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
- To characterize artificial spin systems using lab-based measurement techniques such as magnetic force microscopy, transport set-ups, and magnetometry.
- To model and simulate the behavior of artificial spin systems and relate these studies to experimental results.
- To actively apply for beamtime at international synchrotron facilities and take part in such measurements, e.g., X-PEEM.
- To actively take part in the SpinENGINE project (project meetings, workshops etc.).
- To actively take part in the guidance of master students in the group.
- To develop and disseminate research results on the subject through scientific publications.
Requirement / Qualifications
- Masters in Physics or Nanoelectronics
- Excellent written and oral communication skills.
- 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:
- Experience within the field of nanomagnetism.
- Experience with cleanroom micro- or nanofabrication.
- A high level of personal responsibility, initiative, and motivation.
- Demonstrated ability to work independently as well as collaboratively.
- Have a problem-solving mindset.
- Good organization and communication skills.
- Enjoy interdisciplinary research.
The period of employment is 4 years or 4 years with 25 % duty work.
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:
- CV, certificates and diplomas.
- A short presentation of the motivation for a PhD study.
- Name and address of two referees.
