PhD position in Optical Physics and nanomanufacturing

A PhD position in Optical Physics and nanomanufacturing: Magnon Polaritons, metamaterials and the control of spins is available at the Department of Physics.

We are seeking a PhD student interested in taking the challenge of designing and exploring experimental magnon polariton systems and their coupling mechanisms, firmly based on our current theoretical and numerical understanding.

Required selection criteria

The PhD-position's main objective is to qualify for work in research positions. The qualification requirement is that you have completed a master’s degree or second degree (equivalent to 120 credits) with a strong academic background in physics or equivalent education with a grade of B or better in terms of NTNU’s grading scale.

  • We seek highly motivated candidates with a completed M.Sc. degree in Physics, Optical physics/nano photonics, Nanotechnology, Materials Science or related areas.

  • The position requires a documented background in solid state physics, classical electromagnetism, optics and scientific programming. It is preferable with competence (and strong interest) in experimental research and data analysis. Candidates with experience in optics (plasmonics, metamaterials, Computational Electromagnetics), magnetic materials and clean room device fabrication are encouraged to apply.

  • Additionally, the project will be driven by a collaborative approach and international experience or experience in collaborative projects will be beneficial. The successful applicant should be highly competent, motivated, ambitious and with excellent English qualifications. The candidate must be willing to perform some travelling for accessing characterization techniques only available at external institutes.

Personal characteristics

  • The successful candidate should be creative, ambitious and enthusiastic, with a strong ability to work independently and goal-oriented.

  • The position requires spoken and written fluency in English.

  • Working knowledge of Norwegian or another Scandinavian language would be evaluated positively.

In the evaluation of which candidate is best qualified, emphasis will be placed on education, experience and personal suitability.

We offer

  • exciting and stimulating tasks in a strong international academic environment

  • an open and inclusive work environment with dedicated colleagues

  • favourable terms in the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund

  • employee benefits
