The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), in the frame of the project "Deciphering the workings of molecule intercalated iron chalcogenides" (DOMINION), funded under the Office of Naval Research (ONR) Global (ONR Announcement #N00014-17-S-B001), is seeking to recruit one (1) post-doctoral researcher.
DOMINION provides an intimate engagement of syntheses and characterisation for a wide range of layered iron-based chalcogenide compounds. The challenges set out here will be tackled through a cross-disciplinary, collaborative initiative between European (Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas, Greece & Warsaw University of Technology, Poland) and US DOE scientists (Brookhaven National Lab, NY & National High Magnetic Field Lab, FL). A comprehensive range of research activities, engaging young researchers (PhD and postdoc levels) with senior scientists, is organized to facilitate a resource-sharing culture and tackle open questions.
The successful post-doctoral candidate will focus on the fundamental physics and chemistry of inter-atomic interactions of solid-state iron-chalcogenide magnets and superconductors, made up of functional molecular components with nanoscale dimensions. For this, user-facility photon and neutron science US DOE labs, with their advanced analytical instrumentation, optimized for high -flux/ -resolution/ -data throughput, unavailable anywhere else in the world, will be utilized to generate key insights on how (structural and electronic / magnetic) correlations at the atomic level of matter are built and influence the superconducting electrons to pair-up.
