Location:  Egham
Salary:  £35,931 starting salary per annum - including London Allowance
Closing Date:  Wednesday 12 May 2021
Interview Date:  To be confirmed
Reference:  0321-077

Full-Time, Fixed Term (for 24 months)

The Quantum Matter Group of the Department of Physics, Royal Holloway, University of London, invites applications for a two-year Post-Doctoral Research Associate position to work on neutron scattering from frustrated magnets. The role is funded by EPSRC. It is hoped that the candidate would be in post by 1st October 2021.

The post holder will engage in experimental research in the group of Professor Jon Goff, with the specific aim to investigate the role of disorder in frustrated magnetism, encompassing both classical and quantum spin liquids. It is anticipated that neutron scattering experiments will be performed at the ISIS Facility in the United Kingdom, the ILL in France, FRM II in Germany and SNS in the United States. This work is part of an ongoing collaboration with experimental and theoretical groups in Oxford and Cambridge.

The successful candidate will be required to carry out experimental and computational research in Condensed Matter Physics, present results at international conferences and in high impact journals and collaborate with UK and international institutions. Applicants should hold (or be close to obtaining) a Ph.D. in Physics and have a track record of high-quality research. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in neutron scattering, and in research fields relevant to this post. Strong computing and communication skills would be highly beneficial.

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and Heathrow Airport, and within commuting distance from London.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Professor Jon Goff at: jon.goff@rhul.ac.uk.
