Position Description

The successful candidate will develop and utilize X-ray total scattering techniques on single crystals and polycrystals to probe orbital, charge and magnetic ordering in quantum materials using the pair-distribution function method. This involves preparing and performing state-of-the-art x-ray scattering experiments, analyzing the data, and disseminating the results in scientific publications and talks.

Position Requirements

A PhD in experimental condensed matter physics or related field.
Experience in central facility-based scattering techniques such as x-ray scattering, neutron scattering, photoelectron spectroscopy etc.
Self-motivated and able to work both independently and as part of a team.
Proven abilities for disseminating research by writing manuscripts and giving academic talks.

Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

Demonstrated data analysis skills
Knowledge of programming languages, such as Python, and experience with large datasets
A good understanding of the science of quantum materials
Demonstrated experience with single crystal experiments and data analysis
Previous experience with Pair Distribution Function analysis

Other Information:
While principally based at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the candidate should be willing to travel to carry out experiments at various national and international facilities.
BNL policy requires that research associate appointments be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years.
