As part of an EPSRC-sponsored research grant, we are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work jointly between the groups of Profs. Phil King (https://www.quantummatter.co.uk/king) and Peter Wahl (https://wahl.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk) in St Andrews, on a project focussed on spectroscopic studies of 2D magnetic materials and van der Waals heterostructures.
We are looking for an experimental physicist, with excellent knowledge of condensed matter physics. The role will involve performing ARPES and STM studies in St Andrews, as well as experiments at international synchrotron light sources. It will involve close collaboration with other researchers in St Andrews, and with our partners at the University of Oxford, UK Central Facilities, and CNR (Italy). The project is embedded within the Centre for Designer Quantum Materials (https://www.quantummatter.co.uk), a collaborative research centre at the University of St Andrews. Housed in purpose-built and recently renovated lab space, this centre provides an active and vibrant research environment. The successful candidate will join the CDQM, and will benefit from its superb resources, including capabilities for molecular-beam epitaxy growth, spectroscopic studies via scanning tunnelling microscopy and angle-resolved photoemission, bespoke tools for transport and thermodynamic studies, and an extensive range of materials characterisation capabilities.
This is a fixed-term post for up to 30 months. It is available to start from 1st August 2023, although the exact start date can be agreed by negotiation.
Informal enquiries can be directed to Prof Phil King (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof Peter Wahl (email@example.com).
Applications are particularly welcome from those with a commitment to the School and University's aspirations towards equality, diversity and inclusivity. The School has Juno Champion status, which recognises physics departments who take action to embed better working practices for all staff and to address the under-representation of women in UK and Irish universities, and holds an Athena Swan Silver award. The University of St Andrews is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all, demonstrated by its Gender and Race Equality Charters and Athena SWAN award for women in science, HR Excellence in Research Award and the LGBT Charter.
