[20130531] Postdoctoral Associate Position in High-Pressure Superconductivity, Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington, USA

Postdoctoral Associate Position in High-Pressure Superconductivity 
Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington, USA

The Energy Frontier Research in Extreme Environments (Efree) Center, at the Geophysical Laboratory (GL) of Carnegie Institution of Washington ( https://efree.gl.ciw.edu ), seeks applications for a postdoctoral associate position in the field of superconductivity. The EFree Center at GL has a strong program in the study of superconductivity at high pressures by using in-house facilities as well as national synchrotron and neutron sources.

Minimum qualifications:  A PhD in condensed matter physics with an excellent publication record in the research field of superconductivity or in strongly correlated electron systems.

Desired qualifications:  The candidate should have proven experience in the synthesis and characterization of superconducting materials and in measurements of transport and magnetic properties. Previous experience in high-pressure studies, organic superconductors, and high-Tc materials would be considered a strong advantage but is not required.  The successful candidate is expected to be able to work independently in pursuit of his/her own, clear scientific agenda. 

To submit an application online.  Only complete applications submitted via the Geophysical Laboratory website will be considered.


The position is available immediately, and this call for applications will remain open until they are filled.  The prospective researcher will be working at the Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington. The Carnegie Institution of Washington is an equal opportunity employer.
