The Institute for Quantum Matter at Johns Hopkins University (http://iqm.jhu.edu) combines spintronics, materials synthesis, spectroscopy, and theory to develop new materials functionality based on quantum correlations. An outstanding postdoctoral fellow is sought to participate in coordinated research at the interface between spintronics, experimental condensed matter physics, and materials science. The successful candidate will design, synthesize, and analyze thin film structures based on topological quantum materials under the principal supervision of Prof. Satoru Nakatsuji. There will be opportunities to work both in Baltimore and Tokyo and to collaborate with leading scientists with a wide range of capabilities and interests. A Ph.D. in electrical engineering, physics, materials science, or chemistry and familiarity with sputtering and the tools of spintronics and modern experimental physics are required. We seek candidates with strong interpersonal and communication skills. The Johns Hopkins University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer of women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities and encourages applications from individuals within these and other protected groups. Consideration of applications will start immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should submit a CV, a list of publication, a research statement, and arrange for two letters of recommendation to be submitted on their behalf to Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/13258.
About Johns Hopkins University Dept. of Physics & Astronomy
The mission of The Johns Hopkins University is to educate its students and cultivate their capacity for life-long learning, to foster independent and original research, and to bring the benefits of discovery to the world.
The programs of instruction and research in the Department of Physics and Astronomy reflect two features which have a long tradition at Hopkins. They are the emphasis on graduate study and research, supplemented by a strong undergraduate program, and the flexibility possible in a department of our size.
