Position title
Research Fellow Position in Magnetic Nanolayers and Nanostructures -group of PD Dr. habil. Amitesh Paul (RF-2020001)

The Materials and Science Engineering Program (group of Paul) is looking for 1 scientist to lead experimental research projects in magnetic nanolayer materials related to fundamental aspects of interface magnetism. Contract duration: 2 years.

Project Details

Modern facilities for the growth of thin film samples using ultrahigh-vacuum sputtering and atomic layer deposition as well as state-of-the-art laboratory thin film characterization tools (X-ray diffraction, X-ray reflectometry, SQUID magnetometry, TEM) will be available. Our group extensively uses leading international Quantum Beam facilities (neutron/synchrotron science facilities and ion beam accelerators) as major research tools. Our specialty technique is polarized neutron reflectometry, small-angle-scattering in specular and off-specular modes and X-ray absorption. We work in a collaborative international environment.


Magnetic nanostructures, multiferroics, magnetic oxide films, stress/defect engineering of novel physical properties, electronic/structural instabilities or phase transitions in magnetic thin films, polarized neutron/X-ray reflectometry.

Selection Criteria

- PhD degree in Physics or Material Science (essential)

- Strong background in condensed matter physics (preferable)

- Strong interest in thin film deposition and/or structural/magnetic characterization (essential)

- Strong interest in polarized neutron reflectometry and/or polarized synchrotron spectroscopy (essential)

- Strong interest to work temporarily at large-scale research facilities in China, Europe, United States, Japan and/or Australia (essential)

- Good communication skills, good command of English (essential)

- Ability to work independently as well as in a team environment (essential)

- Ability to author scientific reports and scientific publications (essential)


- Salary range: up to $49,000 / year (depending on qualifications of the candidate)

- Subsidized housing at GTIIT, China

- Health insurance: regular cover for Chinese citizens or private health insurance for foreigners

- Professional conference travel allowance


- Application deadline: Open till filled

- Send below required documents electronically to: amitesh.paul@gtiit.edu.cn

  1. Curriculum vitae and personal statements
  2. A publication list
  3. Three letters of recommendation (one from the mentor for PhD and/or Master’s studies)
  4. A short research plan outline (up to one page in length)
  5. Degree certificates with certified English translation for both the PhD and Master’s degrees
