Lemont, Illinois, USA
There is an opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the Neutron & X-ray Scattering group of the Materials Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory, to work on the study of magnetic films and heterostructures.
The Neutron and X-ray Scattering program uses a variety of scattering techniques to investigate the structure and dynamics of complex disorder in crystalline materials that drives many unusual phenomena of interest for future energy applications.
The emphasis of the work will be on studying interactions at interfaces of complex oxide heterostructures. The primary research tool for studying these systems will be neutron scattering, particularly polarized neutron reflectometry. This will be complemented by x-ray techniques, such as X-ray magnetic dichroism, and in-house laboratory probes.
The ideal candidate will have a background in experimental magnetic films basic research, such as a background in magnetism and film characterization by magnetometry, the use of laboratory magnetic fields, cryogenics, computer data analysis and modeling, structural characterizations and structure properties relationships. Independently pursuing research ideas, a track record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and making conference presentations are all requirements.
