, Scientific Coordinator
The deadline for applications is Friday, April 30th, 2021.
The Max Planck-UBC-UTokyo Center for Quantum Materials is committed to employing more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply. The Center seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented, and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
