The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systemsbased at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute, which is the largest research centre for the natural and engineering sciences in Switzerland. The current research focus is the investigation of novel magnetic systems at the mesoscopic scale making use of the clean rooms and large-scale facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute, and fostering the synergies with the Department of Materials (ETH Zurich). We now wish to strengthen our research in spintronics. The group is searching for a
Postdoctoral Researcher in Mesoscopic Systems
The successful candidatehas a background in magnetic thin films, nanostructures and devices. He/she will be responsible for performing transport measurements in novel mesoscopic magnetic systems such as nanomagnet logic devices, artificial spin ice, hybrid systems and three-dimensional structures, and will develop his/her own ideas using experimental measurements in the laboratory in combination with large-scale facility measurements, such as synchrotron x-ray microscopy at the Swiss Light Source.
The successful candidatehas outstanding qualifications with a PhD in physics, electrical engineering, materials science or a related subject, and already has experience with spintronics. He/she should be highly motivated, proactive and creative in order to be successful, and should have excellent team and communication skills.
