Postdoctoral researcher – Hybrid Spintronic-MEMS Devices , INL, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, Braga

PD8-JG-2012 – Hybrid Spintronic-MEMS Devices

The International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) seeks a highly-qualified, self-motivated postdoctoral researcher to participate in the research of the MEMS and Micro Energy Harvesting Devices group.

The Group of MEMS and Micro Energy Harvesting Devices of INL welcomes applicants with previous experience in cleanroom processing of spintronic sensors/elements (spin valve sensors, magnetic tunnel junctions, permanent micromagnets, flux guides, …) combined with MEMS technology (in- and out-plane actuators, microresonators, and related) and testing of microsystems.

This project will be developed in collaboration with the Spintronics group at INL and other international research groups, which will work on the footprint optimization of MEMS accelerometers using magnetic sensors, sub-micron resolved magnetic imaging scanning platforms, and ultra-sensitive magnetic detectors enhanced by MEMS devices.

The successful candidate must hold a PhD degree in Physics, Materials Engineering, Electronics or related, possess excellent communications in English and a good track-record for disseminating results to the scientific community. Candidates with additional know-how on electronics and hands-on experience with CMOS design will be preferred.

In addition to the opportunity to access the state-of-the-art facilities and work in a multidisciplinary environment, INL will offer the successful candidate an exciting and highly competitive research environment, including salaries in line with those offered by other international research organisations, and a comprehensive fringe benefit package. Researchers at INL will benefit from the various social facilities available at INL, including the INL nursery.The position is for 2 years. Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae (with a full list of publications) and a cover letter describing their research experience and the contact details of two referees.
