Ph.D. position in the field of Physics or Nanoelectronics (unconventional computing with nanomagnets).

This position is part of the EU-funded SpinENGINE project where researchers from the Universities of Ghent and Sheffield, ETH Zurich, and IBM jointly pursue a new approach to computing based on emergent properties, i.e., complex, non-linear behavior in tunable ensembles of nanomagnets.

Duties / Responsibilities

  1. To characterize artificial spin systems using lab-based measurement techniques such as magnetic force microscopy, transport set-ups, and magnetometry.
  2.  To model and simulate the behavior of artificial spin systems and relate these studies to experimental results.
  3. To actively apply for beamtime at international synchrotron facilities and take part in such measurements, e.g., X-PEEM.
  4. To actively take part in the SpinENGINE project (project meetings, workshops etc.).
  5. To actively take part in the guidance of master students in the group.
  6. To develop and disseminate research results on the subject through scientific publications.

Requirement / Qualifications

  1. Masters in Physics or Nanoelectronics
  2. Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  3. For candidates who are neither native English speakers nor from Scandinavia, the following tests can be used as documentation for English skills: TOEFL, Academic IELTS and Cambridge CAE or CPE.

Minimum scores are:

  • TOEFL: 600 (paper-based test), 92 (Internet-based test).
  • IELTS: 6.5, with no section lower than 5.5 (only Academic IELTS test accepted).
  • CAE/CPE: grade B or A.

Preferred selection criteria:

  1. Experience within the field of nanomagnetism.
  2. Experience with cleanroom micro- or nanofabrication.

Personal characteristics

  1. A high level of personal responsibility, initiative, and motivation.
  2. Demonstrated ability to work independently as well as collaboratively.
  3. Have a problem-solving mindset.
  4. Good organization and communication skills.
  5. Enjoy interdisciplinary research.

Fellowship Details

The position is subject to external funding through the EU Horizon 2020 project SpinENGINE.

Application Procedure: the applications can be made online-

The application must include:

  1. CV, certificates and diplomas.
  2. A short presentation of the motivation for a PhD study.
