A postdoc position is open in our department. The work will focus on theoretical study of spintronics phenomena, mainly in antiferromagnetic materials and other materials with complex magnetic structure.
Antiferromagnets have attracted a considerable attention in the spintronics community in the recent years because they are largely unexplored yet have some intriguing and potentially useful properties. Our department has been at the forefront of experimental and theoretical antiferromagnetic spintronics research. In this project, we will mainly focus on exploring different ways of controlling or detecting the magnetic orders by electrical means, since this is the key for possible applications. The work will mainly involve quantum transport calculations and to lesser extent DFT calculations for calculation of ground state properties.
A strong background in theoretical condensed matter physics is necessary. An experience with DFT calculations or transport calculations is advantageous, but not strictly necessary. Good programming skills are also an advantage since we develop several computer codes in our group.
The position is offered for one year initially but can be possibly extended. You can start anytime.
