A postdoctoral position is available at the Group of Smart Nanoengineered Materials, Nanomechanics and Nanomagnetism (Gnm3) of the Physics Department at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate magneto-ionic effects in advanced materials, with the potential to bring this interesting research field to the areas of neuromorphic computing and cryptography. Magneto-ionics refers to the use of voltage to induce ion migration in magnetic materials with the aim of modifying their properties in a non-volatile manner. The duration of the appointment is 1 year (with the possibility of extending it to 2 years) and the gross salary is 32.000 euros per year.

Position requirements:

– Previous expertise in sputtering and other thin-film deposition techniques

– Previous knowledge in electrolyte-gating of magnetic materials

– Previous knowledge in magneto-ionics or magnetoelectric actuation in general

– Outstanding level in English, in particular for scientific writing (publications and projects).

Interested applicants should send a full CV, a Letter of Interest and the contact details of two possible senior researchers which could support your application before the 30th of September 2021 to Prof. Jordi Sort:
