Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics at
                    Johns Hopkins University

Candidates are sought for a postdoctoral position in the group of
Professor Collin Broholm in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the
Johns Hopkins University. We study the dynamics of strongly fluctuating
condensed matter systems using neutron scattering techniques. Systems
under investigation include low dimensional and frustrated magnets with
spin liquid phases, strongly correlated metals, and materials with unusual
lattice dynamic properties. One theme being explored is quantum
criticality at phase transitions induced by a magnetic field or pressure
at low temperatures. We are also actively studying impurities in strongly
fluctuating systems. Experiments are mainly conducted at the NIST Center
for Neutron Research where the successful candidate will be stationed.
A Ph. D. degree in Physics or a related area is a requirement and prior
experience in one or more of the following areas will be an advantage: 
neutron scattering, low temperature physics, instrument development, and
single crystal growth. Interest and achievements in relevant scientific
areas will also be considered as will the ability of the candidate to
mentor graduate students, and to function productively at a major
scientific facility. Applications should include a curriculum vita, a
brief statement of research interests, a list of publications, and contact
information for three references. The Johns Hopkins University is an
affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Application received prior
to January 1 2001 will receive full consideration.  Submit applications to
Prof. Collin Broholm; c/o Lonnie D. Clark; The Johns Hopkins University; 
366 Bloomberg; 3400 N. Charles St.; Baltimore, MD 21218.
