The Department of Physics at The Ohio State University is offering a Post Doctoral Scholar position under the direction of Prof. Jay Gupta (web: http://u.osu.edu/guptagroup/). The project is focused on exploring the coupling of magnetism and topological states as part of a collaboration involving MBE growth (Prof. Roland Kawakami at OSU), and spin transport theory (Prof. Michael Flatté at Univ. Iowa). Demonstrated experience with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and in particular, spin-polarized STM is preferred, although candidates with extensive experience in studying magnetic topological materials with other techniques are also encouraged to apply. In addition to relevant research experience, demonstration of good teamwork, mentoring and communication skills are important for the position.

The candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to high-profile collaborative research in an environment where professional development is also a priority. The scholar will be encouraged to present results at conferences, develop professional networks, write papers, and contribute to proposals. In addition to committed faculty mentorship, the postdoctoral scholar will be encouraged to take advantage of ongoing programs with the OSU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

Required Materials are: Cover Letter (please articulate longer-term career goals), Curriculum Vitae, Research Statement (interests specific to the proposed project, as well as general research interests), Publication List, 2-3 Reference letters (to be submitted online by the reference writers at this site). Applications will be screened on an ongoing basis until the position is filled.
