PhD on skyrmions and particle-like topological states in frustrated magnets

This PhD work focusses on experimental studies of skyrmions and particle-like topological magnetic states in a new class of skyrmion hosting materials, frustrated magnets, where a great variety of novel magnetic phases with non-trivial topology is expected. The aim is to understand the microscopic behaviour in the bulk by combining magnetization and susceptibility with elastic and inelastic neutron scattering experiments. The samples will be made available through collaborations.

We are seeking an outstanding and enthusiastic researcher with a MSc in Physics. The successful candidate combines creativity, flexibility, hands-on attitude for experimental work and has the ability to co-operate within an interdisciplinary and international research group. He/She will perform magnetic properties characterization experiments (in-house) as well as state-of-the-art scattering experiments at national and international large-scale facilities. He/She will perform the data analysis, interpret the results, publish them in high profile journals and present them at national and international conferences. A strong background in Condensed Matter Physics is required. Good knowledge of English, both written and oral, is compulsory.

The PhD position is offered for four years and will be based at Delft University of Technology. The salary will be up to a maximum of 2,834 euro gross per month, supplemented with a holiday allowance of 8 percent and an end-of-year bonus of 8.33 percent.

To apply, please send an application letter, a grade list and a full resume to c.pappas at tudelft.nl<mailto:c.pappas at tudelft.nl> before December 1, 2017.
