PhD Studentships and Postdoctoral Researcher Positions in Two-Dimensional Spintronics

Several PhD Studentships and Postdoctoral Researcher Positions in the group of Dr. Ahmet Avsar at NUS-MSE are available to experimentally study spin-dependent transport phenomena in novel quantum materials. Applicants should send a cover letter, CV and degree transcripts to “”.

The available PhD projects focus on the preparation and characterization of next-generation spintronics devices built by stacking promising two-dimensional quantum materials for applications in energy-efficient information technologies. The research involves advanced nanofabrication in state-of-the-art research facilities, and magneto-transport measurements utilizing low-temperature cryostats. The award includes a full tuition fee, monthly stipend, conference allowance, IT allowance and one-time airfare and settling-in allowances. The applicant must have or expect a First Class or high 2:1 Honours degree or international equivalent (e.g. > 3.3 out of 4) in materials science, physics, engineering, or closely related disciplines. Enthusiasm for research, ability to think and work independently, excellent analytical skills and strong verbal and written communication skills are essential requirements. Previous experience in cleanroom processing, fabrication of 2D heterostructures, programming or low-temperature physics is desirable.

Postdoc positions are also available in our laboratory, focused on all-electronic spin transport, magnon transport and superconductivity in two-dimensional materials-based heterostructure devices. Our National Research Foundation supported group has a ~ 100 m 2 lab space with a full access to a clean room facility at the Graphene Research Centre (CA2DM) dedicated to 2D device physics and a cryofree low temperature high magnetic field measurement facility (magnetic fields up to 16T and base temperatures down to 20 mK). Interested candidates with a strong background in these fields, device fabrication & low-temperature magnetotransport measurements, should send their CVs and cover letters to Dr Avsar.

At NUS-MSE, we are committed to promoting diversity, and we encourage applications from under-represented groups to apply. The Materials Science Research at National University of Singapore is consistently ranked as one of the Top 10 in the world according to University Rankings.
