3D Magneto-mechanical Artificial Spin Systems

项目介绍

The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people.

The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems, based at the PSI, is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the PSI. One scientific focus of the group is to study artificial spin systems consisting of arrays of magnetically-coupled nanomagnets. To expand our current research on artificial spin systems we are looking for a PhD Student.

Job description

  • Manufacture 3D artificial spin systems using nanofabrication methods, including two photon laser lithography to create scaffolds and electron beam lithography to create origami structures
  • Characterise the magnetic properties with lab-based methods
  • Measure mechanical properties with lab-based methods
  • Measure the magnetic configurations with X-ray tomography at the Swiss Light Source at PSI
  • Develop models for the behaviour of the magneto-mechanical structures

Your profile

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

We offer

Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture. If you wish to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.

Interested?
