Postdoctoral Associate on Magnetic Materials and Devices for Stochastic Computing

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 magnetic materials and devices that can generate truly random stochastic fluctuations for use in large-scale brain-inspired computing architecture. The successful candidate will work with national lab and university teams with expertise in probabilistic computing algorithms and architectures, scanning tunneling microscopy, magnetic materials, nanofabrication and modeling. Experience with electronic transport, magnetic measurements, magnetic imaging (e.g. magnetooptic Kerr and x-ray imaging), thin film deposition, nanofabrication and magnetic characterization methods is desirable. Good communication, writing and interpersonal skills are essential.

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.


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