Open position for a PhD researcher: Superconductors for physics applications at ICMAB

Application deadline:

This PhD call offer is entitled: “High field superconductors for high-energy physics applications” and is offered by the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group at ICMAB.  We are searching for a candidate willing to undertake a PhD in experimental physics, in the field of physics of superconductors, with the following focus directions: Study of the vortex pinning and dynamics at very high magnetic fields (up to 16T) and low temperatures (down to 4.2K), from the DC regime to the microwave regime (up to the GHz) of high temperature superconducting materials; Study the relationship between the microwave response of the superconducting mixed state and the material microstructure (thickness, defects, artificial pinning centers…).
