Postdoctoral Position at National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and DOE Center for Molecular Magnetic Quantum Materials
Application deadline: Until the position is filled by suitable candidate
Start date: Some flexibility, but sooner is better
A postdoctoral position is available in the Electron Magnetic Resonance (EMR) group at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab), funded through the Center for Molecular Magnetic Quantum Materials (M2QM).
The project involves fundamental spectroscopic investigations of molecular materials developed within M2QM, and via a worldwide network of collaborators, employing state-of-the-art instrumentation available at the MagLab for both continuous-wave and pulsed EPR at high magnetic fields. Additional stimuli such as light-irradiation and high-pressures will also be available to further modulate the quantum properties of the molecules under study. Areas of interest within M2QM that are under active investigation at the MagLab include: understanding decoherence processes and the development of strategies for enhancing coherence in molecular spin qubits; demonstration of multi-qubit entanglement and quantum logic operations in magnetic molecules; exploitation of magnetoelectric coupling and optical activity for realization of electrically and optically switchable spin qubits; and studies of substrate interactions in molecular films and devices.
The successful applicant should have a PhD in either physics, physical chemistry or a closely related discipline. Expertise in EPR spectroscopy is certainly an advantage. However, strong consideration will also be given to applicants with experience in the application of other spectroscopic or magnetic characterization methods to molecular materials.
The MagLab is operated for the National Science Foundation by a collaboration of institutions comprising FSU, UF, and LANL. FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action/Pro Disabled & Veteran Employer. We encourage women and all underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to apply.
