Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
We now have an opportunity for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to make a significant contribution to the ISIS research programme in nanoscale superconductivity within our nanomagnetism research group under the direction of Prof Sean Langridge and Dr Christy Kinane. The group has a 12 month position in the EPSRC funded project: Novel Coherent Electronic States in Artificial Ferromagnetic-Superconducting Hybrid Metamaterials. The project is part of a consortium consisting of the universities of St. Andrews, Leeds, Bath and Royal Holloway. This position is focused on exploiting our neutron (and complementary) technique data to provide a quantitative nanoscale understanding of triplet superconducting materials. In the project we have collected extensive neutron, muon and x-ray data. The Research Associate will work on the analysis of this data and contribute to the wider aspects contained within the project.
List of Duties / Work Programme / Responsibilities
A full-time vacancy exists as a post-doctoral researcher within the nanomagnetism research group which resides within the large scale structures group. The group has a 12 month position in the EPSRC funded project: Novel Coherent Electronic States in Artificial Ferromagnetic-Superconducting Hybrid Metamaterials. The project is part of a consortium consisting of St. Andrews, Leeds, Bath and Royal Holloway
In addition to the project the nanomagnetism group has strong collaborative research projects in a wide range of superconductivity and magnetism across the periodic table. The post is focused on exploiting neutron (and complementary) techniques to provide a quantitative nanoscale understanding of triplet superconducting materials. For the successful candidate, the position represents an excellent opportunity to develop both collaborative and personal scientific research programmes exploiting the capabilities of reflectometry (and complementary techniques) in the areas of nanoscale superconductivity and/or magnetism.
