Available Postdoctoral Opportunities:
Postdoctoral Research Associate
A postdoctoral research position in experimental condensed matter physics is immediately available at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) in Tallahassee, Florida, US. The candidate selected will perform research on strongly correlated systems, nanoscale systems and photosynthetic light-harvesting proteins using techniques of optical and magneto-optical spectroscopy. Current research interests center on the study of novel phases in complex transition metal oxides, ultrafast exciton dynamics and photophysics in high magnetic fields. The postdocs research will be jointly supervised by Dr. Stephen McGill (MagLab) and Prof. Greg Scholes (Univ. of Toronto). Additionally, the postdoc will be expected to develop and utilize new optical techniques at the NHMFL involving femtosecond ultrafast spectroscopy within the unique 25 T Split-Florida Helix magnet. The postdocs research will benefit greatly from the collaborative, active, and stimulating environment of the wider condensed matter group at the NHMFL. The initial appointment will be for one year, with renewal for up to two additional years conditional upon performance and availability of funding.
A Ph.D. degree in physics or chemistry and prior experience with femtosecond pump-probe or nonlinear optical spectroscopy are required. A candidate with knowledge of excited state dynamics in chemistry, biophysics, or condensed matter physics is highly desired.
Please submit your application electronically in a single PDF file via email to Stephen McGill. The application should include a statement of research interests and previous experience, a CV, a list of publications, and the names of three references. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and will be considered until the position is filled.
