Recent scientific studies, in particular recent theoretical predictions show that magnetic properties of materials that are non-planar or curved on the nanoscale lead to most significantly altered behavior due to the suppression or loss of symmetry. This can generate or enhance quantum mechanical interactions that are otherwise prohibited in symmetric crystal lattices, so that fundamentally changed magnetic states or properties can occur. This project aims at experimentally exploring and quantifying such effects, as well as utilizing it toward the design of novel magnetic materials and devices. The research will be supervised by Dr. Andreas Berger of the Nanomagnetism groups in collaboration with other research groups at nanoGUNE, in particular the Nanodevices group.

The selected candidate should have a Master (or equivalent) degree in Physics, Materials Science or Engineering, and will be responsible for the design and fabrication of non-planar substrates / templates together with magnetic materials deposition, as well as structural, microscopic and magnetic sample characterization.

We offer an international and competitive environment, state-of-the-art equipment, and the possibility of performing research at the highest level. The PhD students will be enrolled at the University of the Basque Country Doctorate Program.

The candidates should apply by completing the form below, attaching:

  1. A complete CV
  2. A cover letter indicating clearly which position they are interested in
  3. Academic qualifications
  4. At least one reference letter grouped in a single PDF file.


  • Applications that do not follow the instructions indicated above will not be considered further.
  • The deadline for applications is 6th September 2019
  • Please note that due to the large number of submissions expected, we cannot provide individual feedback.
