PhD student in physics


Sort by publication: 2018-01-19

 

Uppsala University is a broad research university with a strong international position. The task is to conduct research and education of the highest quality and to cooperate in different ways with society. Our most important asset is all the individuals who, with their curiosity and commitment, make Uppsala University one of the country's most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of 6.5 billion.

 

At the Department of Physics and Astronomy, with access April 1, 2018 or by agreement.

 

At the Department of Materials Physics, the Department of Physics and Astronomy, research in magnetic materials, soft materials and hydrogen in metals. This doctoral service is in the field of magnetic materials, where we investigate, inter alia, fundamental magnetic coupling phenomena, dimensional aspects of magnetic materials, adaptation of magnetic properties, and some classes of functional magnetic materials. More information is available on the department's website http://www.physics.uu.se/research/materials-physics+/ . By studying model systems we can understand the basic mechanisms of how composition and local atomic structure affect the overall magnetic properties, which can later be used to design materials. The doctoral student service is also a joint research project with the department of Nanoscale Engineering Division at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM), Linköping University; see http://www.ifm.liu.se/materialphysics/nanoeng/ for more information. The doctoral student is admitted to Uppsala University, where the main work is performed, and has a deputy supervisor in Linköping.

 

project Description


The overall objectives of the project are to explore the physical causes of enrolled magnetic anisotropy in amorphous metal alloy thin films, and to investigate how combinations of amorphous hard and soft magnetic phases can be used to create strong composite magnets with tailor-made performance for potential future applications. The enrolled anisotropy is likely to be linked to nuclear order on short and medium scale, but the mechanisms are far from being investigated. Thin films will be manufactured under strictly controlled conditions. We will both conduct screening of alloy compounds, using combinatorial sputtering at Uppsala University, and focused studies on selected compounds with the newly developed technology Modulated Impulse Magnetron Sputtering Interplay (MIMSI) at Linköping University. MIMSI enables the production of self-organized nanostructures with resolution of less than one atomic layer, ie we can vary the location of atoms with better precision than ever before. Structural characterization methods that will be used include X-ray scattering, EXAFS and atomic tomography, while magnetic characterization is done with various magnetometries. Theoretical calculations performed by other researchers within the project will assist in the interpretation of data from the structural and magnetization measurements.

The PhD student's work, which will primarily involve thin film production with subsequent characterization measurements and data analysis, will be conducted at Uppsala University and Linköping University for 4 years, together with other PhD students and research staff at both institutions. Experiments at other facilities in Sweden and abroad will be necessary.

 

Information 


service requires a university degree (basic competence according to the Higher Education Ordinance) in physics, materials physics, materials science or equivalent. The application must contain a letter in which the applicant describes himself, his qualifications and research interests, as well as CV, copies of academic grades, final degree or draft, and other relevant publications and references. Include recommendation letters and / or contact information to persons who can provide relevant information about the applicant's qualifications.

 

Applicants with strong background in physics, materials physics or materials science will be given priority. Very good skills in communicating in writing and verbally in English is a requirement. A clearly demonstrated ability to communicate in Swedish is a merit.

 

The PhD student's appointment is limited to 4 years full-time studies. Holders of doctoral posts must mainly engage in their own postgraduate studies, ie courses and research. Other duties at the department regarding teaching and administrative work may be included within the scope of the employment (max 20%). Graduate education comprises four years.

 

More information about postgraduate studies can be found on the institution's website, www.physics.uu.se , and at the Faculty of Science and Technology, www.teknat.uu.se . Provisions for doctoral students are found in the Higher Education Ordinance 5 ch §§1-7 and in the university's rules and guidelines on the rules.uu.se page .

 

Uppsala University values the qualities that even gender distribution and diversity add to the business. We therefore look forward to searching for all sexes and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.

 

Salary: according to local agreement (local collective agreement for doctoral students and students).

 

Access: 2018-04-01 or by appointment.
