Description of the offer :

Magnetic skyrmions are swirling spin textures which are foreseen as candidate as infromation carriers for future memory devices due o their compact size and current induced displacement. In this context, we have been recently awarded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to conduct an application oriented project on skyrmions, together with the SPINTEC laboratory (coordinator, Grenoble), the UMPhy laboratory (Palaiseau) and ForschungZentrum (Jülich). The project objective is to obtain room temperature stable skyrmions with low radius and control their propagation with electric current/field. The skyrmion hosting material will be provided by collaborators.

The post doc will focus on techniques to observe and control skyrmions using MFM, and magneto-transport setups. We are looking for a talented and motivated postdoc research associate interested in experimental condensed matter physics. The project has a secured 18-month financial support (extendable). If you are interested do not hesitate to contact us (see email below).
