Job Title: Young doctor (Postdoc)
Conducting research of topological matter in one of MagTop’s theoretical teams, see: http://www.magtop.ifpan.edu.pl/; in particular, the postdoc will perform relativistic first-principle calculations of topological materials or twisted 2D materials, including description of surface states, calculation of topological invariants and transport properties such as Anomalous Hall effect and Spin-Hall effect.
EURAXESS: Recognized Researcher – R2.
Place of work will be Warszawa.
The International Centre for Interfacing Magnetism and
Superconductivity with Topological Matter – MagTop is the Division (ON-6) of the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (http://www.ifpan.edu.pl/index_en.php) and is funded by a grant awarded to Professors Tomasz Dietl and Tomasz Wojtowicz within the International Research Agendas programme of the Foundation for Polish Science, carried out from the funds of the European Regional Development Fund under the Smart Growth Operational Programme (SG OP), Priority Axis 4: Increasing the research potential, Measure 4.3: International Research Agendas (http://www.fnp.org.pl/en/oferta/international- research-agendas-ira/). MagTop activities involve strong local and international collaborations, the strategic partner unit being Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, Germany, particularly the Institute EP3 headed by Professor Laurens W. Molenkamp.
The postdoc could work among different topics of the Magtop agenda including k-space topology, 2D materials, Anomalous Hall Effect and Spin-Hall effect in thin films or 3D materials. Furthermore, there will be a strong connection with experimental teams and other theory groups.
Place of work will be Warszawa.
