Job description:

Reference No. NP 2019/1The Department High Field Magnetis looking for Postdoctoral scientist (f/m/d) (physics or chemistry) for scattering experiments at high magnetic fields TasksWe invite applications for a two year postdoctoral position in the area of experimental condensed matter physics. The position is to use primarily the experimental techniques of X-ray and neutron scattering to explore the phenomena of correlated electron systems such as quantum and frustrated magnets, superconductors and multiferroic materials at high magnetic fields. X-ray and neutron experiments will take place both in-house and at external sources, and bulk properties measurements can be performed in-house as complementary techniques.

The candidate will form part of the team operating the EXED instrument where neutron diffraction, SANS and spectroscopy can be performed up to continuous fields of 26T and down to temp­eratures of 0.5 K. He or she should support external users of this facility as well as perform own experiments. He or she will also join the team setting up pulsed high magnetic field measurements in combination with resonant X-ray scattering techniques at BESSYII. The goal here is to investigate magnetic phenomena in modern materials under conditions of high magnetic fields and to make this facility available to external users. A significant part of the postdoc time is available for own research and it is expected that the candidate will have strong scientific interests and will also develop collaborations with colleagues both inside and outside HZB.RequirementsApplicants should have or be close to finishing a PhD in physics or chemistry. Experience in X-ray and/or neutron scattering techniques is important, experience in high magnetic fields is useful.
Please enclose with your application the following documents: Motivation letter, CV and the contact details of at least two academic references. Further Information Prof. Bella Lake+49 30 Closing Date: 26.02.2019 apply
