Prof. Nikolic is a condensed matter theorist interested in the physics of strongly correlated electrons in solid-state materials and ultra-cold atoms. His work is focused on trying to understand the unconventional phases and phase transitions of many-body quantum systems, especially the universal phenomena which do not depend on microscopic details and hence occur in a variety of different physical environments. The subjects of his research are high-temperature superconductors (cuprates and iron-based), topological insulators, quantum Hall effect, ultra-cold atoms in the unitarity regime, and frustrated quantum magnets.
A full-time research assistant position is open to a graduate student seeking a physics Ph.D.
Please, contact Prof. Nikolic for more information.
