Description of the offer :

The Department of Magnetism @ HZDR (Germany) invites applications as PhD student (f/m) for investigation of magnetization dynamics in nanostructures with ferromagnetic/paramagnetic (FM/PM) interfaces in the framework of DFG-funded project "Spin dynamics in laterally patterned magnetic landscapes".

The three-years research program is to be realized in collaboration with the University of Augsburg and the Technical Federal University Santa Maria (Chile). We aim to understand the complex effect of structural disorder-induced magnetization patterns on the dynamic magnetic properties of embedded nanostructures with periodical FM/PM interfaces, addressing multi-magnon scattering, spin pumping at magnetic interfaces as well as various magnonic effects.The position will be available as soon as candidate is found.

Place of work: Dresden-Rossendorf
Working hours: 29 h/week

- thin film fabrication using magnetron sputtering, nanostructuring with electron beam lithography and ion irradiation
- magnetic characterization using magnetometry, magnetic microscopy imaging, micromagnetic simulations
- ferromagnetic resonance study of thin film bilayers and laterally patterned magnetic landscapes
- presentation of scientific results at conferences, publication in peer-reviewed journals
- writing a PhD dissertation

- Master or equivalent degree in physics with magnetism background
- experience in thin film deposition, fabrication of nanostructures as - well as knowledge about ferromagnetic resonance technique are advantageous (but not obligatory)
- good communication skills
- good written English skills

We offer:
- high scientific professional networking as well as scientific excellence
- internationality and diversity
- interesting and diverse tasks, flexible working hours, salary based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund
- equality of opportunity and family-friendly structures, corporate health management
- attractive work and research terms in a highly motivated team

Kindly submit your completed application (including cover letter, CV, diplomas/transcripts, etc.) by 30 September 2018 only via Online application (https://www.hzdr.de/jobs) - Job-Id: 54/2018
