Duration:Fixed Term Contract for 48 months

Description:You will carry out research as part of the EPSRC-funded project “Half-metallic ferromagnets: materials fundamentals for next-generation spintronics”, with particular responsibility for growth and characterisation of ferromagnet / semiconductor thin-films. Experience with ultra-high vacuum science is esse ntial.

Eligibility:You should be proficient in a number of laboratory techniques, such as molecular beam epitaxy, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, X-ray photoemission spectroscopy, electron diffraction and magnetometry.You will use synchrotron radiation facilities to measure structure (e.g. X-ray diffraction) and electronic properties (e.g. angle- and spin-resolved photoemission) of the films. You will also work with theoretical physicists and device physicists to link the measured thin film properties to ab initio modelling and device functional properties, and so experience of working in a large interdisciplinary team is an advantage. You will need to present results at regular project meetings and write reports as part of the project deliverables. Familiarity with density functional theory and spin transport would be advantageous.

Please note that you will conduct some of the work at The University of York and in partner laboratories.
