OFFER DESCRIPTION

[Laboratory]
Materials Dynamics Group
Photon Science Research Division
RIKEN SPring-8 Center
(Group Director: Alfred Baron)

[Research Field]
The focus of the laboratory is the dynamics of materials on meV energy scales (THz frequencies) and atomic length scales, as measured using inelastic x-ray scattering. We have recently completed commissioning a uniquely powerful beamline for inelastic x-ray scattering (BL43LXU) that provides unprecedented capability to measure both atomic dynamics and electronic excitations with high resolution. Present areas of investigation include atomic dynamics of correlated materials, superconductors, and liquids, as well as linewidths and thermal effects in simpler materials, and elastic properties in extreme conditions. We also continue development of instrumentation, especially x-ray optics, and are now working on a new type of spectrometer for both RIXS and NRIXS in the 5 to 15 keV region of the spectrum.

[Job title and Job description]
Job Title:
Postdoctoral Researcher or Research Scientist

Job description:
Possible directions for work include investigation of atomic dynamics in complex materials, liquid dynamics, and thermal effects in simpler materials. In addition, it is expected the successful candidate will participate in development of the present facilities, and/or contribute to the construction and testing of the new RIXS/NRIXS spectrometer. Extensive off-line facilities are available, in addition to the beamlines of a premier operating synchrotron (SPring-8) and free-electron laser (SACLA).

[Work location]
Branch and address:
RIKEN SPring-8 Center (1-1-1 Kouto, Sayo-cho, Sayo-gun, Hyogo 679-5148, Japan)

[Start of Employment]
negotiable
