The Emergent Phenomena Group of the Center for Correlated Electron System (CCES), Institute for Basic Science (IBS), invites applications for postdoctoral research fellow. The Institute of Basic Science (http://www.ibs.re.kr/) is an ambitious new program by the South Korean government to foster the basic sciences in Korea. Prof. Je-Geun Park leads the Emergent Phenomena Group of IBS CCES (http://magnetism.snu.ac.kr). We at Prof Park’s group aim to pursue groundbreaking and fundamental researches in strongly correlated electron physics by taking advantage of state-of-the-art instruments and theoretical support.
The Emergent Phenomena Group led by Prof. Je-Geun Park is the 2nd group established within the IBS Center for Correlated Electron Systems. We focus on strongly correlated electron systems such as transition metal oxides and related materials, mostly in bulk form. Having these three teams working together allows our group to paint a complete picture of novel materials, studying their crystal and magnetic structure, physical properties and spin dynamics. Our ability to rapidly characterize and investigate the properties of new materials offers crucial feedback to improve the sample preparation, while having a dedicated Materials team ensures a steady supply of new and interesting systems for investigation. To do this, we are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments covering all areas of our research topics. Please see the relevant sections of our homepage for more information.
You will be part of research projects led by Professor Je-Geun Park and belong to Scattering Team. The projects at Prof. Park’s group aim to understand novel phases of strongly correlated electron systems. The Scattering Team uses inelastic neutron and X-ray scattering techniques to tackle several interesting problems such as magnon-phonon coupling, magnon breakdown, to name only a few. We also have extensive collaborations with two other teams: Materials Team and Van der Waals Team, at the group. Although each of three teams has their own specific goals but also collaborate on larger projects. Successful candidates are expected to have experience in at least one of the following areas: materials synthesis, bulk characterization, or neutron or x-ray scattering. Each postdoctoral position is a 2 year position and may be extended for an additional year
