    Two Postdoc positions in advanced electron microscopy of oxide heterostructure interfaces and in-situ TEM study
    Announcement date: 18 January 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    Postdoc Position #1

    Novel phenomena and functionalities at artificial oxide heterointerfaces have been attracting extensive scientific attention in both materials science and fundamental condensed matter physics. The interplay between degrees of freedom at interfaces of complex oxides could lead to exotic and unexpected states of matter.

    Erich Schmid institute (ESI), Austrian Academy of Sciences, is seeking one postdoctoral fellow to join the electron microscopy group and to carry out investigations on the oxide heterostructure interfaces, e.g. ferroelectric-ferromagnetic interfaces etc...The project is primarily focused on the atomic-resolution study of oxide thin film interfaces and chemical non-stoichiometry effects by carrying out advanced electron microscopy and spectroscopy analyses, complemented by XSTM and property measurements, in order to clarify the effects of defects, i.e. oxygen vacancies, on the properties of such hetero-interfaces in a quantitative way. Understanding the atomic and electronic structures of heterointerfaces is crucial to elucidate the new functionality, electronic and magnetic properties these oxide hetero-interfaces demonstrate, and it is also important for clarifying the fundamental physical mechanisms pertaining to complex systems. 

    Position is available for 20 months.

    Postdoc Position #2

    The second Postdoc will mainly carry out in-situ atomic resolution investigations on the oxide /nano-materials phase transition using in-situ heating- and electrical biasing-holder. The project is primarily focused on the oxide phase transition mechanism, such as metal-insulator transition (MIT) and structural evolution, by performing the atomic-resolution observation via electron microscopy and spectroscopy analysis, complemented with other measurements.

     Position is available for two years. 

    Start date:  at the earliest possible date or upon agreement.

    Requirements

    The candidate should have a PhD degree in materials science or physics. The successful candidate should have a strong background in electron microscopic and/or spectroscopic techniques (HRTEM/ STEM, EDXS, and EELS etc.) and should have applied them previously towards studying materials. He/she should have demonstrated a good track-record of disseminating experimental results to the scientific community. Previous experience in studying oxide heterostructures films by EELS will be an asset. Furthermore, she/he should be self-motivated, and speak fluent English and enjoy scientific teamwork.

    Postdoctoral positions
    Announcement date: 08 January 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    The successful candidates will have the opportunity to gather experiences in different microscopic techniques for heterogeneous catalysis. In heterogeneous catalysis, the catalytic conversion happens at the surface of a solid and is influenced by the presence of defects. The local geometric and electronic contributions of these local alterations from the ideal structure are difficult to describe by common surface and bulk averaging methods. 

    Requirements

    We are looking for highly motivated scientists with conceptual skills, who can work independently, and are able to adopt new methods quickly. Required qualifications include a PhD in chemistry, materials science, or physics. A strong proven research background in electron microscopy or X-ray microscopy is mandatory. In addition, knowledge in heterogeneous catalysis is advantageous.

Alongside this we will monitor receptor dynamics and diffusion to describe how the cytoskeleton influences receptor behaviour and to investigate the receptor specific actin binding proteins and signalling pathways that drive this behaviour. In this work we will focus on two major classes of receptors: G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) and receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs).
