The research projects that will be pursued include explorations of transition metal oxides, silicides, germanides, gallides, etc. by way of magnetization, carrier transport, specific heat, magnetic force microscopy, as well as elastic and inelastic neutron scattering. Posdocs will be intimately involved in the synthesis of polycrystalline and crystalline materials for exploration. In addition, we expect that the postdoc will be responsible for assisting in the training of graduate students in experimental techniques and analysis as an integral part of the research program. We are confident that this will be a positive research experience for a talented scientist and that participation in our program will lead to opportunities for the postdoc to advance their career.
The experimental Condensed Matter Physics group at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, has immediate openings for several postdoctoral Research Associates. These positions are supported by grants from the US Department of Energy and the State of Louisiana Board of Regents for novel magnetic and superconducting materials development. We seek candidates with experience in one or more of the following: single crystal growth, crystal and magnetic structural investigations employing neutron and X-ray scattering, and low temperature measurements such as charge transport, magnetometry, magnetic force microscopy, and specific heat. A portion of this work is done in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and travel to Oak Ridge is likely. We seek creative, self-motivated experimentalists with the ability to work both independently and as a part of a team, with an interest in pursuing challenging, interdisciplinary research.
We require that applicants either have completed their PhD program, or will be completing work in the next few months, and have experience in experimental condensed matter physics. Experience in neutron scattering and in single crystal synthesis is desired.
