Postdoctoral research position with Prof. Tetsuya Aruga in Kyoto University

Starting date: Apr. 1, 2012 or thereafter

A postdoctoral position is available in the Surface Physical Chemistry Group within the Graduate School of Science at Kyoto University. The project will involve the application of ARPES and spin-resolved ARPES to reveal spin-polarized electronic states at surfaces and interfaces of semiconductors.

The applicant should have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or in a related field, and a background in surface science and/or ARPES of solids and surfaces. Experiences in other methodologies including LEED, SXRD and DFT calculations are highly appreciated.

Interested candidates should email a CV, three representative publications, and the names, affiliations, and email addresses of two references to:

Tetsuya Aruga, Prof. Dr.
Department of Chemistry
Kyoto University
