Postdoctoral Research Associate Cryo-EM on Quantum Materials

Organizational Overview
The Advanced Electron Microscopy and Nanostructured Materials Group in CMPMS, BNL, is seeking postdoctoral research associate for Cryogenic electron microscopy study of quantum materials.
The goal of the research is to explore, understand, and control the novel physical mechanisms of quantum materials, including charge-spin-lattice interactions at a wide range of temperatures, especially at low temperatures where intriguing materials behavior emerges. The research will focus on quantum materials exhibiting insulator-metal-transition, spin-torque-oscillator, or topological properties for novel forms of information storage and manipulation.
Position Description
The position will provide an exceptional opportunity for research in quantum materials and devices for one or two of the following areas: strongly correlated electron systems, multiferroics, topological materials, skyrmions, and superconductors, at the forefront of electron microscopy with extraordinary spatial and temporal resolutions to understand structure-property relationship. Planned experiments with quantitative data analyses include, but not limited to, low temperature atomic imaging, high energy-resolution energy-loss spectroscopy, nanoprobe 4D scanning diffraction, in-situ electromagnetic biasing, and ultrafast electron microscopy. The work will be conducted under the direction of Dr. Yimei Zhu. Close collaborations with leading theoretical and experimental groups at BNL are an essential ingredient of the research.
Position Requirements
  • PhD. in Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Science or closely related fields.
  • Solid background in electron microscopy and structural characterization.
  • Experience in aberration corrected electron microscopy and monochromated electron energy-loss-spectroscopy.
  • Ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopy
  • Effective communication skills.
