Rese­arch assi­stant (post­doc) (m/f/d)

full-time job | limi­ted to 4 years | Ent­gelt­gruppe 13 TV-L FU | Refe­rence code: PhyKu_01/21

Work­ing field:

The posi­tion is assi­gned to the work­group of Prof. W. Kuch, which has expe­ri­ence inves­ti­ga­ting ultrat­hin magne­tic films, sur­faces, adsor­bed mole­cu­les, and nano­st­ruc­tures that may become rele­vant in a future spin-based elec­tro­nics. Besi­des uncon­ven­tio­nal spin struc­tures at sur­faces, the focus is also on spin and magne­tiza­tion dyna­mics. Expe­ri­ments are car­ried out both by labo­ra­tory-based tech­ni­ques as well as by using syn­chro­tron radia­tion.

Job descrip­tion:
The duties lin­ked to the posi­tion include rese­arch in the field of x-ray spec­tro­scopy of magne­tic mate­ri­als, in par­ti­cu­lar the active par­ti­ci­pa­tion in pro­ject A07 "Brid­ging the time sca­les bet­ween ultra­fast and pre­ces­sio­nal magne­tiza­tion dyna­mics" of the trans­re­gio­nal col­la­bo­ra­tive rese­arch cen­ter 227 "Ultra­fast Spin Dyna­mics", the plan­ning and imple­men­ta­tion of third­party-fun­ded pro­jects for the inves­ti­ga­tion of magne­tic lay­ers, two-dimen­sio­nal mate­ri­als, and mole­cu­lar adsor­ba­tes by syn­chro­tron radia­tion, as well as tea­ching at the phy­sics depart­ment. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date is respon­si­ble for the pre­pa­ra­tion and orga­ni­za­tion of beam­ti­mes at the Ber­lin syn­chro­tron radia­tion source BESSY II or at other syn­chro­tron radia­tion sources. Expe­ri­men­tal methods employed are sta­tic and time-resol­ved x-ray absorp­tion and reflec­tance spec­tro­scopy, pho­toelec­tron emis­sion micro­scopy as well as stan­dard methods from sur­face sci­ence. Apti­tude pro­vi­ded, a ger­man “habi­li­ta­tion” may be pur­sued.



A doc­to­ral degree (PhD) in phy­sics is requi­red.


Expe­ri­ence with x-ray spec­tro­scopy of magne­tic laye­red sys­tems, two-dimen­sio­nal mate­ri­als, or adsor­bed mole­cu­les as well as magne­tiza­tion dyna­mics is desi­red. 
App­li­ca­ti­ons must include a com­plete CV, an abs­tract (max. one page) of the PhD the­sis, list of publi­ca­ti­ons, as well as names and addres­ses (pos­tal and e-mail) of two or three per­sons wil­ling to pro­vide con­fi­den­tial let­ters of refe­rence. Only com­plete app­li­ca­ti­ons will be con­si­de­red.

For fur­ther infor­ma­tion, please con­tact Herr Prof. Dr. Wolf­gang Kuch ( / +49 30 838 52098).

How to ap­ply:

All app­li­ca­ti­ons (inclu­ding a short cover let­ter out­lining your back­ground, a detailed CV inclu­ding pos­si­bly some refe­ren­ces, and all rele­vant cer­ti­fi­ca­tes) quo­ting the refe­rence code should be direc­ted no later than Decem­ber 14th, 2020 pre­fer­a­bly elec­tro­ni­cally in one PDF-file to: Frau Marion Badow: oder per Post an die
