Job Title> Postdoctoral Researchers for Neutron Scattering Studies on Quantum Magnets

Employer & Location> Institute for Basic Science - Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics, SungKyunKwan University, Suwon, Korea

Introduction> The Quantum Magnetism (QM) group at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) - Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics (CINAP) in Korea seeks motivated post-doctoral researchers. We aim to make a meaningful discovery in condensed matter physics by investigating novel quantum phenomena of quantum magnetism using neutron scattering techniques.

We seek those who are specialised in the following areas. 1) Neutron scattering measurements: neutron diffraction and inelastic neutron scattering. 2) The data analysis using relevant software and computation tools. - A wide range of research projects are currently available. - Experiments will be mainly conducted at ISIS in the UK and possibly other neutron facilities such as ORNL, HANARO in Korea, and in other facilities.

Description of Institution> The Institute of Basic Science ( is ambitiously established by the Korean government to boost fundamental research in basic science, recently featured by the journal Nature ( The YSF team is part of the Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics (CINAP) ( located at SungKyunKwan University (SKKU: one of the top research-oriented universities in Korea), whose research focuses on low-dimensional quantum material.

The QM group works independently to solve the latest quantum magnetism problems and could also collaborate with other groups at the Center. Our position represents an excellent opportunity to examine the quantum matter in a stimulating multidisciplinary environment at IBS-CINAP with a wide range of cutting-edge research infrastructure by collaborating with theorists.

Job description> 1) Perform neutron scattering measurements and analyze the data. 2) Publish scientific papers and present results from the research at domestic and international conferences.

Requested Qualifications> - Ph.D. in condensed matter physics within the last five years. - Familiarity with neutron scattering in studying quantum materials. - Solid background in magnetism and condensed matter physics. - Strong record of publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at scientific meetings - Effective verbal and written communication skills with fluent English

Preferred Qualifications> - Ability to work efficiently and independently in a collaborative working environment in solving scientifically challenging problems
