Graduate Opportunities

  • PhD Openings in the Institute of Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz
    • The Institute of Physics at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz is seeking applicants to fill two PhD positions in their spintronics theory groups INSPIRE and TWIST. Successful applicants must hold an MSc or equivalent diploma and have a background in theoretical techniques in condensed matter physics. Candidates interested and/or experienced in spintronics, magnetization dynamics, the physics of antiferromagnetics or skyrmions, and micromagnetic modelling are desired. For more information about the research groups, please visit or
    • Applications are now open and will be reviewed until the positions are filled. To apply, send a curriculum vitae, list of publications, and at least two letters of recommendation to When submitting applications, please use the subject line “Spintronics PhD position application”.
  • Technical Sales Specialist at Montana Instruments
    • Montana Instruments is seeking a Technical Sales Specialist with experience in experimental research who has a MS or PhD in a scientific field (physics, engineering, chemistry, etc.). Successful candidates will be a contributor to a team that navigates the field of low temperature research and contributes ideas to address the needs of this scientific research community.

Undergraduate Opportunities

  • 2018 Denman Undergraduate Research Forum
    • Undergraduate students at any OSU campus are invited toa pply for a presentation slot at this year’s Deman Undergraduate Rsearch Forum, which will take place on Tuesday, April 3, in the Ohio Union.
    • Applications are due by 5:30pm on Wednesday, January 31. For more information or to apply, please visit
  • Marine Physical Laboratory Summer Internship, UC San Diego
    • The Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) at the world renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) seeks motivated undergraduates with exceptional aptitude for quantitative science, majoring in engineering, physics, chemistry, biology or geology. The application deadline is February 16, 2018, and more information can be found at
  • 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

  • Spintec
    • Spintec, in Grenoble, France, is looking to fill several positions to study magnetic skyrmions and their manipulations, with the goal of pushing forward fundamental knowledge of technological applications for memory and logics. Successful candidates will be able to develop novel material systems and ultra-high sensitivity and spatial resolution metrology techniques. Interested candidates should submit a CV and letter of motivation to Olivier Boulle, via email to More information about Spintec, can be found at
  • 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, Further information about Prof. Kent’s group at NYU can be found at
  • 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.
