Workplace : GRENOBLE
Date of publication : Thursday, September 05, 2019
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 12 months
Expected date of employment : 1 December 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : starting from 2617.05 € gross depending on experience
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : 1 to 4 years
The project objectives are: to engineer materials hosting magnetic chiral domain walls and skyrmions; to optimize their mobility under the application of spin polarized current; to tune and control skyrmion and chiral domain walls properties with an electric field;
The candidate will carry out an essentially experimental work. He/she will grow thin magnetic layers and characterize the magnetic textures with magnetic microscopy techniques (MOKE, AFM-MFM). He/she will elaborate nanostructures using the most promising materials. He/she will measure the magnetization dynamics of domain walls and skyrmions driven by electrical current, in the presence of electric fields.
- PhD degree in physics with previous experience in one of the following subjects; magnetism, micro/nanomagnetism, material science.
- 1 to 3 years experience in a laboratory of applied physics
- A taste for experimental work, also in cleanroom environment.
- Experience in AFM/MFM characterization and cleanroom work is an advantage
- English speaking, reading and writing is mandatory
- Good communication skills and ability to work in a team
This project will take place at the Institut Néel, one of the largest French laboratories dedicated to applied physics. The candidate will be hosted by the Micro and Nanomagnetism team. This international team (25 people) studies and develops thin films of magnetic materials and their applications to spintronics, biology and energy.
The research position is funded by the Agence Nationale pour la Recherche (ANR), project TOPSKY, dedicated to the study and optimization of magnetic skyrmions.
Constraints and risks
Experiments in synchrotron radiation centers outside France may be envisaged.
