Development of new nano-SQUID magnetic sensor devices with single spin sensitivity for study of topological states of matter and vortex dynamics in superconductors


PostDoc position in the department of Department of Condensed Matter Physics at Weizmann institute of Science in the group of Eli Zeldov for 3 years. The research will be carried out in the Superconductivity Lab The project focuses on development of novel nanoscale SQUIDs that reside on the apex of a sharp tip and can measure local magnetic fields with very high sensitivity and spatial resolution that could detect the magnetic field of a single electron spin. We incorporate the nano-SQUID-on-tip in STM-like scanning probe microscope for investigation of topological states of matter, quantum magnetism, and dynamics of individual vortices in superconductors. Funding is available for three years. Contract is for one year, and will be renewed with good progress. The ideal candidate should have a demonstrated potential for excellence in research and a strong background in superconductivity; expertise in cryogenic systems, transport and magnetization measurements, UHV deposition methods, and computer programming; design and construction of electronic and mechanical systems, materials science, scanning probe systems, image processing, and computationally intensive data analysis; comfort working in a collaborative setting. Interested candidates should send CV and list of publications to
