Requires a Ph.D. in physics or in a closely related discipline. The candidate will be strongly motivated, demonstrate ability to conduct independent research and interact efficiently and fairly with colleagues.

Experience in the following areas are desired. Scanning probe microscopy. Infrared optical spectroscopy (or related fields, e.g. Raman, magnetic resonance, interferometry) in cryogenic environments. A background and interests in the physics of correlated electronic systems, surface and interference science, design and study of properties of artificial nano-structures is important. Experience in metal sputtering/evaporation or familiarity with characterization tools like SEM are useful. Knowledge in other areas like nano-fabrication, computer programming and electromagnetic simulations would be advantageous.

The main interests revolve around correlated electronic matter and the effects of reduced dimensionality on these systems. We investigate electronic properties at sub-micron scales and correlate them with macroscopic behavior (e.g. metal-insulator transitions, superconductivity). We will address these issues by doing nano-scale spectroscopy using a newly developed and customized scanning near-field optical microscope (SNOM) working in the 4K - 300 K temperature range. Members of the group will use this instrument but in the same time we want to develop and extend its capabilities in other directions: THz domain, time-resolved studies or other spatially and spectrally resolved measurements, e.g. tip enhanced Raman scattering.
