Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 22nd January 2020

The College of Science & Engineering

Salary will be on the University's Research and Teaching Grade, level 8/9, £44,045 - £51,034/£52,560 - £59,135 per annum.

The School is one of the University's most research-active Schools, with annual research income of around £10M p.a. and a research order book of ~£20M. Our research portfolio is diverse, with world-class programmes that address major challenges in fundamental and applied physics through their close alignment with UKRI priorities, and with major elements of the College and University's strategic plans.

The Materials and Condensed Matter Physics group is an internationally renowned research group with expertise in the methods of transmission electron microscopy and its application to the study of functional materials. In particular the group is one of the leading exponents of the specialised technique of Lorentz microscopy for the study of magnetic materials. There are currently 5 academic staff in a group of around 30. Research areas of current interest include, but not limited to, chiral materials, plasmonics, steels, nanostructured materials (both 2D and 3D), thermoelectric materials, skyrmions and ferroelectrics.

Within the MCMP group is the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre which houses the instrumentation facilities. This includes an aberration corrected STEM with analytical capability including EELS, one TEM and 2 focused ion beam microscopes (one Ga and on Xe). In the TEM machines we have specialised sample rods for in-situ experimentation including field application, temperature control and current injection. Additionally the FIB instruments have 3D patterning capability via gas injection sources. Furthermore we have a pulsed laser deposition system for making thin film samples and stacks as well as a MOKE system for both micromagnetic characterisation and optical imaging. As well as possessing these advanced imaging systems we have a strong record of development of the methodologies of TEM, recently this has been most visible in the groups pioneering use of direct radiation pixelated detectors
