Position Openings

The Electronic and Quantum Magnetism Unit currently searches for applicants in the following areas:

Graduate Students

Our unit is looking for motivated graduate students who are interested in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science and Engineering. Currently we have one opening in the direction of development of single-crystal quantum magnets. 

We conduct our research through in-lab setups, common facilities at OIST, and also national/international user facilities, such as the Advanced Photon Source, the Spallation Neutron Source, and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in USA. Our group utilizes a variety of probing techniques, covering essentially the full electro-magnetic spectral range in order to study correlated electrons and magnetism. The broad exposure of scientific research prepares students for future career opportunities in either academia or industry. 

Postdoctoral Researchers and/or Staff Scientists

We currently have one postdoctoral/staff scientist position open along the directions of:

1) Single-crystal quantum magnets development.

Senior postdocs with more than 5 years of research experience after Ph.D. can be considered in the rank of staff scientist. The initial appointment is one year which is expected to be continuously renewable up to three years. They are expected to be working closely with graduate students and other research specialists and collaborators.


We are currently looking for one technician who is an expert in any of the following topics: electronics, microwave instruments, mechancal design and construction, and optics. 

OIST Rotation Students

Interested graduate students should contact the Unit head (Prof. Feng) directly. Currently one available opening is along the direction of materials science and single crystal development.  

Research Intern Students

Our unit is capable to host one Research Intern student in the coming calendar year. Interested undergraduate students of various physical science majors from other universities should contact the Unit head (Prof. Feng) directly.  The formal application would be handled by the Graduate School of OIST.
