The Center for Interdisciplinary Nanoscience of Marseille (CINaM) invites applications for a 3-year doctorate position in theoretical condensed matter physics, starting on September 1st, 2020.
The position is under contract with Aix-Marseille Université, through an employment contract, and funded by the Excellence Initiative of Aix-Marseille (A*Midex), and especially a Chair of Excellence project granted to Dr. Aurélien Manchon.
CINaM is located on the Luminy campus in the heart of the Calanques national park, and has a broad scope of interest in nanoscience, covering physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces, molecular engineering and functional materials, as well as novel two-dimensional and magnetic materials using advanced characterization and nanofabrication techniques. The Theory and Numerical Simulation group (TSN) gathers a dozen of lead researchers and faculty addressing various aspects of multiscale modeling, from materials growth to morphology, to quantum transport. Close proximity with experimental groups and with the Center for Theoretical Physics constitutes an exceptional environment for developing disruptive research.
The advertised position aims to develop novel theories on the spin and magnon transport in non-collinear antiferromagnets. Antiferromagnets are currently gaining massive interest due to their potential application in THz technology. The project will consist in modeling the topological transport of magnons in selected materials of highest interest to experiments such as Mn5Si3, Mn3Sn, g-FeMn etc. Strong interactions with the experimental group at CINaM as well as interactions with theorists abroad are expected. Solid academic background is required.
Application: Until 30th June 2020 at the latest. Letter of interest, detailed CV, list of publications, three recommendation letters. PhD candidates must hold an MSc degree in Physics or Materials Science. The applications should be submitted by e-mail to Dr. Aurélien Manchon, email@example.com
