Assistant Professor Position in RIIS (due Mar. 31, 2017)

Assistant Professor Position in Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Science (RIIS) at Okayama University, Japan

One assistant professor is available in the Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Science (RIIS) at Okayama University. This Institute has recently been established at Okayama University to foster research in the areas of mathematical science, neutrino physics, solid state physics, materials science and chemistry, photosynthesis, and structural biology. RIIS is currently seeking a theoretical physicist (M/F) who can contribute to the research project ‘Quantum Physics for Superconductors’, in particular to an investigation of structure, magnetism and superconductivity in iron chalcogenide superconductors supervised by Prof. Harald O. Jeschke. Scientists applying for this position must be highly motivated and qualified.

The position is full time and the initial term is two years; however, depending on research outcomes, the possibility exists for extension until January 2022. Citizens both of Japan and of other countries are welcome to apply. The position is available immediately. Once a decision has been made, this offer will be closed.

Further information about the position is available by email from Prof. Harald O. Jeschke (jeschke@okayama-u.ac.jp). Applicants can access information from the web page http://www.physics.okayama-u.ac.jp/jeschke_homepage and the RIIS website: http://www.riis.okayama-u.ac.jp/en/.

Supporting documents (in English only) required for application:

  • Curriculum vitae (CV) (with contact address and e-mail address)
  • List of publications and grants
  • Statement of research interest and achievements (1-2 pages)
  • Vision/plans for future research (1-2 pages)
  • At least two references

All documents should be submitted by 31 March 2017, through the following website: http://reg.riis.okayama-u.ac.jp/cgi-bin/reg2.cgi/riis3. After your submission, please send Mr. Yasushi Katsube of the RIIS staff (katsube-y@adm.okayama-u.ac.jp) an email informing him that you have applied for a position and submitted the relevant documents.

Title: Hubbard heritage in undoped cuprates – and conjecture for finding new superconductors

Abstract:

Neutron Spectroscopy is a powerful technique to measure magnetic excitation spectra. I will present how neutron spectroscopy allow us to reach very detailed understanding of the 2D Heisenberg antiferromagnet and how this model is derived from the Hubbard model at half filling. This allowed establishing a unified one-band hubbard model for a series of undoped cuprates, and allowed developing a new theory that suggests fractionalization of spin-waves into deconfined spinons at high energy. In the second part I will show how neutron spectroscopy reveals similarities between cuprates and iron based superconductors and present a conjecture for how to find new superconductors with the aid of next generation neutron spectrometers (CAMEA), allowing spectroscopy from sub-mm3 crystals.
