Postdoctoral research fellow position: “Study the ultrafast dynamics of magnetic topological critical materials” at the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU) / Taiwan-USAF Program
- JOB DESCRIPTION:
The Quantum Matters Physics and Ultrafast Dynamics group (Prof. Chih-Wei Luo and Prof. Jiunn-Yuan Lin) at NYCU, Taiwan, has an opening for a one-year postdoctoral position (and maybe extendable). In this project, you will perform experiments to study the ultrafast dynamics of magnetic topological critical materials with pump-probe spectroscopy under low temperature, high magnetic field and high pressure. Topics of interest include electron dynamics of a Weyl semimetal. Ultimately, the goal is to connect spectroscopic transient absorption and reflection measurements with simultaneously tunable pressure, magnetic field, and temperature techniques, in order to alter the degrees of magnetic fluctuations, and study the corresponding electronic, spectroscopic, and transport phenomena due to exotic Weyl physics.
You have (or will receive in near future) a PhD degree in physics, physical chemistry, electrical engineering, or a closely related subject. You enjoy performing experiments and analysis to stepwise build a deeper understanding of complex physical mechanisms. Experience in one or more of the involved topics (pump-probe spectroscopy, ultrafast lasers and optics, vacuum instrumentation, femtosecond science, high-pressure techniques) is required. Good verbal and written communications skills (in English) are required.
- CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT:
A postdoc position is intended as full-time appointment in the service of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, Taiwan for the duration of 1 year. The postdoc salary will be in accordance with NYCU regulations for academic personnel, and depending on experience, range from a minimum of NTD 58,920 per month up to a maximum of NTD 82,485 per month based on full-time-employment.
While flexible, preferred start dates are between June 2023 and September 2023 or as early as possible. The positions will remain open until filled.
Applicants should send an email to Esther (firstname.lastname@example.org ):
1. briefly detailing their research experience, interests and career plans;
2. with an up-to-date CV as attachment.
