Job Posting: Post-Doctoral Fellow (Condensed Matter)

 

A postdoctoral position is available to study strongly correlated electrons in 2D systems using room temperature and ultra-high vacuum scanning probe microscopy. The focus of the project is to gain understanding of properties of strongly correlated electrons and their collective manifestations (CDW, magnetism, superconductivity) in systems with reduced dimensionality and how these properties could be exploited for energy applications. This is part of a large collaborative project between researchers from several universities that have complementary experimental and theoretical backgrounds.

Qualifications: The candidate will have a doctoral degree (or completed all the requirements for PhD) in a relevant discipline (PhD in physics, chemistry, materials science or engineering). A background in scanning probe microscopy is required.

The successful candidate will have strong communication skills, excellent analytical capabilities, and experience in scanning probe microscopy. Additional experience with working on strongly correlated electron systems would be advantageous.

Essential Functions: The postdoctoral fellow will collaborate and earn co-authorship on a large, international, multicenter project. The position is funded for 2 years, and we offer a comprehensive compensation package.

Supplemental Posting Information: Please send inquiries to Dr. Goran Karapetrov at gk327@drexel.edu. Please attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for 3 references to your application.

This position is supported fully or partially by external funding and continuation of the position is contingent on receipt of those external funds.

Job Posting: Post-Doctoral Fellow (Particle Physics)

 

The particle physics group at Drexel University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in experimental astroparticle physics. The successful candidate will take part in analyzing data from the completed IceCube neutrino observatory at the geographic South Pole. The IceCube observatory was built to observe neutrinos form astrophysical sources, and has recently discovered a diffuse flux of astrophysical neutrinos at high energies. The Drexel group will focus on spatially resolving the sources of astrophysical neutrinos.

The successful candidate will have a research background in astroparticle physics or related fields, experience in data processing and analysis, and are comfortable with applying statistical methods to analyze large data sets. Proficiency in modern computer languages is highly desirable. Work related travel within North America and Europe will be required.

Qualifications: PhD in physics or related fields. Experience in particle physics or astrophysics research. Experience in data analysis.

Essential Functions: Analysis of IceCube data to look for astrophysical sources Mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.

Supplemental Posting Information:The position is for one year initially, renewable up to three years. This position is supported fully or partially by external funding and continuation of the position is contingent on receipt of those external funds.

A PhD in physics or related fields is required. Doctoral candidates should indicate the expected date of completion of all degree requirements. Applications should contain a CV and a brief description of research interests. Three letters of recommendation should be sent directly to Naoko Kurahashi Neilson, naoko@drexel.edu. The nominal start date is 2/1/2015. Review of applications will begin immediately.
