Position Summary
Experimental Condensed Matter
The condensed matter spectroscopy group at Princeton University invites applications for multiple postdoctoral or more senior research positions to work on angle-resolved-photoemission (ARPES) and Scanning Tunneling (STS) studies on topological insulators, topological superconductors, Weyl fermion materials, correlated superconductors in combination with MBE growth and microscopy measurements. The successful candidate will carry out experiments both at Princeton University and several national laboratories and will be expected to play a significant role in carrying out spectroscopy and microscopy measurements (STM/STS) in combination with thin-film growth on a variety of systems. Some exposure to first-principle band calculations (FP/DFT) or other forms of electronic structure calculations is also desired.

Appointments are typically for one year with the possibility of extensions up to three years upon mutual agreement.

To apply for these positions please log on to: There, you will be asked to upload (1) a recent CV, (2) publications list, (3) a research statement, and (4) contact information for four referees, who will be asked to provide letters of support.

Consideration of the applications will begin on May 1, 2016 and will continue until the positions are filled. This position is subject to the university's background check policy.

Essential Qualifications
The successful candidate will have a strong research record and must have a Ph.D.

Preferred Qualifications
Experience in UHV, synchrotron-based end-stations, beamline optics, detector hardware, electronics, and/or data acquisition technique is desirable, as are programming skills. Additionally MBE and STM/Microscopy/nano-ARPES/spin-ARPES skills would be a plus.
