Postdoctoral Position in New Platforms with Quantum Materials

The position is focused on exploiting the recent advances of Prof. Burch in Weyl semimetals and the discovery of RuCl3 for Modulation Doping. The postdoc will lead our efforts to create new platforms in quantum simulation, optical and electrical sensors using quantum materials. This will build on our groups unique cleanroom in a glovebox, modulation doping in 2D materials, and our graphene electrical multiplex sensors (GEMS).

Unique Opportunity for a Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston College: The BC physics department is a highly collaborative environment, entirely focused on Condensed Matter Research. The department has 18 active faculty working at the forefront of solid-state research in quantum materials, topology, biosensing, superconductivity, plasmonics, 2D materials, magnetism, quantum information, and computing. This includes cutting edge experimental techniques such as scanning NV, STM, MBE, NSOM, Crystal Growth, broadband optoelectronics, and spectroscopy.

Prof. Burch is a world leader in 2D materials, strong correlations, topology, and sensors. His group is a unique environment with abilities ranging from broadband FTIR, photocurrent, low Temperature/ high magnetic field Raman, transport, and tunneling. His group has built a one-of-a-kind “cleanroom in a glovebox” enabling all 2D heterostructure fabrication in an inert atmosphere with a vacuum suitcase to transfer materials between various experimental setups, including the glovebox, MBE and the photocurrent/Raman/transport setups.
