About the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and EPiQS Initiative
The Moore Foundation believes in bold ideas that create enduring impact in the areas of science, environmental conservation and patient care. Visit Moore.org or follow @MooreFound. The foundationâ€™s $185-million EPiQS initiative promotes discovery-driven research in the field of quantum materials (http://www.moore.org/programs/science/emergent-phenomena-in-quantum-systems). Through a variety of funding approaches, EPiQS aims to enable a community of leading experimentalists, materials synthesis experts and theorists to maximize their potential to explore, discover and understand emergent behavior of complex quantum matter.
The Moore Postdoctoral Scholars in Theory of Quantum Materials program is an integral part of EPiQS and supports theoretical physicists of outstanding promise at an early stage of their careers. The Moore Postdoctoral Scholars are provided with a significant independence in selection of their research directions within their departments and can acquire a breadth of expertise by working with multiple faculty members.
The Moore Foundation values diversity and encourages applications from individuals regardless of their age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, national origin, religion or disability.
