The School of Physics at the University of Bristol is looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher within its Correlated Electron Systems research group. This postdoctoral position is part of a EPSRC funded project to investigate ‘Competing Orders and Superconductivity in Cuprate Superconductors’. The position is specifically focussed on measurements of transport and thermodynamic properties of cuprates in very high magnetic field and under hydrostatic pressure. Experiments will be performed both in Bristol and at various high magnetic field facilities. You will work in close co-operation with other members of the team.

You should have a Ph.D. in Physics, and extensive experience with one or more of the experimental techniques relevant to the project. These include electrical transport measurements in high magnetic field, precision measurement of heat capacity or magnetic susceptibility, high pressure techniques (piston-cylinder or anvil cells). You should also have extensive research experience in studying the fundamental physics of superconductors. Further details of skills required and details of how to apply are available on request.

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities, especially from women and other groups currently under-represented in our department.
