Required Qualifications (as evidenced by an attached resume) :
Ph.D. or M.D.( or foreign equivalent) in hand by September 2021.
Experience in cryogenics or scanning probe microscopy, and the field of condensed matter. At least one first-author paper accepted for publication or published in a peer-reviewed journal by the time of application.
Brief Description of Duties: The Postdoctoral Associate will assist the Principal Investigator in the department of Physics & Astronomy. The candidate will be responsible for developing and managing a high-throughput scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscope (s-SNOM) that works in at cryogenic environment. This position also requires the ability to work in a highly collaborative environment with team members having a broad range of scientific and technical backgrounds and levels of experience. In addition, this position will involve training and management of undergraduate or graduate students, development of new proposals, and day-to-day management of scientific collaborations. The researcher will be encouraged to lead independent projects resulting in high impact publications, present at conferences and workshops. Perform research in experimental condensed matter physics in collaboration with the PI. In particular, the incumbent will be expected to participate in the building of a cryogenic s-SNOM and investigate the low temperature properties of chiral magnetic materials, strongly correlated electron systems, and two-dimensional materials using s-SNOM. The incumbent is expected to be familiar with the main features of the next generation of closed-cycle or continuous flow optical cryostat and scanning probes.
