4 year phd position in high magnetic field scanning tunneling microscopy studies of pnictide superconductivity. Low Temperature Laboratory of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (LBTUAM)

Más información

PhD position in experimental Condensed Matter Physics in the field of local studies of unconventional superconductors under extreme conditions. The PhD students will be hired under the European ERC Starting Grant project PNICTEYES.

We are looking for highly motivated PhD students with a strong interest in experimental condensed matter physics. The PhD projects will be focused on novel very high magnetic field studies of electronic correlations behind ordered phases in the normal and superconducting states of pnictide superconductors. The PhD will contribute developing state of the art scanning tunneling microscopes able to operate at temperatures down to a few miliKelvin and magnetic fields above 30 Tesla.

The Low Temperature Laboratory of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (LBTUAM) operates now several state of the art dilution refrigerator STM with magnetic fields up to 22 T. Within ERC PNICTEYES project, new instruments for very high magnetic field STM are being developed and built. The high field STM will be operated up to 22 T using superconducting magnets at a newly built vibration free laboratory dedicated to the ERC project at UAM. The student will also do experiments above 30 T in international high magnetic field facilities (www.emfl.eu and https://nationalmaglab.org/). The PhD student will be integrated within the stimulating scientific environment of the Maria de Maeztu Condensed Matter Physics Center (IFIMAC). This counts many experimental and theoretical research groups of top international level working on new materials. State of the art helium liquefaction facilities are provided within the Campus of Excellence UAM+CSIC. The PhD student will be also involved in active international collaborations with material and theory groups.
