Durham, NC, USA
The physics department at Duke University is seeking to make two postdoctoral research associate appointments in experimental condensed matter physics in the area of correlated electron systems. Candidates with experience in x-ray and neutron scattering techniques and/or material design/synthesis are particularly encouraged to apply.
Duke University is a private institution and is ranked 8 in the 2017 edition of Best Colleges in National Universities. The department of physics at Duke University has total of 45 faculty and 70-90 graduate students. Duke Physics has very strong interdisciplinary connections with other disciplines across the Research Triangle Area. Duke University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to providing employment opportunity without regard to an individual’s age, colour, disability, genetic information, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, or veteran status.
The successful candidates are expected to perform sample synthesis/single crystal growth and characterization measurements at Duke University. X-ray and neutron scattering experiments will be conducted at the national and international user facilities. Experiments under extreme sample environments will be conducted in collaboration with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
These positions are one-year appointments with the possibility of renewal for up to two additional years.
Questions regarding this position can be directed to Prof. Sara Haravifard.
Applicants for both positions should hold a PhD in condensed matter physics, solid state chemistry, or experimental materials science. Background in x-ray/neutron scattering, coding programs and computational modelling of physical systems, sample synthesis and crystal growth, extreme sample environments: cryogenics, high magnetic field and/or high pressure setups, is a plus.
