Open Faculty Position in Experimental Quantum Condensed Matter Physics

The University of Maryland Department of Physics invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor in Experimental Quantum Condensed Matter Physics. We seek candidates with exceptional promise of major future achievements who will lead innovative research efforts in fields broadly aligned with or complementing our existing strengths and interests, including candidates with expertise in quantum materials synthesis and exploration, measurement and characterization techniques, and new quantum-based devices. Outstanding candidates in all fields of experimental quantum condensed matter physics will be considered, including senior level positions. Please see more details at

FQM 2023 Winter School Just Announced!

QMC is hosting its 6th annual Fundamentals of Quantum Materials Winter School, to be held at the University of Maryland, January 16-20, 2023.  This school, (sponsored by the Gordon & Betty Moore Foundation, ICAM, NSF and NIST), is aimed at providing fundamental training to our current and future generations of Quantum Materials scientists in synthesis and characterization techniques.  It will bring together senior and junior scientists to address topics at the forefront of current research into quantum materials, while also providing pedagogical background and practical training for junior scientists.  With an interdisciplinary and diverse crowd, including physicists, chemists, and materials scientists, participants will gain basic functional knowledge of how to plan and carry out synthesis relevant to the study of quantum materials and will have a unique opportunity to interact with some of the top researchers in the field while networking with fellow peers.  This year's school is focused on Moire Heterostructures, and will include a combination of  fundamental materials synthesis instruction as well as lectures on experimental techniques and practices from an impressive list of invited speakers. The school will be followed by a one-day Workshop (Friday, Jan. 20, 2023) focused on a current topic in quantum materials research, covering both experimental and theoretical work presented by a list of prominent scientists in the field. School students are expected to attend both events.  Applications can be submitted via web at


QMC Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate researchers Emerson Hemley, Winslow Weiss and Yash Anand, as well as high school student Sarah Celaya, have been actively involved in quantum materials research in QMC. Congratulations to Winslow who is off to graduate school at Stanford, and to Sarah who off to Berkeley for undergraduate studies!
