Introduction

The Department of Physics, Institute of Solid State Physics, Junior Professorship in Neutron Spectroscopy of Condensed Matter offers within the framework of a DFG project a fixed-term position for a Postdoc in Experimental Solid State Physics (E 13 TV-L) related to the experimental investigation of magnetically hidden order, multipolar ordering phenomena and magnetic excitations in Ce-based heavy-fermion compounds by means of elastic and inelastic neutron scattering. The position starts at the earliest possible date and is initially limited to 3 years. The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (WissZeitVG).

Job description

The successful candidate will perform neutron scattering experiments at several world-leading neutron sources with the aim of understanding the complex magnetic ordering phenomena and low-energy spin dynamics in Ce-based heavy-fermion compounds. These experiments require the use of cold-neutron triple-axis and time-of-flight spectrometers, along with conventional single-crystal diffraction and diffuse scattering instruments using both non-polarized and polarized neutrons. The project will also require intense interactions with theorists and other experimental research groups and is supposed to coordinate the efforts in reaching a systematic description of magnetic excitation spectra in itinerant f-electron systems exhibiting hidden-order phases.

Requested Profile

PhD degree in condensed matter physics, materials science, or equivalent; strong publication record; significant experience performing experimental research at large-scale facilities using scattering methods (neutron or x-ray scattering); motivation to perform independent research and the willingness to coordinate the scientific efforts within the project with little external supervision; ability to think innovatively and to work as an active member of a team; perfect command of English for publishing high-quality research articles and successful communication with international collaboration partners.
