Postdoc positions in experimental condensed matter physics

Three post doc positions are open in the group of Professor Collin Broholm at the Institute for Quantum Matter of The Johns Hopkins University. Position 1 will focus on the development of time resolved methods in neutron scattering and prior experience with pump probe methods and/or microwaves will be an advantage. This position can be […]

Collin L. Broholm named a Moore Experimental Investigator

Collin Broholm, the Gerhard Dieke Professor of Physics and Astronomy, was named one of 19 new Moore Experimental Investigators in Quantum Materials. The five-year program from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation seeks to help physicists who experiments could help transform our understanding of quantum materials. Broholm will be awarded $1.8 million to fund his […]

Tyrel McQueen has been named a Sloan Research Fellow
