Successful applicants will work in a dynamic interdisciplinary group to study the role of nanoscale fluctuations on the properties of strongly correlated electron, and related, materials. The goal is to combine complimentary techniques sensitive to local atomic and electronic structure of complex and nanostructured materials to characterize and understand the nature and role of nanoscale fluctuations in strongly correlated electron systems such as cuprate and iron based superconductors, manganites, charge density wave materials and so on. The position has particular emphasis on soft x-ray imaging of electronic texture. The team will include 6 groups in the Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science department at BNL that are world leaders in various techniques mentioned above.
Under the direction of John Hill, Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Department.
BNL policy requires that research associate appointments be made to individuals who have received their doctorate with in the past five years.
BNL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to the development of a diverse workforce.
Requires a Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry, or Materials Science. Candidates must have excellent written and oral communication skills, and be able to interact effectively with a diverse group of scientists, technical staff, and users.
Knowledge or technical experience with one or more of the scientific techniques involved in the project is highly desirable. These include soft x-ray spectroscopies and scattering, x-ray and neutron diffraction, and other related scattering methods, and x-ray imaging techniques. Experience using computers for data analysis and modeling. Experience building or maintaining lab equipment such as x-ray diffractometers, and working with UHV is desirable. Knowledge of basic computer programming or scripting is also advantageous.
