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 neutron and x-ray spectroscopy. The project involves carrying out bulk crystal growth of novel frustrated quantum magnets, characterizing the materials, and conducting inelastic neutron and x-ray scattering experiments. Previous experience with x-ray and neutron scattering, materials synthesis, and/ or crystal growth is an advantage, but not a necessity.
