Doctoral position: Solid State Sciences 571 views

The DyNaMat (Dynamics of Functional Nanomaterials) research group of the department of Solid State Sciences at Ghent University invites applications for a Doctoral position. The group focuses its research on functional magnetic materials and the fast magnetization dynamics in nanostructures.

Research topics:
  • Skyrmions and Chiral Systems
  • Nano Magnetic Logic
  • Thermal Magnetic Noise
  • Magnetic Nanoparticles
  • Domain Wall Dynamics in Antiferromagnets

About the position:

  • Applications are open to talented and highly motivated PhD candidate to join the team to work on the new SpinENGINE project.
  • This vacancy is a part of a wider European funded consortium composed of five partners: UGent, NTNU Trondheim, Sheffield University, ETH Zurich and IBM Zurich. The SpinENGINE project aims to create a new approach to computing based on emergent properties, i.e., complex, non-linear behavior in tunable ensembles of nanomagnets.
  • This student will concentrate on the numerical modeling of such nanomagnet ensemble.
  • He/she will explore the emergent behavior in these systems and provide support for the design and interpretation of experiments, based on extensive micromagnetic and statistical modeling.


  • Applicant must hold Master of Science degree in Physics or Engineering Physics.
  • Applicant to have a good track record (study results and/or publications).
  • Applicant must have programming skills and a strong interest in numerical modelling and scientific computing.
  • Applicant must have a basic knowledge of magnetic thin films, nanostructures and devices.
  • Applicant must possess strong analytical problem-solving skills (creative, critical, thinking out-of-the-box).
  • Applicant must be able to work independently and take initiative, yet you are also a team player.
  • Applicant must have excellent written and oral communication skills in English.
