We offer a 2 year Postdoc position, embedded in the Research Group Physics of nanostructures at the Department of Applied Physics. The experimental research involves fabrication of relevant devices structures, magnetic and structural characterization, and in particular spin transport studies.

In the field of antiferromagnetic Spintronics, there is a job opening for a fulltime postdoctoral (PD) researcher for a period of two years. Antiferromagnets are characterized by the absence of macroscopic magnetism due to an internal spin texture of antiparallel moments, which is an extremely favourable feature for robust data storage. The proposed experiments are concentrating on the active use of ultrathin antiferromagnets for reading and writing information, and will give new fundamental insights regarding the complex interaction between spin currents and nanomagnetic textures. The PD will work closely together with a PhD-student already working in this field, currently exploring several materials and structures for the realization of these novel data storage possibilities.


We seek excellent candidates who completed their PhD in physics recently, are about to finish soon, or have a few years of postdoctoral experience. We expect the PD to have extended experience in the field of spintronics, with an emphasis on the technology and physics of spin structures and thin-film devices. A curiosity driven and creative research attitude, a drive to shape your own project and good collaborative skills will be expected. Full professional fluency in English is required.


The PD will be employed by TU/e on a project that receives funding from NWO by a NWO Natuurkunde 'projectruimte' grant.

We offer a challenging job in a dynamic and ambitious university through a fixed-term appointment for a period of 2 years. As an employee of the university you will receive a competitive salary as well as excellent employment conditions. The salary may vary between € 3.255,-- and € 4.274,-- per month (gross), depending on your experience. Moreover, an 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of-year allowance is provided annually. Assistance for finding accommodation can be given. The university offers an attractive package of fringe benefits such as excellent technical infrastructure, child care, savings schemes, and excellent sports facilities.
