Are you a researcher in condensed matter physics looking for your next challenge?

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

You will be working on an innovative project which is an essential part of a 5 year £7.8M EPSRC Programme, Grant Nanoscale Advanced Materials Engineering (NAME) which is a collaboration between the University of Manchester, Imperial College London and the University of Leeds. NAME aims to revolutionise the design and delivery of functionality on demand at the nanoscale within advanced materials and, through the development of new world-leading capabilities. We aim to transform the ability to exploit spin and photonics; address and harness thermal interactions; realise designer materials for quantum technologies; and in so doing, shape the UK and international advanced functional materials landscape. Details of the NAME project can be found on our dedicated website .

Your role will be to develop lateral spin valves for spin current transport. The objective is to enhance the spin signal utilising the P-NAME ion implantation tool based in Manchester. P-NAME has sub-5nm resolution e-beam imaging enabling the target for doping to be identified without ion contamination and can then deposit isotopically-selected ions with sub-20nm resolution. The doping concentration can be controlled from single ion to high dose (e.g. 1018 ions/cm2) doping at energies from ~5 to 50 keV and includes direct-write ion beam lithography capability.

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.
