Position: Postdoctoral Fellow
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: Your research activity will focus on the magnetic properties in topological magnets with Resonant Inelastic X-Ray Scattering RIXS. RIXS as a photon-in/photon-out spectroscopic method gives direct access to low energy excitations of a solid; In your research projects you will use the state-of-the-art RIXS spectrometer at the Advanced Resonant Spectroscopies ADRESS beamline at the Swiss Light Source SLS as well as other instruments at SLS and other facilities for advanced spectroscopic investigations; In addition, you will be responsible for the development, testing, and characterization of sample holders with permanent magnets optimized for RIXS experiments in collaboration with the Insertion Device group; You will also assist in the development, support, and maintenance of specialized measurement equipment at the beamline; You will support and be involved in the experiment of external users
Requirements: You have a PhD degree in physics and solid knowledge of condensed matter physics, quantum mechanics, and magnetism; You are an expert of X-Ray spectroscopy, optical absorption spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, or inelastic neutron scattering; You have experience in research on correlated materials or magnetism and have demonstrated your ability to conduct high quality research by having an excellent publication record; You are interested in operating and upgrading state-of-the-art experimental equipment and enjoy working with external users as well as within your team; You have good software skills to analyze data and have excellent communication skills in English; You are ready to shift up to 20% of working hours when necessary and work long hours during X-ray experiments at large scale facilities including working at odd hours and weekends
