Post-doctoral position in "Spin physics in graphene-based nanostructures"

Research Field: Physics 
Sub Research Field:  

Job Summary

Graphene and related materials have emerged as an ideal solution to combine spin localization and diffusion. These atomically thin materials can be fabricated with atomic precision, opening the door to fabrication of designer structures with precise shape, composition, spin arrangement, and interconnected by graphene electrodes for electrostatic or quantum gates.

Job Description

In the framework of the EU-funded research project “SPin Research IN Graphene” (SPRING) under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme FET Open (grant agreement No 863098), we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to develop a theoretical framework to propose ways for electrical detection and manipulation of localised spins in open-shell graphene nanostructures. The analysis could initially focus on a measurement protocol for a single electron spin and subsequently be extended to systems with spin-spin interactions (electron spin chains) and/or nuclear spins.

The work will be carried out at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) in collaboration with the experimental partners of the SPRING consortium from CIC nanoGUNE, Technical University of Delft, University of Santiago de Compostela, IBM Research, and University of Oxford.

Candidates should be highly motivated researchers with a PhD degree and a strong background in theoretical solid-state physics, excellent communication skills and English knowledge. Previous experience with spin systems, electronic structure theory, quantum transport, quantum information theory, and MPS/DMRG/tensor network methods would be an advantage.
