Dear Colleagues,
a postdoctoral postion is available to work on:

Dynamical Magneto-electric properties in multiferroics

    1. Post-doctoral Position

The position will be mainly based at the Institut Néel in Grenoble with 
strong collaborations with several large scale facilities : SOLEIL, the 
french synchrotron facility close to Paris, and neutron sources like the 
Institut Laue Langevin, the european neutron facility in Grenoble, and 
the Laboratoire Léon Brillouin, the french neutron facility close to 
Paris. Our group at the Institut Néel has developed a large activity 
based on THz and neutron spectroscopy in condensed matter. We study the 
dynamical properties of strongly correlated systems where magnetism is 
present, in particular multiferoics where original magneto-electric 
excitations may be present in the THz range.

    2. Mission

The applicant will work within the frame of the DYMAGE funding project 
(Dynamical magneto-electric effects : probe and theory of hybrid 
excitations) and develop his/her own research program using THz/FIR 
spectroscopy and neutron diffraction. For that purpose, he/she will use 
the characterization tools available at the Institut Néel(X ray 
diffraction, magnetic and dielectric characterization, ...) to prepare 
experiments on large scale facilities. He/she will also participate to 
the development of the sample environment required for our studies at 
SOLEIL (lower temperatures, static electric and magnetic fields), a 
close collaboration between Institut Néel and SOLEIL.

    3. Qualifications & Experience

The applicant should hold a PhD degree in science related to the 
activities of our group (Physics in strongly correlated systems) with 
some experience in optical spectroscopy and/or neutron diffraction 

      4. General conditions

The offer concerns a Post-doctoral contract for a one year and a half. 
Possible extension

Applicants should contact

Dr. DE BRION(sophie.debrion at neel.cnrs.fr) or Dr. V. SIMONET 
(virginie.simonet at neel.cnrs.fr)
