PhD Position in Ultrafast Control of Superconductivity in Spin-ladder Compounds

A new opening PhD position in condensed matter physics is available at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Applications will be evaluated on a continuous basis.

The Ultrafast Dynamics Group (Prof. Steven Johnson) in the Department of Physics of ETH Zrich has an open PhD position as part of a new Ambizione project. PhD position in ultrafast control of superconductivity in spin-ladder compounds

The aim of this project is to investigate the superconducting phase in spin-ladder compounds using ultrafast optical and x-ray techniques. In these materials, superconductivity arises at low temperatures and under pressure. Our goal is to probe and control such a superconducting phase using low frequency THz light pulses, with additional x-ray measurements performed at large scale x-ray facilities. This Ambizione funded project will be based in Prof. Steven Johnson's Ultrafast Dynamics Group at ETH Zrich and developed under Dr. Elsa Abreu's leadership. X-ray measurements will take place at large scale facilities both in Switzerland and abroad.

The ideal candidate holds a Master's degree preferably in physics, alternatively in material sciences. Solid knowledge of condensed matter physics is required, previous experience with ultrafast optical or x-ray experiments is a definite plus. The candidate must demonstrate proficiency in oral and written English and must be enthusiastic, creative and self-motivated. This PhD position is full time, with possible starting dates from January 2019 onwards.
