The PhD project will focus on the study of generation and detection of spins and magnetisation in devices based on two-dimensional materials and heterostructures. You will exploit, engineer and manipulate the symmetries of two-dimensional materials to control their magnetic and spintronic properties and quantify them using optical and electrical characterisation techniques.
- a master’s degree in physics, electrical engineering, material science, or another related field
- previous experience in optics, electronic transport, nanofabrication, or two-dimensional materials and heterostructures is a plus
- some computer programming knowledge is appreciated
- good spoken and written English proficiency is required.
ConditionsWe offer you in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities:
- a salary of € 2,325 gross per month in the first year to a maximum of € 2,972 gross per month in the final year (salary scale PhD students), based on a full-time position (1.0 FTE)
