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.
The Advanced Electron Microscopy and Nanostructured Materials Group in CMPMS, BNL, is seeking postdoctoral research associate for Cryogenic electron microscopy study of quantum materials.
The goal of the research is to explore, understand, and control the novel physical mechanisms of quantum materials, including charge-spin-lattice interactions at a wide range of temperatures, especially at low temperatures where intriguing materials behavior emerges. The research will focus on quantum materials exhibiting insulator-metal-transition, spin-torque-oscillator, or topological properties for novel forms of information storage and manipulation.
Position Description The position will provide an exceptional opportunity for research in quantum materials and devices for one or two of the following areas: strongly correlated electron systems, multiferroics, topological materials, skyrmions, and superconductors, at the forefront of electron microscopy with extraordinary spatial and temporal resolutions to understand structure-property relationship. Planned experiments with quantitative data analyses include, but not limited to, low temperature atomic imaging, high energy-resolution energy-loss spectroscopy, nanoprobe 4D scanning diffraction, in-situ electromagnetic biasing, and ultrafast electron microscopy. The work will be conducted under the direction of Dr. Yimei Zhu. Close collaborations with leading theoretical and experimental groups at BNL are an essential ingredient of the research.
PhD. in Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Science or closely related fields.
Solid background in electron microscopy and structural characterization.
Experience in aberration corrected electron microscopy and monochromated electron energy-loss-spectroscopy.
Ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopy
Effective communication skills.
Other Information: 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.
