The applicant will be working on one on-going research project. The project deals with the study of superconductivity combined to Rashba spin-orbit coupling in 2D crystalline monolayers [1]. Such ultimately thin superconducting atomic monolayers will be used as a platform to study controlled weak disorder effects on 2D superconductivity or to induce 2D topological superconductivity [2,3]. This project is funded by the ANR RODESIS (Projet-ANR-16-CE30-0011).

- The applicant will work in close collaboration with PhD students, master students, permanent CNRS researchers and engineers.
- The main experimental investigations will be carried out with a state-of-the-art STM working at 300mK in high-magnetic field under UHV.
- A combined STM/AFM equipped with a vectorial magnet (2T vertical, 1T horizontal) working at 1.5K under UHV is currently being developed and will be used once completely set-up. A VT-STM coupled to a preparation chamber will be available for growth studies.
- The group is in close contact with leading theoreticians in the studied fields.
- The laboratory has very strong technical capabilities (TEM, SEM, cleanroom, cryogenics, electronics, machine shop…).


- We are looking for a talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher interested in this experimental condensed matter physics project.
- The applicant should have a PhD in experimental condensed matter physics
- The applicant should have an excellent experimental background either in superconductivity or scanning tunneling spectroscopy at low temperature.
- PhD student or master trainee supervision
- Analysis / modeling of scientific data
- The candidate must master the writing of a scientific article

Work Context

The applicant will work at the Institute of Nanosciences of Paris, a mixed university/CNRS research laboratory located at Sorbonne university. He/She will be integrated in the team "Spectroscopy of novel quantum states" under the direct supervision of Christophe Brun and Tristan Cren. This team is specialized in the spectroscopy of low-dimensional superconducting systems, correlated materials, mesoscopic nanostructures or topological matter.
