Institute for Basic Science (IBS)-Center for Correlated Electron Systems invites applicants for the postdoctoral researcher or team leader positions in the field of THz/infrared spectroscopy.
Center for Correlated Electron Systems (CCES) is one of the IBS centers-a South Korean government program to establish world-leading institutes in Korea focusing on basic research. CCES was established in 2012 at Seoul National University (SNU) campus to investigate novel emerging phenomena in correlated electron materials. We have built successful science programs, worked with nine professors, about twenty-five postdoctoral researches, and sixty graduate students. We also have excellent research facilities and state-of-art equipment. Currently we are running the ISSP-CCES Global Laboratory to build the state-of-art time- & spin-resolved ARPES.
The THz/IR Spectroscopy team is led by Prof. Noh, the director of the CCES. This team focuses on understanding emergent phenomena in many quantum materials, including correlated topological materials, novel superconductors, and many other 2D materials. Many intriguing samples are grown either by collaborators inside CCES or by outside researchers. We use the time-domain THz spectroscopy, optical-pump & THz-probe spectroscopy, spectroscopic ellipsometry, and broadband (5 meV – 5 eV) IR spectroscopy. Details of our facilities, research, and recent publications can be found at http://recfi.snu.ac.kr.
The postdoctoral researcher will participate in ongoing spectroscopy studies on correlated materials, especially 4d and 5d transition metal oxides, and topological materials. She/He will work with graduate students and have ample opportunities to work with other CCES members. We expect that she/he will eventually develop her/his own vibrant research projects. We strongly encourage female scientists to apply for the positions.This position will be open until we identify qualified candidates.
- Candidates should have a background in correlated and/or topological physics, THz or Infrared spectroscopy, as reflected by the publication record.
- Candidate must demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills in English.
- Competitive salary, which would be set as per the experience level.
- Guaranteed furnished university apartment at an economical price.
- The positions are initially for two years but can be extended upon satisfactory performance.
- The candidate with outstanding track record can be appointed as a research assistant professor.
- Ample opportunities for in-house and international collaborations.
- Detailed terms and conditions are negotiable.
Applications should include
- A curriculum vitae including a full list of publications
- A research proposal: statement of research purpose
- Contact details of at least three academic referees
Applications should be directly emailed to Prof. Tae Won Noh - firstname.lastname@example.org .
