Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI/SPring-8)【No17B002】

Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI/SPring-8) is currently seeking to recruit Post-Doctoral (PD) Fellows.

1. Seeking

PD fellows at Materials Structure Group I in Research & Utilization Division. One PD is recruited.

2. Research Area and Function

 The PD fellow will become a member of the Materials Structure Group I in Research & Utilization Division of JASRI, and will join the team studying a regularity of Heusler alloy in a quantitative way supported by Grant-in-aid for Scientific Research. The aim of the project at SPring-8 is to reveal a relation between structural and functional properties of Heusler alloys and related materials using various synchrotron techniques, e.g. X-ray diffraction, X-ray magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopy, hard X-ray photoemission spectroscopy, and X-ray anomalous fine structure, so far. Experience in X-ray diffraction, synchrotron radiation experiments or/and in studies of magnetic materials will be favorably considered, but not essential for candidates with aggressive and effective proposals contributing to the research field.
