The Quantum Materials Group, the Institute for Solid State Physics, the University of Tokyo(http://www.issp.u-tokyo.ac.jp/maincontents/organization/quantum_en.html) announces two postdoctoral positions in condensed-matter experiment. The initial Postdoctoral Associate appointment will be for one year, with the expectation for renewal for an additional two years. The successful candidate will work on the spintronics using topological magnets by design, film deposition, fabrication, and characterization of spintronics devices (e.g. spin-Hall, spin-orbit torque, spin wave devices) in collaboration with the Nakatsuji and Otani labs. Applications, including (1)a CV, (2)a list of publications, (3)reprints of up to three major publications , (4) description of past research and main achievements (within 2 pages) , and (5) research plan (within 2 pages) should be sent to: email@example.com. The applicant should arrange for a recommendation letter by an academic supervisor or a reference to be sent by email to the same address.
Requirements: A Ph. D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science or other related field, and familiarity with the tools of modern experimental physics and spintronics are required. We seek candidates with strong interpersonal and communication skills.
2 openings. Employer will assist with relocation costs.
About Quantum Materials Group, ISSP, UTokyo
Discovery of new materials, new phenomena, and new concepts has progressed condensed matter physics. A good example can be found in the history of research in strongly correlated electron systems, one of the major fields studied in ISSP. On the other hand, breakthroughs have been often made at an intersection of various different research fields. To facilitate another leap forward in our activity, the quantum materials group has been created to promote interdisciplinary studies based on the collaboration between the experimental and theoretical groups beyond the conventional research disciplines.
The quantum materials group currently consists of two core groups and six joint groups. All these groups vigorously conduct collaborative research to discover novel quantum phases and functional materials in correlated electron/spin systems. The activities include new material synthesis in bulk and thin film forms and their characterization through state-of-art measurement systems. Device fabrication is also made for spintronics applications. These experiments are being conducted through lively discussion and tight collaboration with theory groups, which search for novel topological phases by using new theoretical approach and numerical methods.
