Introduction

A Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2 years is available at the Department for Neutron Materials Characterization in connection with the project “Reflectivity and Interface Diffraction Studies of Emergent thin-film Magnetoelectrics (RIDSEM)”. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway, and is a collaboration between the University of Oslo and IFE. It focuses on the synthesis, structural and magnetic characterization of magnetoelectric multilayer systems.

Description of Institution

The Department for Neutron Materials Characterization at IFE has as main goal to utilize the neutron beams from the JEEP II nuclear reactor at Kjeller and is responsible for the construction and operation of the national infrastructure NcNeutron –the Norwegian Center for Neutron Research. NcNeutron is currently upgrading several of its instruments. In addition, a new neutron reflectometer is currently under construction and will be operational by the end of 2020.

Job description

Job description

  • Perform reflectivity experiments at large-scale synchrotron X-ray and neutron facilities such as SNBL, ESRF, SLS, Diamond, ISIS, ILL, NIST and FRM-II and carry out the relevant data analysis.
  • Contribute to competence development in neutron reflectometry through publications in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Be actively involved in the construction of the new neutron reflectometer at IFE.
  • Attend joint beamtimes on surface and interface diffraction in close collaboration with the second postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oslo.

We offer

  • IFE strives to offer its employees a positive and social work environment. The successful candidate will work in a relevant and research-intensive environment with a focus on innovation.
  • Wages in accordance with agreement.
  • Social benefits including pension, life insurance and accident insurance

Requested Profile

Qualifications

Candidates are expected to have a PhD or similar in physics, chemistry, materials science or a closely related field. A strong background in solid state physics, chemistry and magnetism is required, preferably with emphasis on thin-film magnetism. Priority will be given to applicants who possess previous experience in reflectometry, the use of polarized neutrons and surface/interface diffraction.

Personal qualities

  • The evaluation of candidates will be based on scientific qualifications and ability to communicate efficiently. Good knowledge of the English language is essential.
  • We use background checks as a part of our recruitment process
