Individuals with backgrounds in Physics, Materials science, Electrical engineering, Physical Chemistry, and related areas can join the FMD Group. If you have an interest in condensed matter physics, low dimensional systems, device fabrication, material and device characterization (electrical and magnetic), programming (micromagnetic, python, or similar), instrumentation, etc., the group can be a good choice for you. Prior research experiences in these fields will be preferred.
As a researcher in the group, you need to be intellectually curious, safety-conscious in the experimental laboratories, methodical approach, ethical, self-motivated, with good communication skills, capable of working effectively in collaboration with colleagues/collaborators, and with a good personality to fit for the group.
We encourage underrepresented individuals in science and engineering to apply to join the group
A. PhD studentships:
Topic-1: Materials engineering for neuromorphic computing with resistive switching memory
The candidate should have an outstanding track record of studies in condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, electrical engineering, or a closely related area and a strong interest in experimental physics. Ideally, he/she should have previous experience in materials engineering. A solid background in experimental nanoscience is an asset.
Topic-2: Computational study of new insights into the spins manipulations in functional oxides for neuromorphic computing
The candidate should have an outstanding track record of studies in condensed matter physics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics or a closely related area and a strong interest in computational physics. Ideally, he/she should have previous experience in density functional theory (DFT). A solid background in programming is an asset.
All interested students are highly encouraged to consult with Tuhin Maity to discuss PhD opportunities well in advance.
Application Deadline for Varsha 2021 semester is 26th June 2021
B. Post-Doctoral Positions:
No funded Post-Doctoral position is available.
The group can host externally funded fellows.
