The position is financed by the National Science Center (NCN) of Poland in the framework of the research project: FluMag – “Low-loss current- and flux quanta-controlled magnonics” (>>>), no 2021/43/I/ST3/00550 (OPUS22+LAP program), coordinated by prof. Jarosław W. Kłos (>>>).

The postdoc position is addressed to a researcher possessing PhD degree not longer than 7 years, which is interested in theoretical and numerical studies on spin waves and eddy currents in hybrid ferromagnetic/superconducting nanostructures.

The work will be conducted in Poznań in the international scientific team (>>>). FluMag (>>>) is a Polish-Austrian-Czech collaborative project constitute a rich panel of complementary expertise in theoretical and experimental physics of spin waves, superconductivity, advanced nanofabrication as well as microwave and optical spectroscopy methods. The Austrian Team is led by Oleksandr Dobrovolskiy from the University of Vienna (>>>) and the Czech Team by Michal Urbanek from the Central European Institute of Technology, Brno (>>>). The experimental partners are going to offer the positions for postdocs and PhD students as well.


The competition is open to individuals who meet the requirements specified in Article 113 of the Law on Higher Education and Science of 20 July 2018 (Journal of Laws of 2022, item 574, i.e. Article 113 as amended) and who meet the following requirements:

  1. Doctoral degree in physics or related sciences, obtained no later than 7 years before the year of employment in the project.
  2. Obtaining a doctoral degree in an entity other than Adam Mickiewicz University (see formal announcement for exemptions).
  3. Research experience in the field of physics of magnetism or superconductivity.
  4. Proven publication achievements.
  5. Knowledge of English (at least at B2 level)
  6. Acceptance of the employment at Adam Mickiewicz University for a period of not shorter than 12 months.
  7. During the period of receiving remuneration from the FluMag project, the employed person will not take remuneration (i) at another employer under an employment contract , including an employer based outside Poland and (ii) from direct costs of other NCN projects.

Task description

The postdoc will conduct  the theoretical and numerical studies on  the electromagnetic coupling of spin waves in ferromagnet with eddy currents in superconductor. In particular, the work will be concentrated on the development of theoretical an numerical models describing: (i)spin waves and eddy currents dynamics in dipolarly coupled hybrid systems: ‘ferromagnet’ – ‘superconductor in Meissner state’, (ii) formation and dynamics of Abrikosov lattice, based on Ginzburg-Landau model.
