Post Doctoral Position
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Condensed Matter and Thermal Physics Group
Sponsors: Wei Bao and Robert Heffner
A postdoctoral position in solid state physics is available at Los Alamos
beginning immediately (July 1999). The position involves the study of
novel magnetic, superconducting and metal-insulator transitions in a variety
of new materials. The primary tool of investigation is neutron scattering,
with a secondary emphasis on muon spin relaxation. The systems under
investigation include transition metal oxides exhibiting novel phase
transitions, high-temperature superconductors, heavy fermion and non-Fermi
liquid compounds, particularly near a quantum critical point.
We are searching for a person with a strong background in condensed matter
physics. Previous experience in neutron scattering and/or magnetic
as well as a willingness to spend some time developing and using novel
environment capabilities (pressure and high magnetic fields), is very
Ability to work creatively and independently, but within a team environment,
is also important. The neutron scattering will be carried out at Los
but also at other domestic and international sources, as appropriate.
the work involves collaborations with several outstanding institutions
LANL and will be carried out in close collaboration with the Los Alamos
condensed matter materials'synthesis and theory groups, the job offers
excellent opportunities for professional growth.
Los Alamos provides a very stimulating atmosphere in an active and
collaborative group of solid state experimentalists and theorists. The
position is normally for a minimum of two years, renewable for a third year.
U. S. citizenship is not required.
