Are you an ambitious researcher in nanomagnetism looking for your next challenge? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading spintronics research groups?

You will join an experimental research project on synthetic antiferromagnetic skyrmions, funded by EPSRC. You will work in a team at the University of Leeds that is led by Prof. Christopher Marrows that will collaborate with the University of Glasgow, the National Physical Laboratory, and the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. 

You will have an experimental PhD degree, or equivalent, and research experience in Physics and/or Engineering along with significant experience in the physics of nanomagnetism and spintronics, ideally in the field of magnetic skyrmions or related areas.

You will focus on magnetic thin film growth and the design and fabrication of nanostructures patterned from them to provide samples for study at Leeds as well by our collaborative partners. In addition to carrying out a series of research projects, you will be an excellent communicator, responsible for day-to-day interactions with our collaborative partners, writing papers, and making presentations. You will travel regularly to the collaborative partner’s institutes for project meetings and joint experiments, as well as to conferences to present your results.
