Master & PhD positions available


University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada


Master and PhD positions in Theoretical Quantum/Condensed Matter Physics


Positions for graduate students are available. A knowledge of quantum mechanics and solid state theory is required, a knowledge of the foundations of many-body theory desirable. If you are interested please contact me directly. An overview of the recent research activities in my group is available here. I expect that your application includes a document outlining your specific motivation to do research in my group and explaining in which way your previous studies have prepared you for this task.

For foreign students also a language proficiency test (see Faculty of Graduate Studies) is required. It is also highly recommended that you take the GRE physics test and submit the score with your application.
