The Pro-QM team at Columbia University, Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and Stony Brook University (SBU) seeks an associate research scientist interested in quantum materials research and developing next-generation near-field microscopy techniques.
The successful applicant will participate in ongoing experiments among Pro-QM teams, especially Mengkun Liu’s lab at SBU and BNL, including studies of low-dimensional quantum material at the nanoscale using ultrafast and ultrabroadband infrared-THz light sources. His/Her main task will be to incorporate ultra-broadband frequency light sources into a state-of-the-art magneto-near-field-microscope to study quantum materials at extreme conditions (5 nm spatial resolution, cryogenic temperatures <10K, high magnetic field up to 7T etc.). The work will involve the study of the magneto-optic effect in Dirac and Weyl heterostructures with an emphasis on the nonreciprocal magnetoplasmon and photocurrent measurements. He/she will be exposed to the research through a broad collaboration through Pro-QM at Columbia U., Washington U., SBU, and BNL. Thus, the associate research scientist will receive training in a wide variety of skills at the cutting edge of ultrafast and nano-optics, putting them in an excellent position to pioneer new techniques in their independent career.
At the time of starting the position, the postdoc should have a Ph. D. in Physics or a related discipline and previous experience with cryogenic measurements or optics.
