Singapore Synchrotron Light Source
Makes Light Work For You
Postdoctoral research fellowship on SPIN ARPES characterization at SSLS
Singapore Synchrotron Light Source (SSLS), 5 Research Link,
National University of Singapore, Singapore 117603
Description of position and requirements
The Singapore Synchrotron Light Source (SSLS) is constructing and developing a new state-of-the-art in-situ synchrotron-based characterization facility consisting of a soft X-ray ultraviolet (SUV) beamline, in-situ resonant soft X-ray scattering, in-situ spin & angular resolved photoemission spectroscopy (Spin-ARPES) and pulsed laser deposition molecular beam epitaxy (PLD-MBE) as one integrated system. The main application area of this new facility is studying the interplay of spin, charge, orbital and lattice degrees of freedom, particularly in two- and low-dimensional materials as well as perovskite materials. We have funding available for a postdoctoral fellowship to work on this project as a beamline scientist, responsible for operating, maintaining and upgrading our new Spin-ARPES system. He/she will have his/her own scientific project and help multiple users
QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized PhD degree, preferably in physics, chemistry, nanotechnology, material science, or equivalent. The candidate should have good physics understanding in spectroscopies, particularly in spin- and angular-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (Spin-ARPES), and surface science.
The following qualities are essential:
- Ability to work with staff and users as part of a multidisciplinary team.
- Willingness to supervise and to train graduate students.
- Good time management skills.
- Ability to work in an English-speaking environment.
- Initial contract of 12 months, renewable for up to a further 24 months
- Competitive salary
- Appointment as research fellow or senior research fellow, depending on experience
- This position will commence in early 2017
All applications and enquiries should be directed to Professor Mark Breese (Director, SSLS), Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications should include a full CV, cover letter and list of three referees.
This post will remain open until it is filled.
