Postdoctoral Researcher in Materials and Applications of Superconductivity
Advanced Physics Laboratory – Institute for Quantum Studies
Advanced Physics Laboratory of Chapman University in Burtonsville, Maryland (https://www.chapman.edu/research/institutes-and-centers/quantum-studies/advanced-physics-laboratory/index.aspx) has immediate opening of a Postdoctoral position for working in a search for room-temperature superconductors, as well as exploration of novel superconductivity-based quantum devices. Candidates who have experience in cryogenics and SQUID magnetometry, electron microscopy, microanalysis (EDX, WDX, EBSD), nanolithography (Nabity system), Raman and FTIR spectroscopy, thin film deposition via magnetron (DC, AC, ion-assisted), e-beam, and PLD based techniques, as well as laser processing and micromachining, may be considered. Experience with LabVIEW, COMSOL Multiphysics, ABINIT/VASP/QuantumVise, and a good understanding of physics of superconductivity would be a big plus. This 2 year position (extension may be possible) is expected to begin as soon as the appropriate candidate is found. Strongly motivated researchers should send their Statement of Interest, and a CV focused on relevant experience, to Dr. Armen M. Gulian (firstname.lastname@example.org). Candidate’s final selection will require three letters of recommendation.
In-Person Interviews are available Wednesday and Thursday 9am-5pm at the 2019 March APS Meeting by Appointment. Email email@example.com to schedule your interview or for more information about this position.
Offer includes full package of fringe benefits. Living facilities are available at a walking distance from the lab.
