Job posting: Los Alamos seeks postdoctoral researcher

Current COVID-19 Community Level: LOW (Updated Nov. 22) CDC COVID-19 County Check

The Pulsed Field Facility of the U.S. National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is seeking highly motivated Postdoctoral researchers that wish to advance their research career at the world's premier high magnetic field research facility. Research at the Pulsed Field Facility spans a range of modern condensed matter topics, utilizing cutting-edge experimental techniques with an emphasis on multiple extreme environments (high fields, low temperatures, high pressures and strains). The successful candidates for these positions will have a strong track record of experimental research and scientific communication. The current search has a particular emphasis on topologically non-trivial systems: including but not limited to magnetic topological insulators, Dirac and Weyl semimetals, spin ices, low carrier density topological semimetals in the extreme quantum limit, quantum anomalies, and the evolution of topological properties under in-situ strain and extreme magnetic fields. In collaboration with PFF mentors, candidates are expected to develop their own research projects that align with the ongoing research interests of the group. Beyond being part of the Center for the Advancement of Topological Semimetals, a DOE Energy Frontiers Research Center, candidates will have the opportunity to join the NSF-funded pulsed field user program, and LANL LDRD research teams. Exceptional candidates will be eligible to compete for distinguished Postdoctoral research fellowships funded through the LANL Director's postdoctoral program.
