Employment

El Baggari Lab - Postdoc Candidate opening

Our lab welcomes applications for postdoctoral fellow positions in the area of in situ scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) of quantum materials. We seek to visualize and control quantum phases of matter at the atomic scale using low temperature STEM coupled to in situ and ex situ electrical manipulation. This combination allows us to not only correlate atomic-scale insights with macroscopic electronic properties but also to induce novel phenomena in quantum materials.

We invite motivated applicants with a strong background in high-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy and a demonstrated experience in the analysis of microscopy/spectroscopy data for uncovering novel phenomena. The ideal candidate has experience in in situ transmission electron microscopy techniques (biasing/heating/strain/cryogenic) or strong interest in cryogenics, transport characterization, or micro/nanofabrication. A PhD in physics, applied physics, materials science, or similar fields is required.

The candidate will work closely with the PI at the interdisciplinary Rowland Institute and engage with the broad quantum research community at Harvard University. Our lab has a dedicated in situ TEM holder for custom low temperature experiments, a cryogenic system for ex situ characterization of TEM devices, and a suite of sample preparation tools. We make use of microscopy facilities at the Harvard Center for Nanoscale Systems and MIT.nano including aberration-corrected STEM, focused ion beams, additional TEM holders, and nanofabrication.

To apply, please send the following to ielbaggari@rowland.harvard.edu

  1. a cover letter describing your past research and a future research project you might want to perform in our lab (2 pages max)
  2. an academic CV
  3. contact information for 3 references
