PhD positions - Topological Solitons in Ferroics for Unconventional Computing
We are hiring now!
Are you passionate about research? Do you want to get a PhD in an emerging field that will impact the future? Would you like to work in an international multidisciplinary team of 11 PhD students? Join us at TOPOCOM!
TOPOCOM is a network of leading European groups from different disciplines and sectors selected to provide comprehensive training on the integrative concepts underlying the science of topological solitons in ferroic materials and their application in unconventional computing. To realize their potential, the consortium comprises some of the best groups in materials synthesis, device development, characterization and modelling. We will explore soliton properties, model and study their dynamical responses to external stimuli, and design and fabricate devices, where solitons carry out ultralow-power computing and sensing functions.
Generally, candidates can apply for up to three positions, indicating this in the cover letter.
What TOPOCOM will offer
- A thorough scientific education in the frame of a doctoral training program.
- The possibility to participate in specific international courses, workshops and conferences.
- A strong involvement in a European research project with high international visibility.
- The possibility to perform research visits to internationally renowned research labs in Europe.
- A prestigious three-year MSCA Fellowship.
- A competitive salary including mobility and family allowances.
TOPOCOM emphasizes accessibility and encourages qualified candidates to apply regardless of gender identity, ability, status or ethnic and cultural background.
Researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting beneficiary for more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before their date of recruitment. Compulsory national service, short stays such as holidays, and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account. For international European research organisations , international organisations, or entities created under Union law, recruited researchers must not have spent more than 12 months in the 36 months immediately before their date of recruitment in the same appointing organisation. Note that the mobility rule applies to the (first) beneficiary where the researcher is recruited. In case of multiple recruitments, the mobility rule only applies to the first recruitment. For details, please refer to the Guide for Applicants (PDF).
The University of Crete, and IBM Research have extended application deadlines until January 20th 2024.
For all others, the initial deadline was December 1st, but positions will stay open until filled.
