Introduction

The Indiana University Center for the Exploration of Energy and Materials (CEEM), together with the Indiana University Physics Department, is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to develop neutron scattering techniques applied to quantum information and quantum materials. CEEM houses a small accelerator-based neutron source called the Low Energy Neutron Source (LENS) that focuses on the development of instrumentation such as neutron spin-echo techniques and neutron polarization filters as well as on the application of neutron scattering to a variety of scientific problems. LENS has strong partnerships with national and international neutron facilities (e.g. NCNR and SNS/HFIR in the U.S. and ISIS in the UK) and an international reputation for neutron scattering investigations and for building novel instrumentation.
The post-doctoral appointee will work on one or more projects including: the use of superconducting neutron Wollaston prisms to probe quantum entanglement in materials such as those which exhibit quantum spin liquid behavior; the development of novel RF neutron-spin-flippers using high temperature superconducting materials; and the development of a wide-angle neutron spin echo spectrometer, again using high Tc materials. Development of new instrumentation will require computer simulation using commercially available software such as MagNet© and COMSOL© and well as mechanical design, testing and neutron beam experiments at LENS and at national neutron facilities. The appointee will have the opportunity to spend extended time at the labs mentioned above in the course of these projects.

Job description

-Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent qualification in a field such as Physics, Chemistry or Engineering. Experience with neutron or synchrotron x-ray experiments and/or the development of associated instrumentation is an advantage but not a necessity.
-Experience in designing, building and using novel instrumentation for science experiments will be an advantage.
-The position is available immediately. The initial Postdoctoral Associate appointment will be for 1 year, with the expectation for renewal for an additional 2 years, contingent on funding.
-Indiana University is an equal employment and affirmative action employer and a provider of ADA services. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, ethnicity, color, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or identity, national origin, disability status or protected veteran status.
-Applications for postdoctoral positions are accepted on a continuing basis, and starting dates can be adjusted to suit the candidates.

Introduction

In the framework of DFG-funded project “Spin dynamics in laterally patterned magnetic landscapes” we are looking for PhD candidate for investigation of magnetization dynamics in nanostructures with ferromagnetic/paramagnetic (FM/PM) interfaces.

Job description

The tasks of PhD student will include:
• Thin film fabrication using magnetron sputtering, nanostructuring with electron beam lithography and ion irradiation;
• Magnetic characterization using magnetometry, magnetic microscopy imaging, micromagnetic simulations;
• Ferromagnetic resonance study of thin film bilayers and laterally patterned magnetic landscapes.

The three-year research program is to be realized in collaboration with the University of Augsburg (Germany) and the Technical Federal University Santa Maria (Chile). We aim to understand the complex effect of structural disorder-induced magnetization patterns on the dynamic magnetic properties of embedded nanostructures with periodical FM/PM interfaces, addressing multi-magnon scattering, spin pumping at magnetic interfaces as well as various magnonic effects.

Duration of contract: 3 years
Salary: equivalent to 0.75 x TVöD E13 (about 4125 € gros per month)
Start of position: as soon as candidate is found

Requested Profile

Master or equivalent degree in Physics with magnetism background is required. Experience in thin film deposition, fabrication of nanostructures as well as knowledge about ferromagnetic resonance technique and magnetization dynamics in nanostructures are advantageous (but not obligatory).

Introduction

We are looking to recruit as soon as possible a highly motivated

Postdoc in Physics or Chemistry for the development of advanced sample environment equipment

Description of Institution

The Jülich Centre for Neutron Science (JCNS) operates at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz-Zentrum (MLZ) in Garching near Munich a suite of high performance neutron scattering instruments. It provides access to these instruments for scientists from universities and research institutions in Germany and throughout the world. Within the user program more than 1000 scientists visit the MLZ every year to perform experiments in the physical, chemical, biological and materials sciences. In addition, JCNS is actively pursuing a research program in the field of soft matter science and condensed matter physics and energy research.

Job description

Design, develop and operate sample environment equipment to perform pressure and temperature jumps

Contribute to the improvement of existing equipment with focus on time resolved measurements on SANS/VSANS and QENS

Conduct and disseminate world-class research via publications and conference presentations in the field of soft matter and biophysics, in close cooperation with the institute “Neutron Scattering and Soft Matter” (JCNS-1) in Jülich and the Soft Matter Physics Group of the Technical University of Munich

Represent and actively work on increasing the user base at MLZ

Our offer:
Exciting working environment on an attractive research campus, ideally situated close to the city of Munich

The position represents an excellent opportunity to carry out research in soft matter and biophysics using neutron scattering in a multidisciplinary team at MLZ

Promoting professional development through participation in national and international conferences and through various training programs

A comprehensive further training programme

Flexible working hours and various opportunities to reconcile work and private life

Limited for 2 years with possible longer-term prospects

Full-time position with the option of slightly reduced working hours

Salary and social benefits in conformity with the provisions of the Collective Agreement for the Civil Service (TVöD)

Requested Profile

A PhD degree in Physics, Chemistry, Biophysics or a related discipline

A strong background in experimental soft matter and biophysics with focus on structure examination

Knowledge in neutron scattering research preferably real-time SANS, rheo-SANS, or bio-SANS would be a distinct advantage

Very good command of written and spoken English

Initiative character, creativity, good interpersonal, communication and presentation skills, result orientation and analytical skills
