Employment and Fellowship

Graduate Opportunities

  • 2019 NSF/DOE/AFOSR Quantum Summer School Applications Open
    • The NSF/DOE Quantum Science Summer School is part of NSF’s “Quantum Leap” program. The 2019 edition will focus on “Fundamentals and Applications of Quantum Devices”, providing an excellent education and fun opportunity to graduate students and postdocs in the fields of condensed matter physics, materials science, and disciplines of quantum science in engineering, chemistry, and related fields.
    • Applications are due by January 31, 2019. More information about the program and application instructions can be found on their website.
  • Rising Stars in Physics Workshop at Stanford Applications Open
    • The Department of Physics at Stanford invites top early career women (postdocs and last-year PhD students) in Physics and Astronomy who are interested in careers in academia to apply for an expenses-paid, two-day workshop (Apr 10-11, 2019). Participants will have an opportunity to present their research, as well as attend panel discussions with faculty focused on issues related to navigating the early stages of an academic career.
    • Applications are due by January 25, 2019. More information about the program and application instructions can be found on their website.

Undergraduate Opportunities

  • Marine Phsyical Laboratory Summer Internship Program at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California.
    • Inquisitive and motivated undergraduates with exceptional aptitude for quantitative science, majoring in engineering, physics, chemistry, biology or geology, are encouraged to apply for a summer research internship in marine science and technology. This ten- week summer internship program offers qualified students the opportunity to work with some of the most notable scientists in the world while earning a modest salary.
    • For more information, visit their website or see this flyer.
  • For undergraduates seeking research opportunities more generally within OSU, the best way to find a research position is to meet with faculty directly. (Research groups don’t post positions through OSU.)
    • Look into the faculty at OSU and the research they conduct. Interested in the MRSEC? Visit out our People page.
    • Meet with professors about their research and projects; share your enthusiasm and skills!
    • Network with students and faculty at events. It’s a great way to learn more about a group or project and get involved.
      • CEM Coffee Hour, Wednesdays at 3:30, PRB Second Floor Bridge
      • Physics T.E.A. (Talking, Eating, Action), Thursdays at 3:00, PRB Commons
      • Astro Coffee, each morning at 10:30 in the Astronomy Conference Room (4054 McPherson)

Postdoctoral Openings

  • Oxitronics Group, Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales
    • Intel is sponsoring a twelve-month, renewable postdoctural position to help build a new type of spin transistor. Interested parties can contact Manuel Bibes or visit the Group’s website for more information.
  • Spintec
    • Spintec, in Grenoble, France, is looking to fill a postdoctoral position in spintronics on magnetic skyrmions. The successful candidate will be part of a larger project, which aims to push forward fundamental knowledge on magnetic skyrmions in view of technological applications for memory and logics. Applicants should hold a phd in solid state physics or related discipline. An expertise in nanomagnetism or spintronics as well as nanofabrication would be a strong asset. Interested candidates should submit a CV and letter of motivation to Olivier Boulle, via email to olivier.boulle@cea.fr.
  • NYU Center for Quantum Phenomena, Kent Research Group
    • Research focuses on the study of magnetization switching by spin-transfer torques in nanometer scale magnetic tunnel junction devices. The goal is to characterize, model, optimize and understand the ns-time scale switching characteristics of such devices. Successful candidates will use and further develop high-speed electrical test stands and an automated wafer prober. Experience with electronic transport measurements, magnetic materials, microwave techniques and magnetic device characterization is desirable.
      Applications, including a CV with the names of three references, should be sent to Prof. Kent by email, andy.kent@nyu.edu. Further information about Prof. Kent’s group at NYU can be found at www.physics.nyu.edu/kentlab/
  • The Skyrmion Project
    • Five positions to be filled, with expertise ranging across materials preparation and discovery, experimentation (including the use of neutrons, muons and x-rays) and theoretical modeling.
      The EPSRC-funded program is a six year UK-based project built around a consortium of five premier Universities with input from international academic institutions and industrial partners.
