( announcement in pdf format >>> )

The postdoc position is financed by the National Science Center of Poland (NCN) as a part of the OPUS-20 LAP call for the research project: “Guiding, shaping and amplifying signals in strongly coupled electromagnetic-magnonic circuits”, no 2020/39/I/ST3/02413, coordinated by prof. Maciej Krawczyk and conducted in the collaboration with the group of prof. Jamal Berakdar, Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Halle, Germany.

The position is addressed to a researcher possessing PhD degree not longer than 7 years and interested in theoretical studies, and numerical simulations in the cross-disciplinary area of photonics and magnonics.


  • Research experience in analytical models and/or numerical modeling in photonics or solid state physics, in particular in the area of photonics-magnonics;
  • Very good publication track record in the relevant areas;
  • High motivation to work, independence, and good organization of work;
  • Ability to work in an international team.

According to the NCN rule, the PhD degree has to be awarded by another institution than AMU or candidate has completed a continuous and evidenced post-doctoral fellowship of at least 10 months in another institution than AMU and in another country than Poland.
