Postdoctoral Associate on Antiferromagnetic Spintronics at New York University


Description: A postdoctoral position is available in Prof. Andrew Kent’s research group in the Center for Quantum Phenomena of the Department of Physics. The research focus is on antiferromagnetic spintronics, specifically spin-transport phenomena in thin films of antiferromagnetic insulators and at their interfaces with heavy metals, ferrimagnets and ferromagnets. The successful candidate will work within a multi-university and national lab team with expertise in thin film materials, magnetic imaging, measurement, nanofabrication and modeling. Experience with electronic transport and magnetic measurements, magnetic imaging (e.g. x-ray), thin film deposition, nanofabrication and magnetic characterization methods is desirable. Good communication, writing and interpersonal skills are essential.

Job Summary: Conduct research and perform experiments; analyze data; prepare and present reports of the results of your research and experiments; assist and supervise the work of other lab members.

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