We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people. The Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems, based at the PSI, is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the PSI. One scientific focus of the group is to study artificial spin systems consisting of arrays of magnetically coupled nanomagnets. The nanomagnets are arranged on periodic and aperiodic lattices, and display several fascinating phenomena including emergent magnetic monopoles, phase transitions, chirality and frustration. To expand our current research on artificial spin systems we are looking for a PhD Student Magnetic Correlations in Artificial Spin Systems Your tasks Conduct outstanding research in the field of artificial spin systems Fabricate magnetic nanostructures with electron beam lithography Study magnetic correlations in artificial spin systems with synchrotron based imaging and scattering techniques Perform micromagnetic and Monte Carlo simulations to support the experimental results Your profile Excellent qualifications with a master degree in physics, material science or related topic, and enjoy practical work.
