Position ID:Duke-Physics-PDASARAFFSC [#26461]
Position Title: Postdoctoral Associate
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Durham, North Carolina 27708, United States [map] sort by distance
Subject Area: Physics / Quantum Materials
Appl Deadline:none (listed until 2024/02/29)
Position Description:    

The physics department at Duke University is seeking to make one postdoctoral associate appointment in experimental quantum condensed matter physics to join the Haravifard Lab. Candidates with experience in material design, synthesis, single crystal growth, thermodynamics and transport measurements (magnetic susceptibility, magnetization, specific heat, resistivity etc.), as well as X-ray and neutron scattering are particularly encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be expected to perform sample synthesis/single crystal growth and characterization measurements at Duke University. X-ray and neutron scattering experiments will be conducted at the national and international user facilities. Experiments under extreme sample environments will be conducted in collaboration with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. Background in analysis of X-ray/neutron scattering data, coding programs and computational modeling of physical systems is a plus.

Applicants for this position should hold a PhD in condensed matter physics, solid state chemistry, or experimental materials science. This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal for up to two additional years.

Applications, including three letters of reference, a research statement, CV and list of publications & presentations must be received by December 15, 2023 to receive full consideration.
