Nanomaterials Physics Division in Faculty of Physics of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznańannounces a scholarship competition for master students. The scholarship is financed by the National Science Center of Poland as a part of the SHENG 1 call for Polish-Chinese research project: SpinSkySpin waves in magnetic skyrmion crystals, no 2018/30/Q/ST3/00416, coordinated by prof. Maciej Krawczyk.

The project is implemented in international cooperation with the group of prof. Yan Zhou from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, China.

The scholarship is addressed to students interested in theoretical research, in particular the study of spin waves in thin ferromagnetic films with complex magnetization textures, in particular in the presence of skyrmions.


• student of full-time or part-time of master program implemented at university in the territory of Poland;

• high motivation to work;

• knowledge of the English language;

• fast learning skill;

• independence, good organization of work;

• ability to work in an international team.

Task description:

The student will be involved in scientific research carried out in the international research team, conducting micromagnetic simulations. In particular, in a system composed of the array of interacting skyrmions distributed on a thin layer of the ferromagnetic material. Carrying out systematic calculations for various system parameters will allow understanding of occurring interactions and optimization of the structure in terms of effective excitation of short spin waves and synchronization of oscillations of skyrmions. The doctoral student's tasks will include the development and interpretation of the results, cooperation in the preparation of scientific publications and presentation of results at the international conferences.

Project type: NCN SHENG 1 – ST3;

Deadline for application submission: October 17, 2019, 23:59;

Submission form: email.
