The Institute for Quantum Phenomena in Novel Materials at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin Germany, is looking for a PhD Student to investigate topological and quantum magnets. The project will focus on frustrated and low dimensional magnetism where current research has revealed exotic phases such as classical and quantum spin ice, spin liquids, new forms of topological order and fractional excitations. These phenomena will be investigated using primarily the experimental techniques of neutron scattering along with X-ray scattering, materials synthesis and characterization. Pressure and magnetic field will be used to tune the ground states and provide additional insight, while deeper understanding will also be gained by performing computer simulations and by collaboration with theorists.

For Further information contact Prof Bella Lake bella.lake at helmholtz-berlin.de<mailto:bella.lake at helmholtz-berlin.de>

The position is for 3 years and the student will be a member of the graduate school ‘Future Information Technologies’. Applicants should have or be close to finishing a master or diploma degree in physics and should have taken courses in condensed matter physics. The deadline is 8th February 2017. To apply please upload your motivation letter, CV and the contact details of at least two academic references at the website:
