PhD Research Fellowships in Theoretical Physics – Antiferromagnetic Spintronics

Updated: about 2 months ago

Description of the offer :

Two 100% PhD research positions in theoretical spintronics are available at the Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Agder (UiA) in Norway. The positions are affiliated with the Department of Engineering Sciences at Campus Grimstad. The successful candidates will pursue their PhD studies for a period of three years. They will be connected to the PhD programme in Engineering and Science at the Department of Engineering Sciences, UiA. The expected starting date is in August 2023. Spintronics is a cutting-edge technology that leverages the spin property of electrons in electronic applications. In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in implementing antiferromagnetic materials in spin-based electronics, leading to the emergence of a new research direction known as antiferromagnetic spintronics. The objective of this project is to explore the intricate interplay between heat and spin currents in antiferromagnets. In particular, we aim to investigate the potential of antiferromagnetic materials in developing innovative energy-harvesting technologies. Prof. Kjetil M. D. Hals heads the project at UiA. Additionally, the research will be conducted in close collaboration with the Kläui-Lab at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the TWIST group at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany.
