Postdoctoral Researcher in CREST project, NIMS (Japan)

Affiliation: International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics, National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS)

Job Summary: CREST project (Leader: Takao Mori) “Development of novel magnetic semiconductor thermoelectric materials and power generation devices”, postdoctoral fellow.  Synthesis of magnetic semiconductor bulk and possibly thin film samples, and evaluation and analysis of thermoelectric properties. As examples of magnetic semiconductor thermoelectric materials, see APEX 6, 043001 (2013), Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 54, 12909 (2015).

Qualification: Applicants must have or be awarded soon a PhD. Solid state experimental physics is a recommended field, and while materials science or solid state chemistry fields are also acceptable, a strong background in physical properties interpretation is required. Thin film growth experience is not required, but good experience in thermoelectric research is recommended.

Sufficient fluency in spoken/written English (or Japanese)

Arrival Time: As soon as possible after April 1, 2016.

Term: 1 year with possibility of renewal with evaluation (in any case for a maximum of 3 years)

Work Place: National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS)

1-1 Namiki, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-0044, Japan

Salary / Supply  followed by NIMS regulation: at present 376,000 yen/month (net salary)
