Applications are invited for a post to develop magnetic thin films for experiments in cold atom trapping experiments and nanoscale magnetic resonators. The successful candidate will carry out the growth of magnetic thin films by sputter deposition and will characterise the layers by magnetometry, magneto-transport and ferromagnetic resonance techniques. This post may require extended visits to work in the laboratories of external academic collaborators.
Candidates should have a PhD, or working towards, in physics or a related discipline and preferably have experience of the growth and characterisation of magnetic thin films, including magnetostrictive materials. They should be well-organised, have good written and oral communication skills, be able to work independently and as part of a team, and be willing to assist in the day-to-day supervision of postgraduate students.
This position is based on a full time, fiexed-term contract for a period of three months.
