Two Posdoc positions: Investigation of Multiferroic Materials

Job description
We are looking for two motivated Research Associates to be based at the 
University of New South Wales in Sydney (A/Prof C. Ulrich) and in 
Canberra (Dr. A.M. Mulders) in conjunction with the new research reactor 
OPAL at ANSTO, the Bragg Institute in Sydney (Dr. G. Mclntyre). The aim 
of the project is the preparation and investigation of novel 
multiferroic materials. The experimental techniques used will be various 
neutron scattering techniques, elastic as well as inelastic, synchrotron 
techniques, and Raman light scattering. The project involves also sample 
preparation and characterization. Neutron scattering experiments will be 
mainly carried out at the OPAL research reactor in Sydney.

Collaborate with an international team of scientists and perform state 
of the art experimental research at the Bragg Institute and other 
science facilities:

• Neutron diffraction to investigate structural and magnetic properties.
• lnelastic neutron scattering for the investigation of fundamental 
• Use of complementary experimental methods (including magnetometry, 
X-ray synchrotron methods, and Raman light scattering).
• Sample growth and characterization will be an essential part of the 
research program.
• Data analysis, interpretation and publication of the experimental results.

Your prolile
• We are looking for candidates with PhD in Science and strong 
backgrounds in condensed matter physics. Experience as a user of large 
scale research facilities like neutron sources or synchrotrons, in Raman 
light scattering, or in crystal growth would be an advantage.
• Interested in travel overseas for experiments, conferences or other 
collaborative efforts.
• Ability to work in an international team.

Salary Level A: $72k - $76k per year, plus superannuation and leave loading.
This is a full time position for a period of 2+1 years.
