Postdoctoral Position in Quantum Materials

The postdoc will focus on the discovery and understanding of novel phases of matter. Their particular focus will be on heterostructurres including semimetal, superconducting, and magnetic 2D materials. This includes investigating a range of emergent correlated and topological phases using a suite of spectroscopic optical and electrical probes.

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.
