The PhD student will be a member of the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit within the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication at the University of Luxembourg. He/she will work under the supervision of Andreas Michels and Élio Périgo. The PhD project deals with the investigation of the structural, (static and dynamic) magnetic and thermal properties of nanomagnetic systems (e.g., NdFeB nanocomposites, ferrofluids, nanorods, etc.). Work to be carried out involves the development/improvement of instrumentation for individual particle tracking and for 3D temperature mapping.
-Master degree or diploma in Physics, Materials Science or in a related domain
-Strong experimental skills (instrument control/Labview)
-Knowledge in two or more of the following areas:magnetization/transport measurements, synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles/ferrofluids (e.g., powder metallurgy, template-based electrodeposition, wet-chemical methods, etc.), microstructural characterization (XRD, TEM, SEM, etc.), small-angle x-ray scattering
-Excellent command of English, basic knowledge of German and/or French
-Dissemination of scientific results (publication in high-impact journals and presentation at international conferences)
-Participation in undergraduate teaching
Application deadline is 21st September 2012.
