Research Support - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Why Work at BNL? Brookhaven National Laboratory (www.bnl.gov) delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation's future. Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Lab is primarily supported by the U.S. Department;of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science. Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) operates and manages the Laboratory for DOE. BSA is a partnership between Battelle and The Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University.
Scientists in Brookhaven's Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Division (CMPMSD) study basic, theoretical and applied aspects of materials, their utilization, and their electronic, physical, mechanical, and chemical properties in relation to their structure. The Advanced Energy Materials group within the CMPMSD has a long tradition in making basic science discoveries while facilitating transition from basic science to advanced technologies.
The CMPMSD has a two year term appointment for a postdoctoral research associate to support and expand its research in quantum materials for quantum information sciences. The position will be in the Advanced Energy Materials group. However, it is important that the successful candidate be able to work independently, collaborate with a team of scientists, both theorists and experimentalists, within the group and the CMPMSD.
PhD in Condensed Matter Physics, Solid State Chemistry, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, or related discipline.
Demonstrated experience in quantum electronic materials' design, synthesis, and characterizations.
Good written and oral communication skills.
Ability to to work both independently and as part of a team.
A good understanding of the physics of quantum and topological materials/system.
Ability in designing and fabricating micro- to nano-scaled electronic devices, including electronic gating.
Expertise in transport property characterization of quantum materials, including the use of Quantum Design's PPMS.
Demonstrated record of publications in high-impact journals related to quantum materials.
Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Expertise in thin film fabrication.
Knowledge of application of topological physics to quantum information science.
Experience in high pressure experiments.
Experience in single crystal growth.
BNL policy requires that research associate appointments be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years.

About Brookhaven National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and managed by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
