Employer: ETH Zurich

Vacancy type: PostDoc vacancy;


The Laboratory for Mesocopic Systems based at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) is a joint laboratory between the ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute, which is the largest research centre for the natural and engineering sciences in Switzerland. The current research focus is the investigation of novel magnetic and complex oxide thin film systems and nanostructures, making use of the clean rooms and large scale facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute, and fostering the synergies with the Department of Materials (ETH Zurich).
The group is searching for a

Postdoctoral Fellow

We are looking for a candidate who will conduct outstanding research in the field of ultrafast processes in magnetic thin films and nanostructures, participating in the current projects of the laboratory including areas such as artificial spin ice, complex oxide composites, hybrid systems and magnetization dynamics. She/he will develop her/his own research projects, in particular to study ultrafast processes with a lab-based setup and x-ray free electron lasers.

The successful candidate has excellent qualifications with a PhD in physics, materials science or a related subject. Knowledge of magnetism, ultrafast laser setups and large scale facility measurements, particularly at free electron lasers, would be of benefit. The candidate should enjoy practical work and have a flexible approach working between different groups at the Paul Scherrer Institute

We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas and contact details of 2 referees. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
