Postdoctoral Position in Quantum Materials

The postdoc will focus on the discovery and understanding of novel phases of matter. Their particular focus will be twisted 2D materials 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. They will work jointly in the groups of Prof. Burch and Prof. Ma.

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 a 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.

Prof. Ma has just joined the Boston College faculty, after completing her postdoc in the group of Prof. Jarillo-Herrero. She is well known for groundbreaking discoveries in Weyl semimetals, twisted 2D materials, and optoelectronic sensing with graphene. She is developing a one of a kind laboratory for quantum and 2D materials with capabilities in fabrication, transport, photocurrent, and scanning probe.
