RESEARCH SCIENTIST, Nuclear Science and Engineering-Quantum Measurement Group, to work on a broad area of quantum materials and quantum information, either theoretical or experimental. Duties will include synthesis and crystal growth of emergent quantum materials for energy and information applications; electrical, thermal, and spectroscopic characterization of quantum materials; and theoretical laying of the foundation to design new principles that can better characterize quantum materials. Will also prepare federal and private grants that lead to new fundamental breakthroughs in materials science; work closely with graduate students and postdocs to disseminate the research results that lead to influential work; and supervise a number of participants from the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) and partially advise the experimental progress of the Ph.D. students.
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in a related area, including materials science and engineering and condensed matter physics; five years of experience in related areas; and strong communication and writing skills.
PREFERRED: experience with the synthesis of quantum materials using hydrothermal method, sol-gel method, flux method, chemical vapour transport method, and arc melting method; experience performing low-temperature electrical and thermal transport measurements; experience carrying out quantum-field theoretical calculations on an emergent quantum material system in response to external probes; experience with nano-fabrication of devices; and machine-learning experience in materials science research.
