Post Doctoral Position: ANTARES Beamline

Post Doctoral Position: ANTARES Beamline

SOLEIL Synchrotron

Saint-Aubin, France

Synchrotron SOLEIL has an opening for a post-doctoral position (one year, extendable to a second year) on the ANTARES (Analysis Nano-spoT Angle Resolved photo Emission Spectroscope) beamline. ANTARES is designed to perform spatial- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (Nano–ARPES). The instrument is therefore well suited to determine the electronic band structure of micro- and nano-sized samples as well as large specimens with nano heterogeneities. Moreover, the experimental setup is able to perform spatial imaging of local atomic environment of a chemical element by raster imaging of XPS core levels.

The main scientific research topics of ANTARES include graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials (MoS2, TiSe2, BN, etc), 2D van der Waals heterostructure, twisted bilayers, perovskites such as SrTiO3, one-dimensional (1D) systems including carbon nanotubes, 1D metal chains, as well as exploring novel materials such as new superconductors, semiconductors for electronics and so on. Recently beamline commissioned the in-operando facility for studies of electronic bands in the electrically connected samples. This opens opportunities for various numerous novel approaches in the ARPES studies, like doping with voltage, studies of non-equilibrium phenomena, experiments with samples under mechanical stress, etc, etc.

Description of the position

The successful candidate is expected to develop her/his own scientific project within the possibilities and using the capabilities of the beamline. The project should have well defined subject and it can be localized in one of the following fields:

  • two-dimensional materials and their heterostructures;
  • topological materials;
  • one-dimensional materials;
  • in-operando studies of micro-devices;

The candidate is encouraged to advance his/hers research with ARPES from sub-micron spot, a unique capability of ANTARES instrument. It has been proven to be an advantage in studies of micro-crystals, polycrystalline samples, micro-flakes, domains, etc, etc, opening versatile opportunities for research study. The project is also welcome to make use of new in-operando capability of the instrument, aiming on scientific opportunities provided with the technical development.

The instrument is serving wide international user community. Occasional involvement in user support is an inherent part of the role of beamline postdoc, as well as the participation in the continued development of nanoARPES instrument.

Qualifications & Experience

The candidate should hold a Ph.D or an equivalent title in material science or a related discipline. Previous experience with ARPES will be greatly appreciated.

The following aspects will be considered with the greatest attention:

  • Expertise in UHV in situ facilities (MBE, STM, ARPES, LEED).
  • Proven knowledge of sample synthesis and preparation.
  • Capability in developing complex experimental equipment.
  • Demonstrated experience in organizing the activity at shared experimental facilities.
  • Solid background in programming for data treatment.
  • Ability to work independently and in group.
  • The candidate must be fluent in English (written and spoken). Knowledge of French is also desirable but not mandatory and lessons are offered to non-native speakers.
