HOURS PER WEEK39
Davis Group research concentrates upon exotic many-body states of electronic, magnetic and atomic quantum matter http://davis-group-quantum-matter-research.ie/ with a focus on direct experimental visualization or perception of the quantum phenomena. Systems under study include superconductors, Bose condensates, heavy fermions, ferromagnetic topological insulators, Dirac and Weyl semimetals, magnetic monopole fluids, quantum spin liquids and exciton fluids.
Davis Group will operate as a single research unit using a suite of complementary instruments in two ultralow vibration laboratories in the Kane Building at University College Cork (IE) and in the Beecroft Building at the University of Oxford (UK). Post-Doctoral Researchers based at UCC will carry out research at both sites.
The ideal candidate will have a combination of specialized knowledge, skills and successful experience in several of the following research areas:
- Sub-Kelvin Refrigeration
Concepts, operation and maintenance of sub-kelvin 3He-refrigerators and 3He-4He dilution refrigerators, based on both liquid 4He and cryofree cryostats.
- Ultra-low Vibration Techniques
Concepts, operation and maintenance of ultra-low vibration experiments, including control of mechanical, acoustic, cabling, vacuum-line, and cryogenic noise.
- High-field Superconducting Magnets
Concepts, operation and maintenance of persistent superconducting magnets at fields up to 20 Tesla.
- Instrument Design and Fabrication
Principles of, and experience with, scientific instrument design; project management, CAD tools, prototyping, machining, assembly, integration, testing and operation of custom built instruments.
- Spectroscopic Imaging Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
Concepts, operation and maintenance of low temperature spectroscopic imaging STM including, quasiparticle interference imaging of correlated metals, topological surface states and superconducting quasiparticles.
- Superconducting Quantum Inference Devices & Qubits
Concepts and operation of Josephson junctions, SQUIDS and superconducting qubits.
- Quantum Matter Theory
Knowledge and experience of contemporary theory for topological superconductors, Bose condensates, topological heavy fermions, ferromagnetic topological insulators, Dirac and Weyl semimetals, magnetic monopole fluids, quantum spin liquids and exciton fluids.
- Data Management, Analysis & Machine Learning
Knowledge and experience in high volume image-array data acquisition and management, development of custom software and machine learning techniques for advanced image-array data analysis.
