Chiral magnetic texture mapping with SEMPA for photonic integration
Applications are invited for Fully funded PhD scholarship position in Applied Physics at the Department of Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands.
The Department of Applied Physics, Eindhoven University of Technology is looking for a talented and highly motivated experimental physics PhD applicant with extensive experimental expertise and creativity to mould nanoscale magnetic interactions into chiral magnetic textures.
The main subject of research is to experimentally explore the manipulation of chiral magnetic textures for use in photonic integration, as probed by using in-situ scanning electron microscopy with polarization analysis (SEMPA) in a state-of-the-art fabrication and characterisation system. The aim is to integrate optically tuneable chiral magnetic textures on photonic waveguides within the larger NOW Gravitation research project on Integrated NanoPhotonics of the Applied Physics and Electronic Engineering departments at the Eindhoven University of Technology.
The successful PhD applicant will receive the following benefits:
- gross monthly salary between € 2.222,00 – € 2.801,00
- a challenging job in a dynamic and ambitious university and a stimulating internationally renowned research environment
- full-time temporary appointment for 4 years
- 8% holiday and 8.3% end-of-year annual supplements
- an extensive package of fringe benefits (e.g. excellent technical infrastructure, the possibility of child care and excellent sports facilities)
To be eligible for PhD scholarship position in Applied Physics, an applicant must:
- have a recently (<1 year) obtained Master of Science or equivalent degree in experimental physics
- be a talented and highly motivated experimental physics applicant with extensive experimental expertise to understand and tune magnetic interactions for efficient chiral domain wall motion and creativity to explore the integration of these structures into photonic integrated circuits
- have experience in the field of nanomagnetism/spintronics and/or device-oriented condensed matter physics is mandatory, experience in photonics is secondary
- prove a strong attitude towards experimental physics and the drive and capacity to tackle different aspects of a complex problem with large independence
Applicants are required to submit the following documents with application:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Motivation letter
- Names and contact details of two references
- Proof of MSc or equivalent (diploma), if not yet available a proof of enrolment
- Excerpt of recent academic writing (e.g. part of thesis / article)
