OFFER DESCRIPTION

The candidate will explore the application of ultrashort structured pulses in ultrafast magnetism, an emerging field that is opening exciting scenarios in laser-matter interaction at the most fundamental level, merging the fields of Optics and Magnetism. The candidate will count not only with the collaboration of the research team at ALF-USAL, but also with the collaboration of the research group on simulation of magnetic nanostructures SINAMAG at USAL, in particular with Prof. Luis López-Díaz and Dr. Rocío Yanes.

Successful candidates will have the possibility to consolidate their own independent research lines and to promote collaborative research among the following research lines:

  • Development of theoretical simulations of laser-matter interactions in solids, including particle-in-cell (PIC).
  • Development of theoretical codes (DFT, atomistic models, etc.) to describe the interaction of structured laser pulses with magnetic materials.
  • Implementation of high-performance computing simulations of laser-matter interaction with magnetic materials, with special focus on antiferromagnetic materials.
  • Theoretical study of the generation of skyrmionic structures using structured laser pulses.

Theoretical study of the manipulation of magnetic properties of antiferromagnetic materials driven by femtosecond and attosecond timescales.

Responsibilities

  • To develop and implement theoretical models of laser-matter interaction along the described research lines.
  • To conduct independent research as well as in collaboration with other members of the group.
  • Co-advise undergraduate and Master students at University of Salamanca.

Benefits

  • Dynamic and international working environment.
  • Training and access to a wide range of scientific facilities.
  • Soft skills training.
  • Employment conditions:
    • Full-time employment contract initially limited to three years.
