Post Doctoral Researcher, Magnonics & Spintronics
Job no: 496473
Work type: Staff
Categories: Research & Laboratory, Full Time
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Delaware is soliciting applications for a postdoctoral position within the group led by Prof. Benjamin Jungfleisch to carry out research on magnonics and spintronics. The group is interested in a wide range of magnetism-related topics including ultrafast magnetism, spin-transport in nanostructures, and magnetization dynamics. Further information about the group can be found at https://sites.udel.edu/mbj/. With a state-of-the-art nanofabrication facility and a strong community in spintronics, photonics, quantum materials, and quantum science, the University of Delaware is well equipped for world-class research. Advantageously located in the mid-Atlantic, the University of Delaware has easy access to a number of major cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York City, and Washington, DC.
The research focus will be on experimental studies of hybridized magnonic excitations and strong magnon-photon as well as magnon-magnon coupling using microwave spectroscopy and Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy and modeling of the experimental results. The successful applicant will be encouraged to pursue independent research interests on related research topics. They will have the opportunity to interact closely with collaborators at Argonne National Laboratory and within the NSF MRSEC at the University of Delaware (https://mrsec.udel.edu/). Responsibilities further include training and supervising graduate/undergraduate students and contributing to the operation of the group.
Applicants should have a PhD in physics, materials science, or a discipline relevant to experimental condensed matter physics. Experience in microwave spectroscopy, magnetotransport, cryogenic experiments, thin-film deposition techniques, and sample fabrication using photo- and electron lithography are required. Experience in magneto-optical techniques (magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements or Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy) is advantageous. The successful candidate should be able to independently formulate research direction and methodology and work collaboratively in a team. The appointment is for one-two years; renewal for a third year is subject to performance and availability of funds. The starting date will be on or before August 1, 2021.
