Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics: 'Constructing Correlated States of Matter Using Atomic-scale Artificial Lattices'

Postdoctoral Researcher in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics: 'Constructing Correlated States of Matter Using Atomic-scale Artificial Lattices'

Radboud University - Faculty of Science

Nijmegen, Netherlands

We are looking for:

A promising route toward understanding novel quantum states of matter is to engineer many-body states atom by atom in so-called 'artificial lattices'. Low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) offers a unique combination of atomically resolved microscopy, spectroscopy and atomic manipulation, providing the experimental platform to realise 2D artificial lattices. Recently, this strategy has been successfully applied to create tunable quantum states of matter, such as novel electronic structure. However, all the states that have been probed to date and largely described in a single-particle picture are due to weak electron-electron interactions in the artificial systems investigated.

The goal of this postdoctoral project is to realise artificial lattices with tunable, strongly correlated behaviour. For this, you will utilise previously unexplored platform materials with strong spin-orbit coupling, topological character, and/or electron-electron interactions. Experiments will be performed down to mK temperatures and in high magnetic fields, employing Radboud University's unique infrastructure of ultrahigh vacuum low-temperature scanning probe microscopes.

We ask:

  • Previous experience with low-temperature scanning probe microscopy, as well as with ultra-high vacuum technology;
  • A PhD in a topic related to condensed matter physics;
  • A demonstrable track record of oral presentations at international conferences and papers published in scientific journals;
  • Good communication skills in verbal and written English.
