Are you a researcher in computational magnetism looking for your next challenge?

Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading spintronics research groups?

You will join a theory and computational project on developing a new atomic scale quantum model of magnetic materials funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. You will work in a team at the University of Leeds led by Dr Joseph Barker, including PhD students and a Research Software Engineer.

You will have a PhD degree in an area related to theoretical or computational physics, and research experience in Physics along with significant experience in the physics of nanomagnetism, magnetic materials, and/or spintronics, ideally in the field of atomic scale modelling or related areas.

You will develop a path integral formalism for spin dynamics and write an open-source software implementation. You will use this software to study quantum effects in antiferromagnetic materials. You will be an excellent communicator and will be involved in physics outreach, travel to scientific conferences and visit collaborators.

Please note: If you are not a British or Irish citizen, from 1 January 2021 you will require permission to work in the UK. This will normally be in the form of a visa but, if you are an EEA/Swiss citizen and resident in the UK before 31 December 2020, this may be your passport or status under the EU Settlement Scheme.
