The momentum resolved spectroscopy group led by Professor Kemp Plumb in the Department of Physics at Brown University is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to perform investigations of quantum magnetic materials using resonant x-ray scattering. The project involves carrying out bulk crystal growth and characterization of novel frustrated quantum magnets, performing resonant x-ray scattering experiments on those materials, and the development of new coherent resonant scattering techniques. Collaboration with the x-ray scattering group at Brookhaven National Lab will be an important part of this effort. Previous experience with x-ray or neutron scattering, materials synthesis, crystal growth is an advantage, but not a necessity.
Applicants must have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD in physics or other closely related field. Candidates who are seeking a second postdoc are welcome to apply, but only those with 3 years or fewer of previous postdoctoral experience are eligible for the position. Candidates must have an excellent track record of academic performance including scientific publications. The start date is planned for January 15, 2021 but is negotiable. The initial appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension.
Application materials including a curriculum vita, a brief (1 page or less) statement of past research and current interests, and at least three letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically via Interfolio. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Brown University is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic global community; as an EEO/AA employer, Brown considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
