Postdoctoral Fellow

Magnetic Correlations in Artificial Spin Systems

Your tasks

  • To manufacture artificial spin systems using nanofabrication methods
  • To characterise the magnetic properties of the prepared samples with lab-based measurement techniques
  • To measure magnetic correlations in artificial spin systems with synchrotron X-Ray and neutron scattering methods, as well as X-Ray microscopy and low energy muon spectroscopy, at the Paul Scherrer Institute and worldwide
  • To relate the measured correlations to theoretical predictions of statistical models and Monte-Carlo simulations

Your profile

Excellent qualifications with a master degree in physics, material science, or a related field and enjoy practical work. Knowledge of magnetism, X-Ray scattering, or nanofabrication methods is beneficial. As an enthusiastic researcher you like team work and have a flexible approach to working between different laboratories.
