Jobbeschreibung

The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people.

The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems, based at the PSI, is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the PSI. One scientific focus of the group is to study artificial spin systems consisting of arrays of magnetically-coupled nanomagnets. To expand our current research on artificial spin systems we are looking for a
