Postdoctoral Research Associate
Low Temperature Condensed Matter Physics
The Low Temperature Condensed Matter Physics Group led by Professors V. F. Mitrovic and J. M. Valles in the Department of Physics at Brown University is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to perform experimental research in the area of ultra low temperature transport and magnetic resonance techniques. The objectives are to develop novel ways to manipulate spin in topological materials.
The researcher will work on implementing a novel technique for spin manipulation in topological materials and devices based on application of radio frequency (rf) excitations. The project involves overseeing of He recovery system installation, running of the dilution refrigerator, development of a special cold finger to allow for rf excitations, electron transport measurement, possible device fabrication, and computer modeling and simulation. The candidate must have a PhD degree in physics and an excellent record in scientific publication and academic performance. The candidate should have strong research experience in low temperature physics, especially, dilution refrigeration techniques.
Candidates with excellent technical skills, communication and writing skills and a strong motivation in R&D are encouraged to apply. The position is available immediately, with initial appointment for one year and possibility of extension. Application materials including a curriculum vita, a statement of past research, and three letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically to http://apply.interfolio.com/40372. Applications received by April 1, 2017 will receive full consideration.
