Subject: PhD in first-principles study of topologically non-trivial spin textures

Category: Job

From: Stefan Heinze

Date: 18-Feb-2015 15:04


The spintronics theory group at the Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Kiel ( is opening a PhD position in the field of first-principles theory of magnetic skyrmions at interfaces and surfaces. Skyrmions are localized, stable magnetic structures which have been observed in chiral crystals and are promising for future spintronic applications. Recently, skyrmions have also been discovered in ultra-thin transition-metal films at surfaces which opened an entirely new class of systems.
The PhD candidate will focus on the exploration of complex magnetic structures at surfaces and interfaces starting from first principles electronic structure theory. She/he is expected to perform first-principles calculations using density functional theory as implemented in the FLEUR code ( to explore magnetic interactions at transition-metal interfaces. The total energy calculations are mapped to an effective spin Hamiltonian which is solved using Monte-Carlo and spin dynamics simulations.
The spintronics theory group is working in close collaboration with a number of experimental groups at the universities of Hamburg, Paris and Glasgow. The candidate is expected to take an active part in the collaboration with the experimental groups in order to contribute to the understanding of present and future experiments.
In order to apply for the position, the candidate should have an outstanding master degree (or equivalent) in condensed matter physics, material science or physics. A very good knowledge of solid state physics is expected and experience in the application of electronic structure theory, Monte-Carlo or spin dynamics simulations is preferential. Programming skills are expected. As the project involves international teams, a very good level of English is expected. Women are especially encouraged to apply. Severely handicapped people will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualifications. The position is for 3 years and the salary and benefits will be provided with respect to TVL.
Interested candidates are asked to send their resume, list of publications, letter of motivation, and contact addresses of academic references in electronic form (under the subject: PhD-2015/1) or by regular mail to
Prof. Dr. Stefan Heinze,
Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics
Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel
Leibnizstr. 15
24098 Kiel, Germany
Consideration of candidates will start immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Info Beasiswa 2015 di PhD students - 5G anticipatory networks


Call for PhD students - 5G anticipatory networks

We look for brilliant PhD students, we offer an exiting research program and a very competitive salary.

Deadline: March 15

The rapid growth in mobile broadband network data lead to the unprecedented speed of 4G LTE deployment. The evolution calls for sustainable capacity growth and performance improvement in the next generation of wireless systems, namely 5G. The success of 5G heavily relies on delivering satisfactory user experience at a low operational cost. In this context, research and development (R&D) is required not only for technological innovation at the device level, but also management system design for the flexibility necessary to predict and adapt to network usage. To this end, anticipation is a promising and new approach. By predicting and adapting to upcoming events at various time scales, an anticipatory-enabled 5G network dramatically improves the operation quality and efficiency in comparison to the existing systems. Deploying anticipatory networking with effective prediction of network behaviour offers a twin advantage: First, resources ranging from spectrum and power to netwo!
 rk interfaces buffers can be managed optimally. Second, network operators can jointly plan how to share infrastructure and resources to provide service with substantially reduced expenditure.

The ACT5G project takes an inter-sector approach for anticipatory networking for 5G. The project fuses and integrates the scientific expertise of the participating academic sites with the industrial know-how of the consortium. The R&D core of ACT5G consists of models, methods, concepts, and algorithms for network anticipation and network reaction. The R&D tasks are carried out along with researcher training.

The PhD training programme of ACT5G is designed the maximize the partners' synergy, to promote career opportunities of the ACT5G Early-Stage Researchers in the European ICT arena, and thus generate new expertise and human capital for the European Research Area.

The ACT5G Consortium is starting the recruiting process for four PhD students as “Early-Stage Researchers” (ESRs) at Linköping University (LiU - Sweden) and Politecnico di Milano (Polimi - Italy), on the research area of Anticipatory

Networking, aiming at predicting traffic and environment changes in order to optimize wireless network resources and operations.

In particular the following four topics will be assigned to the recruited researchers:
• ESR1: Network Data Analytics [Academic Site: Polimi]
• ESR2: Wireless Link Status Anticipation [Academic Site: LiU]
• ESR3: Resource & Management Optimization for Wireless Software-defined Networking [Academic Site: LiU]
• ESR4: Performance and Enablers of Infrastructure and Resource Sharing [Academic Site: Polimi]

Each post is funded for 36 Months by the EU under the rules of the MSCA ITN EID Scheme1 and provides a very competitive salary (3710 euro/month before taxes and social security fees, +600 euro/month if family obligations exist). The recruited researchers are required to
• follow a PhD program at the respective academic sites and
• spend 50% of their project involvement at Alcatel Lucent - Bell Labs, in Stuttgart, Germany.
