Lab/Company : Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC)

Location : Barcelona, Spain

Yearly income : ~23'000 EUR (before taxes)


Expiration : 2023-07-31 [YYYY-MM-DD]

Description of the offer :

One PhD position will be available at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) in the recently funded M.ERA-NET consortium project MUST: Materials for Ultraefficient chiral SpinTronics. The project will focus on developing ferrimagnetic nitride and oxide thin films exhibiting chiral interfacial interactions. Based on these materials, we will fabricate spintronic devices operating with domain walls, skyrmions, and spin waves for magnetic data applications. The outcome is expected to offer more sustainable and energy-efficient solutions to the current CMOS and prospective post-CMOS memory and logic technologies. The successful candidate preferentially has prior experience in fabricating magnetic thin films by magnetron sputtering. Knowledge of electrical and optical characterization of magnetic materials, device fabrication in cleanroom facilities, and any other relevant spintronic-related research experience will be valued. How to apply: Interested candidates should send their CVs (only pdf files), a short statement of purpose, and the names of two referees to Can Onur Avci (cavci@icmab.es). Applications will be evaluated as received. Conditions: The applicant must hold (or expect to obtain by 31/07/2023) an MSc. degree in Physics, Materials Science, or related disciplines. Contract duration: 36 months Salary: ~23 k€ (yearly, gross) Research team website: https://spinmad.icmab.es/
