The LNS and LQM jointly operate the triple-axis spectrometers TASP at SINQ and are opening a position for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neutron Spectroscopy.
The Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging (LNS) operates the neutron scattering and imaging instruments at the Swiss Spallation Neutron Source SINQ. The members of the LNS conduct a strong in-house research program with special emphases on strongly correlated electron systems, magnetism, superconductivity, material science and soft condensed matter. The Laboratory for Quantum Magnetism (LQM) at EPF Lausanne is specialized in studies of emergent phenomena in quantum magnets and novel electronic materials.
You will be part of an ambitious research program on quantum magnetisms and unconventional superconductivity carried out by LNS and LQM, and be able to pursue your own, independent projects in these fields. You will support the external user program on the triple-axis spectrometer TASP at SINQ and the diverse research activities of LQM at PSI.
The successful candidate holds a PhD in experimental physics or chemistry and has experience in neutron scattering studies of frustrated/quantum magnets or strongly correlated electron systems. Experience in neutron spectroscopy is mandatory. You have good English and communication skills, and enjoy working in a team-oriented interdisciplinary environment
