The Seaborg Institute at Idaho National Laboratory is seeking a condensed matter physicist, material research scientist, or related field postdoctoral candidate. Our areas of interests include (but are not limited to) transport and magnetism in actinide-based strongly correlated electron systems, quantum criticality, heavy fermion physics, spin-orbit coupled systems, and new phases of matter. We seek highly motivated individuals who are passionate about strongly correlated physics at extremes. The successful candidate will perform magnetic, structural, transport, and thermodynamic studies of actinide-based materials under extreme conditions such as low temperature, high magnetic field, and pressure. Research to be performed at INL and at Large User Facilities. Experience in the magnetization, thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, heat capacity, and other transport property measurements, is desired. Preference will be given to candidates with some experience in actinide research, and/or previous postdoctoral experience with demonstrated abilities in writing peer reviewed publications.
In addition to completing the online application, please submit a detailed cover letter and two letters of reference to the online application. Letters of reference can also be emailed directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: • PhD in Physics, Material Science, or related disciplines must be completed by commencement of appointment and within the previous 5 years. • Hands-on experience in magnetic, structural, or transport property measurements under pressure. • Demonstrated oral and published written communication skills (in English) and the ability to work independently, creatively, and as part of a team.
DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS: • Experience is transport and thermodynamic properties measurements. • Knowledge of magnetic, transport, thermal and thermodynamic properties of solids. • Relevant programming experience (LabView). • Previous postdoctoral experience with demonstrated abilities in writing peer reviewed publications. • Preference will be given to candidates with some experience in actinide research.
