The quantum materials group at the University of Arkansas (https://quantumlab.uark.edu/) is seeking a postdoctoral candidate to work on the broad area of quantum materials, with focus on topological semimetals. The successful candidate will perform single crystal growth, X-ray diffraction, electronic transport and magnetic property characterization at local facilities and/or National Laboratories. Experience characterizing 2D material devices is a plus.
The postdoctoral fellow is expected to work in a highly collaborative way with members of the quantum device group led by Prof. Churchill (http://churchill-lab.com) and to interact with the 2D materials theory group led by Prof. Barraza-Lopez (https://wordpressua.uark.edu/sbarraza/), and is expected to be able to analyze data, write scientific papers, present his/her work at conferences, and to interact with graduate and undergraduate students in these groups.
The initial appointment is for one year, renewable based on the need for the position, availability of funding, and continued satisfactory level of performance in the role.
PhD in Physics or related discipline
Experience and ability to work independently with a desire to learn
Knowledge of single crystal growth and characterizations, transport measurements, and magnetic characterizations
Demonstrated scientific writing skills
How to apply:
Interested candidates should send 1) a cover letter detailing specific experience, 2) CV with a list of publications, 3) a summary of research interests, and 4) two reference letters to email@example.com (RE: Postdoctoral search).
