We are seeking to appoint a Post-doctoral Research Associate immediately to work on an EPSRC-supported electron vortex beam project for a 12-month period.
You will work on a number of aspects of the project, and the responsibilities will include developing and testing new methods of generating electron vortex beams, studying their physical characteristics as well as applications. Electron vortex beam research is a relatively young research area which has the potential to not only deepen our fundamental understanding of the quantum physics of angular momentum, but also their applications in various areas, particularly in the area of electron microscopy and spectroscopy of nanomaterials.
The successful candidate will have, or is expected to soon obtain, a PhD in Physics, Materials Science or related science disciplines. Strong expertise in one or more of the areas of vortex beam research, electron microscopy, quantum-mechanics of electron-sample interaction or nano-plasmonics and metamaterials is desired.
Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Jun Yuan or Professor Mohamed Babiker (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com ).
