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.
