The candidate will be working on spin transport and magnetization dynamics in complex magnetic heterostructures in the Magnetic Films Group in the Materials Sciences Division. Emphasis will be on thin film deposition, device fabrication using lithographic techniques, structural, magnetic, and transport measurements, and numerical simulations using micromagnetic approaches. The successful candidate is expected to develop and execute independent research projects. Towards this end we will consider projects within a wide range of topics as they relate to magnetic heterostructures.

We expect you to have:

Knowledge, Skills and Experience:

  • Ph.D. in physics, materials science, electrical engineering or similar with emphasis on condensed matter physics phenomena related to magnetism.
  • A strong experimental and theoretical background in magnetism, thin film deposition, lithographic processing, magnetometry and transport measurements magnetization is desired.
  • Experience with experimental measurement development and numerical simulations using micromagnetic approaches are highly desirable.

The candidate is expected to think and work independently and conduct research in a highly interdisciplinary environment of physicists and materials scientists. Furthermore, the candidate is expected to disseminate research results regularly via publications and presentations.
