This is TOPOCOM

TOPOCOM (Topological Solitons in Ferroics for Unconventional Computing) is a European MSCA Doctoral Network, for which we are recruiting 11 doctoral candidates. TOPOCOM will provide comprehensive training on the integrative concepts underlying the science of topological solitons in ferroic materials and their application in unconventional computing. The doctoral candidates will be located at the following institutions: Norwegian University of Science and Technology (2 positions), Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (2 positions), Luxembourg Institute for Science and Technology (1 position), University of Groningen (1 position), University of Messina (1 position), University of Crete (1 position), Infineon Technologies (1 position), Singulus Technologies (1 position), IBM Research GmbH (1 position).

Offer Description

Are you passionate about research? Do you want to get a PhD in an emerging field that will impact the future? Would you like to work in an international multidisciplinary team of 11 PhD students? Join us at TOPOCOM!

TOPOCOM is a network of leading European groups from different disciplines and sectors selected to provide comprehensive training on the integrative concepts underlying the science of topological solitons in ferroic materials and their application in unconventional computing. To realize their potential, the consortium comprises some of the best groups in materials synthesis, device development, characterization and modelling. We will explore soliton properties, model and study their dynamical responses to external stimuli, and design and fabricate devices, where solitons carry out ultralow-power computing and sensing functions.

The individual project descriptions and details of how to apply can be found on the TOPOCOM website: topocom.eu . Generally, candidates can apply for up to three positions, indicating this in the cover letter.

What TOPOCOM will offer

  • A thorough scientific education in the frame of a doctoral training program.
  • The possibility to participate in specific international courses, workshops and conferences.
  • A strong involvement in a European research project with high international visibility.
  • The possibility to perform research visits to internationally renowned research labs in Europe.
  • A prestigious three-year MSCA Fellowship.
  • A competitive salary including mobility and family allowances.
