Postdoc position: theoretical and numerical studies on reconfigurable topological properties and frustrated ground states in magnonics

( announcement in pdf format >>> )

The position is financed by the National Science Center of Poland as a part of the OPUS-19 call for the research project: “New platform for study wave phenomenon – reconfigurable topological properties and frustrated ground states in magnonics”, no 2020/37/B/ST3/03936, coordinated by prof. Maciej Krawczyk.

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 area of spin-wave dynamics in ferromagnetic nanostructures.


  • Research experience in numerical modeling and/or developing analytical models in solid state physics or electromagnetism, in particular in the area of magnetizm;
  • 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.

Task description:

Performing micromagnetic simulations and/or use of the analytical models for description of the remagnetization process and spin-wave dynamics in the antidot lattices (ADLs) based on perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) thin films with inhomogeneous magnetization. Writing the manuscripts and supervising of the PhD and master students.

Project type: NCN OPUS-19 – ST3.
