Postdoctoral Fellow in Superconducting Nanoelectronics
Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics HSE University Moscow, Russia
Ferromagnetic superconductors for memory and logic applications
Ferromagnetic superconductors are novel materials that display intrinsic coexistence of ferromagnetism and superconductivity. They attract significant interest due to possible memory and logic applications in superconducting nanoelectronics. The research project aims to study theoretically the vortex dynamics in multiband ferromagnetic superconductors and the magnetic response that is the cornerstone characteristic of ferromagnetic superconductors for their applications. Although the planned activity is theoretical, close contact with the experimental group of Prof. Konstantin Arutyunov is sought.
About HSE University
The Higher School of Economics (HSE University) is a young, dynamic and fast-growing Russian research university. Over the past 25 years, HSE University has become a leader in Russian education, while also being recognized globally.
For instance, we were the first state-run university in Russia to begin recruiting on the international academic market. We aim at being a university with a highly attuned approach to training new professionals. Therefore, we are eager to hire people with real experience, as well as basic and applied knowledge. Committed to high-quality research, HSE University now has more than 100 research institutes and centres and over 30 international research laboratories collaborating with international specialists from all over the world.
The general requirements for the postdoctoral fellowship positions are the following:
Candidates must hold a recent PhD in the field of Quantum physics, Condensed matter physics, Theoretical physics or related areas which was awarded over the last 5 years or received before starting work at HSE in a relevant field by an internationally recognized university and has been assessed by external reviewers as having the potential to pursue research that is publishable in leading peer-reviewed journals;Candidates should have a strong background in numerical simulations, theoretical condensed matter physics and the ability to work in a team;Fluent English is an obligatory condition as research and other activities are conducted in English. Knowledge of Russian is not required;Relevant experience will be an asset although not required.
The position involves:
working under the direct supervision of Prof. Andrey Vasenko [firstname.lastname@example.org]participants are encouraged to pursue their own research along with working on Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory research projects such as:Studies of the intertype superconductivity in arrays of superconducting nano-wires and nano-films for possible qubit applicationsSuperconducting proximity effect in various S/F hybrid devices for the novel types of magnetoresistive memory elementswriting research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of the Quantum Nanoelectronics Laboratory;participation in the events of the Laboratory and other contribution to the Lab’s development;public presentations of candidate’s own research to the academic community;some teaching is encouraged, though not required.
Appointments are normally made for one year. Postdoctoral fellows have an opportunity of renewal of the contract (no more than two times).
HSE University offers postdoctoral fellows a competitive salary, the standard medical insurance plan, a working space equipped with a computer and free Internet access at the University.
