A new postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Applied Physics, Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan). The project aims to achieve the lowest possible lattice thermal conductivity in higher manganese silicide-based and Fe-based intermetallic systems via careful tuning of nano/micro-structures. The project involves experimental studies on sample preparation, crystal structure analyses, transport property measurements and SEM/TEM observations as well as computations of electronic structures and machine learning.
