Postdoctoral Positions in Condensed Matter Physics
Modeling of Spin-Transfer Devices: Micromagnetism and Spin-Transport (posted May 14, 2013)
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the group of Prof. Kent at New York University. The research will focus on the study of magnetization switching by spin-transfer torques in nanometer scale devices. The goal is to understand, model and optimize the switching characteristics of such devices, in the presence of both thermal and electrical noise. The successful candidate will use advanced micromagnetic codes, including algorithms developed at NYU, to model magnetization switching and the thermal stability of magnetic states. Experience with aspects of this research, such a micromagnetic simulations and the physics of spin-transport, is highly desirable. The candidate will work in a team environment and is expected to interact strongly with an experimental group working on STT devices and device testing. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential. The position will be for one year.
Applications, including a curriculum vita with the names of three references, should be sent to Prof. Kent at the address above (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be reviewed as they are received, and considered until the position is filled.
