Postdoctoral Research Associate (Design, Crystal Growth and Physical Characteristics of New Materials with Exotic Electronic and Topological Ground States)

University of Liverpool - Department of Chemistry

Location: Liverpool
Salary: £34,805 to £40,322 pa
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 25th October 2021
Closes: 11th December 2021
Job Ref: 033029

Applications are invited for an ambitious scientist with a strong track record of excellence to work within an interdisciplinary team of researchers as part of the Leverhulme Centre for Functional Materials Design.

This position is for a post-doctoral research associate (PDRA) to grow large crystals of new materials with unusual electronic, magnetic and topological ground states, and carry out advanced physical measurements. The programme will exploit our in-house single crystal growth platform comprising a four mirror floating zone furnace, a purposely designed two-zone furnace for chemical vapour transport, and a suite of furnaces for melt and flux growth to produce high quality bulk single crystals of the targeted materials. We have two Rigaku rotating anode diffractometers for detailed characterisation of the resulting materials. The identification of the materials will involve engagement with the extensive computational team in the Centre.

You will work in a multidisciplinary computation-experiment team, spanning physical and computer science. We are open to applications from excellent scientists who will contribute at a high level to the project. Our initial preferences to synthesise the desired materials are in the area of single crystal growth of inorganic compounds (oxides, chalcochenides, pictnides or intermetallics), but candidates who make a strong case for the relevance of their skills to the project goals will be considered.

Direct supervision by and reporting to Professor M J Rosseinsky. You will work closely with Dr Jon Alaria on a day-to-day basis.  The post is available for 36 months.
