Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Greven group in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota/Twin Cities invites applications for a post-doctoral associate position. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Professor Greven. The group investigates the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of select quantum materials. This materials class embodies many of the most fundamental contemporary questions pertaining to the quantum behavior of interacting electrons. Research includes bulk single crystal growth and characterization, neutron and X-ray scattering, as well as charge transport and nonlinear magnetic response experiments.
