Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,
ich möchte Sie heute auf zwei interessante Ausschreibungen auf dem Gebiet der Kristallzüchtung in den USA (Argonne National Lab) und in Warschau (ENSEMBLE3) hinweisen.

Nachfolgend erhalten Sie die Informationen der Kollegen:

Multiple Postdoctoral Openings, Materials Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory

Dear Colleagues:

I apologize for this rather impersonal broadcast email, but I would like to bring to your attention three openings for postdoctoral researchers in the Emerging Materials group at Argonne National Laboratory.  I include brief descriptions of each position below, but the areas are as follows:

Position #1:  Bulk oxide crystal growth – while properties measurements will be an element, the primary skillset desired is considerable experience in single crystal growth of transition metal oxides, familiarity with intermetallics also welcome.

Position #2:  Topological Matter – primary skills should be in physics and measurement with secondary experience in materials synthesis and crystal growth; strong interest in learning about x-ray scattering applied to topological matter.

Position #3:  Structural and Dynamical Properties of Quantum Materials – expertise in x-ray and neutron scattering (elastic and/or inelastic) of quantum materials, secondary emphasis in synthesis and growth

These three postdocs will be working closely together under the supervision of myself and Daniel Phelan as part of a recently-funded DOE project on quantum matter in the Materials Science Division at Argonne.  Collaborations with x-ray and neutron scattering groups at Argonne will be an important part of this effort.

Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately.

Positions are intended to start around Jan 1, 2021, but earlier or slightly later starts are possible.  

The descriptions below are followed by a web-link where applications can be submitted.  Unfortunately, each is listed separately, and so if a candidate wishes to apply to more than one, he or she will need to apply to each opening of interest.

I would appreciate it if you would pass this along to senior graduate students in your group who might be interested in applying.  Those who may be seeing a second postdoc are also welcome to apply, but these candidates must be fewer than 3 years since Ph.D. to be eligible per Argonne policy.  Please also feel free to share this announcement with others in your circles.

Thank you in advance, and I do hope that each of you is doing well under these most challenging circumstances.  Please stay healthy; I hope our paths will cross again before too long.
