Postdoc in experimental condensed matter physics

Applications are invited for a 2-year postdoc position in experimental condensed matter physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University, Denmark. You will contribute to the development of synchrotron radiation and free electron laser-based photoemission techniques with high time resolution and high spatial resolution. The experiments will be combined with advanced data analysis and machine learning approaches.

Ihre Aufgaben

Job description

  • You will be exploring the development of ultrafast X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and ultrafast X-ray photoelectron diffraction (XPD) using free electron lasers such as FLASH, the European XFEL or LCLS-II, and possibly also high harmonic laser sources.
  • You will also make use of the local synchtrotron radiation source ASTRID2 in Aarhus for angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy experiments on a micron length scale (microARPES).
  • These experiments will explore the physics of novel quantum materials such as 2D materials and topological materials.
  • You will be working with data analysis and data visualization tools for such experiments, including machine learning techniques for more efficient data handling.

Ihre Qualifikation

Your profile

Applicants should hold a PhD in physics or similar.

Desirable qualifications are
  • Experience with ultra-high vacuum.
  • Experience in performing photoemission experiments (XPS, XPD, ARPESD) using synchrotron radiation sources.
  • Experience in handling large amounts of data and developing code for doing so, including machine learning techniques.
  • Previous work with free electron laser sources and experience with performing and analyzing XPD experiments will be an advantage.

Ihre Vorteile

What we offer

The successful candidate is offered a 24-month postdoc position in a thriving and inspiring research group that investigates the fundamental properties of condensed matter at ultrashort time and length scales. The research climate invites lively, open and critical discussion within and across different fields of research and a working environment with teamwork, close working relations and network activities among young scientists. The workplace is characterized by professionalism, equality, and a healthy work-life balance.
