The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) is recruiting a new Low Temperature Research Faculty who will be member of the Millikelvin Facility. The Millikelvin Facility is part of NHMFL’s DC-Field Laboratory located in Tallahassee, Florida, which is home to the world’s highest DC-field resistive and superconducting magnets. The lab's mission is: "To provide the highest magnetic fields and necessary services for scientific research conducted by users from a wide range of disciplines, including physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, biology and geology.”
This position will require working in both a supportive and collaborative mode with users from around the world who utilize the dilution refrigerators, 3He cryostats and variable temperature inserts housed in the various superconducting, resistive and hybrid magnets of the NHMFL DC-Field Facility. The successful candidate will be expected to work in collaboration with other NHMFL scientists and technicians in the development and improvement of measurement techniques, sample holders and associated ultra-low temperature equipment needed for cutting-edge high magnetic field research into quantum matter. The successful candidate will also be expected to carry on an independent research effort, in parallel, that utilizes and improves upon the low temperature and high field measurement capabilities of the NHMFL. The NHMFL values a diverse workforce and is proactive in reaching out to under-represented groups in science - women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
This Low Temperature Research Faculty position will require a Ph.D. or highest-level terminal degree in Physics, Engineer, or a related field. This position will require working in both a supportive and collaborative mode with users from around the world who utilize the dilution refrigerators, 3He cryostats and variable temperature inserts housed in the various superconducting, resistive and hybrid magnets of the NHMFL DC-Field Facility.
Interested candidates can apply to Florida State University at https://jobs.fsu.edu and reference Job Opening ID 45519. Please attach your curriculum vitae, cover letter describing your research experience, and names and contact information of at least three references. The position will close on July 27, 2019. The Florida State University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer, committed to diversity in hiring, and a Public Records Agency. For additional information, please contact Ms. Bettina Roberson, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Florida State University, 1800 E. Paul Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32310-2740, 850-644-0855.
