A new postdoctoral position is available immediately in the area of ultrafast dynamics and optics of magnetic materials. Start date is flexible. The position will be part of the materials science and ultrafast thermal science group of Prof. Richard B. Wilson, and the nano-chiral optics group of Prof. Luat Vuong at the University of California-Riverside. Experimental research will be done in close collaboration with the computational Materials Science group of Prof. Sinisa Coh.

Job description: The postdoctoral associate will design and execute ultrafast pump/probe measurements and optical spectroscopy experiments of magneto-optic and spin thermoelectric properties of magnetic materials. Expertise in the following areas are desirable but not necessarily required: pump/probe experiments, spintronics, design of electrical or optical characterization experiments, materials synthesis, nanofabrication, magnetism, plasmonics. The postdoc will: (i) Perform and analyze optical and THz pump/probe experiments. (ii) Perform optical spectroscopy measurements of magnetic materials. (iii) Use physical vapor deposition and nanofabrication techniques to synthesize samples. (iv) Write manuscripts and publish work in high impact journals. (v) Assist in the mentoring of graduate students. (vi) Attend conferences and present work.

To apply, please send a full CV and concise description of your expertise to Prof. Richard Wilson at Applications received before Jan. 5th will be considered.
