Contribute to groundbreaking research: 6 PhD positions open at HFML-FELIX

Do you have a strong interest in experimental condensed matter physics? Would you like to contribute to groundbreaking research in high magnetic fields and intense free-electron laser radiation? If so, then you have a part to play as a PhD candidate, working at our dynamic international research infrastructure: HFML-FELIX!

HFML-FELIX builds on a strong background in cutting-edge advanced spectroscopy using high magnetic fields, intense infrared/THz radiation and a combination thereof. As a PhD candidate, you will conduct research on one of the topics listed below.

  • Ultrafast phonon-driven magnetic switching
  • Shining new light on next-generation solar technologies
  • THz electronics
  • Exploring anti-ferromagnetic quantum materials in and out of equilibrium

You will actively cooperate with other PhD candidates, postdoctoral researchers and staff of HFML-FELIX working on related topics, and you will be involved in collaborations with external users to carry out related experiments. You will work as a teaching assistant in the Radboud University's teaching programme with a teaching load of up to 10% of your working time.
