Candidates with documented expertise in advanced synthesis and characterization of ferroic inorganic or hybrid materials, including a strong background in solid state chemistry/physics, are desired. Additional competence in the relationship between crystal structure and ferroic properties, hereunder polarization, strain and structure and dynamics of domains and domain walls, or computational materials science is an advantage. The successful candidate is creative, innovative and can work independently. He/she has good communication skills and is able to collaborate with other researchers in the project as well as international collaborators. The candidate must provide evidence of the ability to publish scientific high-quality papers.
