Research Fellow in scanning probe microscopy and density functional theory
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7086408 (Ref #: EPSPA1038)
- Posting Date: Oct 1, 2021
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in atomic resolution scanning probe imaging? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research-intensive Universities?
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work on the development of experimental and theoretical protocols and strategies for measurement and simulation of interatomic and intermolecular interactions using high resolution scanning probe experiments, and ab-inito simulation techniques.
You will have a PhD (or be close to completion) in Physics, and have experience in performing high resolution SPM experiments in ultra-high vacuum and low temperature, as well as experience performing ab-initio simulations using high performance computing clusters. You should also be familiar with current state of the art packages (e.g. FHI-AIMS) and have extensive Linux/command line and scripting experience.
