Description of the offer :

We are pleased to announce the opening of a PhD position in theoretical condensed matter in the Institute of Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz to work with the spintronics theory groups INSPIRE (Jairo Sinova) and TWIST (Karin Everschor-Sitte) on topics such as antiferromagnetic spintronics, skyrmions, and topological matter.The physics institute and the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center (SPICE) provides a stimulating environment due to an active workshop program and a broad range of research activities.


The prospective group member must hold a MSc or equivalent diploma. A background in theoretical techniques in condensed matter physics is required. Candidates interested and/or experienced in spintronics, magnetization dynamics, the physics of antiferromagnetics or skyrmions, and micromagnetic modelling are highly suited for this opportunity. Programming experience is desired.
