Undergraduate Opportunities

  • 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

  • Hauser Group, University of Alabama
    Rapid-response device project starting in August that makes impedance measurements on a flexible circuit board.  Circuit design experience is preferred, but the position is very new and the requirements are fluid.
    Interested parties should send a CV to Prof. Adam Hausser: ahauser@ua.edu
  • 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 olivier.boulle@cea.fr. More information about Spintec, can be found at www.spintec.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.
