Vacancies

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Quantum Materials Synthesis and Crystal Growth

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Quantum Materials Synthesis and Crystal Growth as part of our research programme to investigate emergent properties of quantum condensed matter systems in the presence of strong electron correlations and spin-orbit couplings funded by an ERC grant. Our group has a strong research track record in the discovery and exploration of novel forms of electronic order and dynamics, and quantum phase transitions in quantum magnetic materials. The successful candidate will be an ambitious scientist keen to work on challenging research projects on single crystal growth of novel frustrated quantum magnets, topological magnetic materials and other correlated electron materials with strong spin-orbit interactions.

The role will involve materials preparation and single crystal growth, performing structural and physical properties measurements, analysing, understanding and presenting the results.

The application deadline is 12.00 midday on Monday 12 November 2018. For more details about the post and how to apply see this link
