General information

Reference : UMR5221-ISAPHI-008
Date of publication : Thursday, July 30, 2020
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 24 months
Expected date of employment : 1 November 2020
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : about 2100 euros net salary
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


The objectives of the project is the investigation, by scanning NV center magnetometry, chiral magnetic structures (domain walls, skyrmions) in antiferromagnetic materials, in view of unraveling the physics that governs their stabilization and identifying the optimal strategy for their manipulation. The work will include an experimental component related to the imaging and a modelling component for data analysis.


The candidate will carry out an essentially experimental work. He/she will carry the imaging measurements in an AFM microscope. He/she will map the magnetic field distributions produced by the magnetic structures and will develop models for data analysis.


- PhD degree in physics with previous experience in magnetism and AFM techniques
- Experimental physics and optics
- English speaking, reading and writing is mandatory
- Good communication skills and ability to work in a team

Work Context

This project will take place at the Laboratoire Charles Coulomb. The candidate will be hosted by the Solid-State Quantum Technologies team. This team (15 people) studies the physics of point defects in solids for applications in quantum communications and sensing. The candidate will participate to the activity on magnetic field quantum sensors applied to the investigation of the physics in antiferromagnets, in the framework of the ASTERIQS and EXAFONIS European projects.
