Postdoctoral Associate on Quantum Materials Spintronics with Professor Kent


A postdoctoral position is available in Prof. Andy Kent’s research group in the Center for Quantum Phenomena of the Department of Physics. The research involves the study of spin-torque oscillators based on quantum materials. The aim is to explore oscillators based on transition metal oxides with competing electronic phases (e.g. metal/insulating, magnetic/non-magnetic, etc.) with applications to neuromorphic computing. The successful candidate will characterize spin oscillators using high-speed/frequency electrical test stands and fabricate appropriate samples using electron beam lithography. Experience with electronic transport, magnetic measurements, magnetic materials, microwave techniques and nanofabrication is desirable. The candidate will work with a multi-university team with expertise in quantum materials and magnetic modeling. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential.


Ph.D. in Physics, Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering, within 0-5 years of post-PhD training.
