Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Pulsed Laser Deposition of Magnetic Systems in Zürich

Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.

Jobbeschreibung

100%, Zurich, fixed-term

The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute, which is the largest research centre for natural and engineering sciences in Switzerland. The current research focus is the investigation of novel magnetic systems at the mesoscopic scale making use of the cleanrooms and large-scale facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute, and fostering the synergies with the Department of Materials, ETH Zurich.
We would like to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Pulsed Laser Deposition of Magnetic Systems.

Project background

Magnetic materials are important for the storage and transfer of digital information, and the substantial increase in the mass of data to be handled and safeguarded requires the development of new, better-performing materials. We are interested in the development and characterization of novel magnetic systems comprising multilayers and nanostructures. 

Job description

You will be responsible for running a basic pulsed laser deposition system and fabricating high-quality thin films, nanocomposites and multilayers. Furthermore, you will carry out research that fits with one or more of the research fields of the Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems including frustrated spin systems, ultrafast processes, hybrid systems and spintronics. In addition, you will be part of a team ascertaining the properties of the systems with large-scale facilities (synchrotron x-rays and neutrons).  In this postion, you will have the opportunity to create nanostructures with state-of-the-art nanofabrication methods, and study ultrafast processes with lab-based equipment and x-ray-free electron lasers. Finally, you are expected to make measurements and take responsibility for the group instruments such as the x-ray diffractometer, and SQUID-VSM and PPMS measurement systems.

Your profile
  • Excellent qualifications with a PhD in materials science, physics or a related subject, with a high-quality track record in research.
  • Extensive experience with magnetic thin films created with pulsed laser deposition and related characterization tools is required.
  • Knowledge of lithography and large-scale facility measurements would also be helpful.
  • Motivated, proactive and creative in order to be successful, and you should have good team and communication skills.
