The goal of this project is to create experimental spin model systems to test machine-learning concepts routed in magnetism, such as glassy or multi-well systems, and probe their dynamics.
As a PhD Candidate you will perform experiments utilising ultra-high precision scanning tunnelling microscopy in magnetic fields and at ultra-low temperatures.
You will explore atomic-scale spin systems in order to gain a better understanding of the magnetic properties of complex spin networks, as well as their magnetisation dynamics.
You will get to use one of the world’s most advanced compilations of microscopes in a very collaborative environment.
Intended start date is winter 2020, but start date is negotiable in certain cases.
Are you interested in our excellent employment conditions?
Faculty of Science
The Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) department at Radboud University’s Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) is an interdisciplinary research department currently comprising 15 scientists and students who utilise SPM techniques to study quantum phenomena on the atomic scale in various scientific areas ranging from fundamental physics to chemistry. We approach our scientific goals using and developing cutting-edge SPM instrumentation that operates in ultra-high vacuum, at cryogenic temperatures, with ultra-low mechanical and electronic noise levels, as well as in magnetic fields up to 9T. You will work at the SPM department in close collaboration with the scientific and technical staff members, who will provide you with training on SPM-related knowledge. You will be embedded in our team of scientists and students from around the world in a highly inspiring, innovative and creative work environment.
