The condensed matter spectroscopy group at Princeton University invites applications for multiple Postdoctoral Research or more senior positions to work on angle-resolved-photoemission (ARPES) studies on topological insulators, correlated materials and superconductors in combination with growth and microscopy measurements. The successful candidate will carry out experiments both at Princeton University and several national laboratories and will be expected to play a significant role in carrying out spectroscopy and microscopy measurements in combination with MBE on a variety of systems. Some exposure to first-principle band calculations or other forms of electronic structure calculations is also highly desired.
Experience in synchrotron-based ARPES end-station, beamline optics, detector hardware, electronics, and/or data acquisition technique is highly desirable, as are programming skills. Additionally MBE and STM/Microscopy/nano-ARPES skills would be a plus. The successful candidate will have a strong research record and must have a Ph.D. prior to the start of the appointment. Appointments are typically for one year with the possibility of extensions up to a third year upon mutual agreement.
