The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,328 - £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
The Condensed Matter and Materials Physics group at UCL has an opening for a research fellow to work on ferroelectric oxide heterostructures.
The aim of the project is to investigate the dielectric properties and the phenomenon of negative capacitance in complex oxide heterostructures. The postholder will be involved in the deposition and structural and electrical characterisation of high quality epitaxial thin films and heterostructures, fabrication of devices and analysis and interpretation of the experimental data. The postholder will also collaborate closely with our theory project partners.
This position is funded for 18 months in the first instance.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry or related subject, and expertise in nanoscale ferroelectricity. Experience with physical vapour deposition of epitaxial thin films and thin film characterisation techniques is desirable.
Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £30,922-£32,607 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
