The Department of Physics and Astronomy/SAS at Rutgers University plans to hire two Gordon and Betty Moore Postdoctoral Scholars in the field of experimental condensed matter physics. This postdoctoral position is funded thought the Moore Foundation's Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Systems (EpiQS) initiative. The positions anticipated duration is for two years with a possible extension to third year upon mutual agreement. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics or material science by the start date of the position (September 2016) and demonstrate excellence in research and strong communication skills. The successful candidate is expected to work closely with Rutgers experiment and theory faculty engaged in strongly correlated quantum matter. The positions are geared towards synthesis of strongly correlated artificial quantum materials by laser MBE, characterization by advanced photoelectron spectroscopies including HREELS, XPS, RIXS etc. and close familiarity with transport and magnetic measurements.
