Postdoctoral Research Associate (Surface and SRF Characterization)

Selected candidate will conduct research under direction of and in consultation with more experienced scientists. Areas of research may be in any of the scientific or technology development activities within the Division/Center of assignment/appointment. Appointees do not have specific line or organizational responsibilities. They are expected to complete scientific paper(s)/publication(s) based on their research. SRF Program is looking for a postdoctoral research associate in the area of surface and superconducting material characterization to participate in the various directions of the superconducting RF cavity research with the primary goal of understanding/tailoring the near-surface nanostructure of SRF cavities for advancing further achievable quality factors and surface fields for accelerators (e.g. PIP-II, ILC etc.) and non-accelerator applications (e.g. quantum computing, dark sector searches etc.). The successful applicant will be primarily involved in the Materials Science Lab-based research utilizing the in-house state-of-the-art equipment (SEM/EDX/EBSD, cryo-AFM, cryo-MFM, Quantum Design PPMS with AC/DC magnetometry, resistivity, and thermal options, IONTOF TOF-SIMS), as well as will be utilizing the complimentary characterization facilities located at the nearby universities, e.g. Northwestern, UIUC etc. (FIB, TEM, XPS, AES etc.). Respects, understands and values individual differences that embody the principles of diversity. Abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations. This position is for a period of up to three (3) years, with the potential for extension considered on a yearly basis thereafter.  The position is contingent on the availability of funding. Required qualifications: Ph.D. in Physics or Materials Science Good understanding of the basics of materials science and superconductivity Experience with one or several of the following characterization tools: AFM, MFM, XPS, AES, TOF-SIMS, AC susceptibility, DC magnetometry, FIB, TEM. Exposure to SRF, high field magnet, or quantum technologies R&D is a plus Application Instructions Interested candidates should submit, via Academic Jobs Online (AJO): cover letter curriculum vitae research statement publication list three reference letters (to be submitted by the reference writers at the AJO site)

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
