Veröffentlicht am(vor 32 Tagen)
The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.10.2019 of a
University Assistant (prae doc)
at the Nanomagnetism and Magnonics
Reference number: 9858
The “Nanomagnetism and Magnonics” Research Group under the direction of Prof. Dr. Andrii Chumak at the Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna, is a young and ambitious team that conducts internationally leading research in the fields of spintronics and magnonics. The research scope of the group encompasses magnonics, magnon spintronics, quantum magnonics at low temperatures, magnon-based data processing, and nonlinear spin-wave phenomena in nanoscale hybrid systems. We are looking for a motivated prae-doc assistant (PhD student) to extend our team. The overall aim of the position is to perform cut-edge studies of spin-wave based data processing at the nano-scale by means of numerical simulations. A typical example of such investigations is a recently presented magnonic half-adder [https://arxiv.org/abs/1902.02855]. The investigations of nonlinear spin-wave interactions on the nanoscale is of primarily importance in this context. The aim of the position assumes the prolongation of the research direction of a magnon beyond-CMOS operations with binary data [Nature Physics 11, 453 (2015)] as well as exploring of new approaches of unconventional computing including magnonic neuromorphic networks.
For further information please contact Andrii Chumak firstname.lastname@example.org
