Open position for a predoctoral researcher in magnetic oxides chemistry at ICMAB
One PhD fellowship is offered to talented and enthusiastic individuals with a background in chemistry. The selected candidate will work in the context of the 5-year ERC project Ferrites-by-design for Millimetre wave and Terahertz Technologies (FeMiT), supervised by Dr. Martí Gich, within the Nanoparticles & Nanocomposites group at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC). Deadline for applications: 8 June 2019.
FeMiT is devoted to developing a new family of magnetic oxides to provide innovative nonreciprocal devices for the upcoming generations of wireless communications. The PhD project will be focused on the synthesis of materials, exploring the chemical substitutions of Fe3+ in ε-Fe2O3 for controlling magnetic anisotropy and magnetostriction. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team of 5 people in which she/he will contribute to screen the most suitable compositions for developing proof-of-concept devices.
Candidates must hold university degrees granting access to PhD studies obtained not earlier than 2017 or completing their MSc or equivalent degree not later than September 2019.
Start date in 2019; Gross salary € 21,000-25,300 p.a. depending on the candidate’s experience and value; 4 year contract; no teaching duties;
