A postdoctoral position is available in Prof. Andy Kent's research group in the Center for Quantum Phenomena of the Department of Physics. The research involves the study of spin-torque oscillators based on quantum materials. The aim is to explore oscillators based on transition metal oxides with competing electronic phases (e.g. metal/insulating, magnetic/non-magnetic, etc.) with applications to neuromorphic computing. The successful candidate will characterize spin oscillators using high-speed/frequency electrical test stands and fabricate appropriate samples using electron beam lithography. Experience with electronic transport, magnetic measurements, magnetic materials, microwave techniques and nanofabrication is desirable. The candidate will work with a multi-university team with expertise in quantum materials and magnetic modeling. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential.
Funding for this position is from a Department of Energy, Energy Frontier Research Center, at the University of California San Diego entitled "Quantum Materials for Energy Efficient Neuromorphic Computing (QMEENC)."
Job Summary: Conduct research and perform experiments; analyze data; prepare and present reports of the results of your research and experiments; assist and supervise the work of other lab members.
Ph.D. in Physics, Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering, within 0-5 years of post-PhD training.
