PhD Position in Spintronics – JGU Mainz, Germany

We are pleased to announce the opening of two PhD positions in theoretical
condensed matter in the Institute of Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz to work with the spintronics theory groups INSPIRE (Jairo Sinova) and TWIST (Karin Everschor-Sitte) on topics such as antiferromagnetic spintronics, skyrmions, and
topological matter.

The physics institute and the Spin Phenomena Interdisciplinary Center (SPICE)
provide a stimulating environment due to an active workshop program and a broad range of research activities.

The prospective group member must hold a MSc or equivalent diploma. A
background in theoretical techniques in condensed matter physics is required. Candidates interested and/or experienced in spintronics, magnetization dynamics, the physics of antiferromagnetics or skyrmions, and micromagnetic modelling are highly suited for this opportunity. Programming experience is desired.

Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz is an equal opportunity, affirmative actions employer in compliance with German disability laws. Women and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position
is filled. Interested applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a list of publications,
and at least two letters of recommendation to When sending applications please use the subject line “Spintronics PhD position application”.
