The Multifunctional Ferroic Materials groupof Prof. Manfred Fiebig at ETH Zürich is seeking a physicist for a
Postdoc position in terahertz spectroscopy of correlated oxides
The goal of the projectis to explore the time-resolved response of systems with strong electronic correlations like superconductors, multiferroics, topological insulators or heavy-fermion systems using terahertz radiation for the generation or detection of excited states. This will also involve the use of femtosecond lasers in the optical range. Evaluation of the observed dynamics will be done in close collaboration with theory groups.
The successful candidatehas a strong background in terahertz generation and spectroscopy and is interested in working as a team player in an interdisciplinary environment at the interface between optics and condensed-matter physics. Candidates are highly motivated, self-organized, creative, displaying initiative and used to thinking sideways. If you like to work on open-ended problems with an urge for understanding phenomena at their roots; if you like to work and think interdisciplinarily and if you feel a fascination for what you can do with light you should apply. The tentative starting date for this position is January 2017.
