About the project

Magneto-ionic materials are a new class of materials that allow voltage control of magnetism by electrochemical effects. The aim of the work is to achieve a thorough understanding of magneto-ionic effects in nanostructured metal-metal oxide heterostructures with different electrolytes and sample geometries. Especially magneto-ionic effects on single nanowires and nanowire assemblies will be investigated that are promising for magnet-based sensor technologies and lab-on-chip devices.

Techniques will include preparation methods like electrodeposition and sputtering, lithography, electrochemical investigations and magnetic in situ methods (in situ anomalous Hall Effect, in situ ferromagnetic resonance). At the IFW Dresden we offer an excellent scientific infrastructure and supervision of PhD students. Film preparation as well as magnetic measurement methods are established. The subject will involve a team of scientists (electrochemists, physicists, material scientists) providing interdisciplinary expertise.


We are looking for a highly motivated and team-oriented candidate with a Master degree in physics, chemistry or material science. The candidate should be willing to work proactively and with a high level of scientific curiosity on this interdisciplinary project. Fundamental knowledge on one or more of the topics of thin films, magnetism and electrochemistry are of benefit. We expect good language skills in English.
