PhD Position in Spintronics

Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Germany

We are pleased to announce the opening of two PhD positions 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 EverschorSitte) 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.
