The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) is conducting a search for a new Research Faculty member in its DC Field Magnet Facility. This facility is the world's highest field DC magnet laboratory, located in Tallahassee, Florida. The lab's mission is: "To provide the highest magnetic fields and necessary services for scientific research performed by visiting and in-house researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including physics, chemistry, materials science, engineering, biology and geology.”
The candidate selected for this position will work alongside other NHMFL research faculty and technicians in the development and improvement of measurement techniques and associated instrumentation needed for cutting edge, high magnetic field research. The successful applicant will also have the option to pursue interests in an independent research effort that would also utilize and improve the capabilities of the NHMFL user facility.
Ph.D. in physics, engineering or related field with a demonstrated record of achievement in research.
The search committee welcomes applicants with a background in high field experiments and those searching to work in a strongly collaborative research environment. Particular emphasis will be placed on candidates that will help the NHMFL address its desire for additional talent in the use of dilution refrigerators and 3He cryostats as well as transport, dilatometry, magnetization, susceptibility and high pressure techniques, but all relevant skill sets will be considered.
About National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world. Every year, more than a thousand scientists from dozens of countries come to use our unique magnets with the support of highly experienced staff scientists and technicians. Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation and the State of Florida, these researchers use our facilities for free, probing fundamental questions about materials, energy and life. Their findings result in more than 400 scientific publications a year in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature, Science and Physical Review Letters.
