Research Associate or Senior Research Associate
Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, University of Bristol, UK

High-Temperature Superconductivity in Hydrogen Compounds

Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate or
Senior Research Associate as part of a 5 year ERC research grant on
high-temperature superconductors. This position offers to study recently
discovered high-temperature high-pressure superconductors like H3S and
to discover new high-temperature superconductors. The first part of the
programme focuses on the mechanism of superconductivity in H3S using
magnetic and transport measurements.

The successful applicant should have experience in high-pressure
experiments using diamond anvil pressure cells and ideally also in
magnetic and transport measurements at low-temperature. Experience in
interpreting results of magnetic and transport studies in the framework
of superconductivity is desired. A PhD in condensed matter physics or
closely related subject either awarded or to be awarded in the very near
future, is required.

The Correlated Electrons Systems group at the University of Bristol
which is world-leading in the field of superconductivity. You will find
it a stimulating environment covering a wide expertise from theory via
sample synthesis to bulk measurements and microscopic probes. The group
is part of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics
attracting the best PhD students. The University of Bristol is a
research intensive elite university in the vibrant city of Bristol in
the beautiful West of England.

The Research Associate or Senior Research Associate position is
available to start February 2017 or soon afterwards for a period of 36
months. Salary will be dependent on role and experience.

The closing date for applications is midnight, 15th November 2016.
