Chalmers University of Technology is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to be part of their experimental research on the characterization of topological quantum materials. This position is part of a collaboration project between the Bloch beamline at MAX IV in Lund, and the Quantum Device Physics laboratory at Chalmers University of Technology. The aim of this project is to develop in-situ transport and photoemission spectroscopy characterization tools, eventually integrating with quantum device research at Chalmers.
The Quantum Device Physics Laboratory focuses on research and education in quantum transport, spintronics, superconducting quantum circuits, 2D materials and devices, molecular electronics, superconducting quantum interference devices, cold electron bolometers and oxide electronics. The Bloch beamline provides high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), spin-resolved ARPES and core-level spectroscopy.
The purpose of this research project is to work towards an ultra-high vacuum measurement technique sensitive to spin-polarized charge transport, initially centred around an STM coupled to the Bloch beamline. In support of this, extensive possibilities for nanofabrication and device processing are available at Chalmers University of Technology. The candidate will assist with the development and commissioning of the ARPES and spin-ARPES end stations. There will be considerable freedom and opportunities to join independent research projects based on these techniques. The post-doctoral researcher position is an appointment that offers an opportunity to qualify for further research positions within academia or industry, with the majority of your working time devoted to your own research.
