*Postdoc position:

**Investigation of Transition Metal Oxide Superlattices by Polarized 
Neutron Scattering Techniques*

at the *University of New South Wales and ANSTO* in Sydney, Australia

We are looking for a motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow to be based 
at the Bragg Institute in Sydney (Dr. F. Klose) and at the University of 
New South Wales in Sydney (A/Prof. C. Ulrich). The aim of the project is 
the study of transition metal oxide superlattices like unconventional 
superconductors or multiferroic materials by polarized neutron 
reflectometry. Experiments will be mainly carried out at the new 
reflectometer, Platypus at the OPAL research reactor in Sydney. The 
research program is related to thin magnetic films for applications in 
future spin electronics or novel sensor devices.

Collaborate with an international team of scientists and perform state 
of the art experimental research at the Bragg Institute and other 
science facilities:
- Neutron reflectometry and diffraction to investigate structural and 
magnetic properties of nanoscale thin films.
- Use of complementary structural and magnetic methods (including 
magnetometry and X-ray/synchrotron methods).

Your profile
We are looking for a candidate with strong background in condensed 
matter physics. Experience as a user of large scale research facilities 
like neutron sources or synchrotron rings would be an advantage.

This work is part of a collaboration between the University of New South 
Wales (Sydney) and The Bragg Institute at ANSTO (Sydney). The position 
will be based at the Bragg Institute, visiting the UNSW when required 
for further experiments.

Salary Level A: $A71,250 to A$76,209 per year, plus 9% employer 
superannuation plus leave loading.
