With more than 6,300 employees in research, teaching and administration and its unique profile, TU Dortmund University shapes prospects for the future: The cooperation between engineering and natural sciences as well as social and cultural studies promotes both technological innovations and progress in knowledge and methodology. And it is not only the more than 34,300 students who benefit from that.
The Cinchetti Group in the Faculty of Physics invites applications for a near term position as a Research Assistant (Postdoctoral Student) limited until 31.12.2023. The duration of the contract will suit the aspired qualification. The salary follows the regulations of the collective bargaining law in salary class 13 TV-L or, if applicable, by transitional law (TVü-L). This is a full-time position. The position is, in principle, also appropriate for part time employment.
YOUR TASKS The PostDoc student will be responsible of coordinating the timeresolved magneto-optical experiments that are currently planned in our group within the framework of the following projects: - Projects B8 and B9 of the TRR160 - Project A08 of the TRR142 - DFG Project PHOENIX - the recently funded FETOPEN Project SINFONIA (Selectively activated INFOrmation techNology by hybrid Organic InterfAces)
For more details on these projects please visit the group home page at: http://www.e6.physik.tu-dortmund.de/. In a nutshell, the projects deal with the ultrafast (i.e. femtosecond) manipulation of spin and charge excitations (magnons, excitons, plasmons) in two-dimensional electronic systems, with special focus on antiferromagnetic systems and molecular compounds.
The projects will be realized by utilizing our recently developed setup for wide spectral range ultrafast pump-probe magneto-optical spectrometry at low temperatures, high-magnetic and electric fields, that is described in the following publication: https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0024449. The setup is now being upgraded with a supercontinuum probe and the possibility to perform spectroscopy of micrometer-sized samples (such as flakes of 2D materials).
WE OFFER - the candidate will be strongly encouraged and supported to apply for personal grant on a topic related to the main activity of the Cinchetti group. - the possibility to gain experience in the supervision of PhD and Master students/preparation and conduction of physics-related courses (4 hours/week). - visibility of the working group on an international level
We explicitly note that applications of all sexes are welcome. Applications from women are favored complying with legal regulation. We explicitly note that applications of severely disabled persons are welcome. Please send applications with the usual documents (no originals), quoting the reference number W04-21 until 08.02.2021 to:
