Postdoc fellowship in Two-dimensional (2D) spin and orbital electronics

Updated: 2 months ago

Description of the offer :

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Webpage: Research group: The Quantum Material Device group at Uppsala University, is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg (KAW) Foundation to push the boundaries of quantum materials research. The group's overarching research focuses on developing innovative quantum material devices, investigating the charge, spin, and orbital quantum phenomena, and exploring their potential for various applications such as energy-efficient spin memory and logic applications, flexible spintronic devices, exotic quantum sensors, and intelligent spin-integrated and neuromorphic circuits. Project description: Electrons possess a magnetic property called 'spin' that can be Up or Down. Spin-polarized electrons or spins form the basis for spintronics that enabled ultrahigh-density magnetic memory storage and precision sensing, revolutionizing the information technology age. In addition, the orbital angular momentum is also a quantum property that can be harnessed to create novel orbital electronic devices. This project aims to understand, observe and realize novel charge, spin, and orbital phenomena, for example, using the spin of electrons to realize efficient spin devices using 2D materials and advance toward complex spin integrated circuits or to realize new quantum phases for advanced quantum sensors. Responsibilities: The postdoctoral researcher should be committed to conducting frontline competitive research. The postdoc will realize novel devices using state-of-the-art tools in the cleanroom and/or perform characterization using high-precision low-temperature magneto-transport and magneto-optic measurement tools, take responsibility for timely reports, manuscripts, presentations, and notes. Qualifications: Highly motivated candidates with demonstrated experience in cleanroom-based nanofabrication of devices (preferably graphene, 2D materials) and flexible electronic devices. Experimental abilities in performing electrical characterization and low-temperature measurements (experience with dilution refrigerator will be advantageous), instrumentation, learning new techniques, troubleshooting instrumentation, and optimizing and developing newer methods. An excellent command of English is necessary. To qualify for a postdoc position, you must have a doctoral degree in physics, engineering physics, or a relevant field. The scholarship requirement needs that you are not employed on scholarship previously at Uppsala University. The application should be written in English and include the following: 1. A letter of intent with a short description of your research background (max two pages). 2. CV, including a description of relevant skills and experiences and a complete publication list. 3. A copy of your Ph.D. degree or date of thesis submission and details. 4. Contact information to a minimum of two (ideally three) individuals who can provide letters of reference to support your application, briefly mentioning how these individuals are professionally related to you. Please send your application to Type of employment: Temporary position for 12 months, with a possibility for extension for a second year, upon mutual agreement.
