Postdoc Spinoptical
Employer: CIC nanoGUNE
Location: San Sebastián, Guipuzcoa, Spain
Employment Start Date: July 1, 2019

Organization Description:

NanoGUNE, located in San Sebastián, Basque Country (Spain), is an R&D center with the mission of conducting basic and applied world-class research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The institute features an excellent infrastructure for advanced nano- scale research and engineering work, as well as related scientific studies.

Job Description:

In the Nanomagnetism group, a 6 months Postdoctoral position is available from July 2019. This position is linked to the European FET project FEMTOTERABYTE “Spinoptical nanoantenna-assisted magnetic storage at few nanometers on femtosecond timescale” and will be dedicated to the design, and testing ultrafast acoustics in hybrid noble and ferromagnetic metals spinoptical-nanoantennas. Nanoplasmonics and magnetism have both undergone a rapid development in the past decade, enabling completely new research directions.

Here we propose to combine the brand-new branch of nanoplasmonics – that of nanoscale spinoptics, providing extreme light confinement and the superior ability to manipulate photonic spin and orbital angular momenta, and nanomagnetism/molecular magnetism to establish a new fundamental way to control magnetism via light momenta spin-orbit mediated transfer of light momenta at the nanoscale in femtoseconds.

Specific objectives:

- To design and nanofabricate spin-nanoantennas and arrays of them;

- To characterize their linear and non-linear optical and magneto-elastic and magneto-optical properties with spectroscopy, microscopy, and ultrafast optics.


For consideration, the candidate is expected to have a relevant engineering or science PhD degree. The ideal candidate will furthermore be skilled in optical measurement techniques and data analysis. The working language at nanoGUNE is English.

Job Application:

Candidates should apply by 7th June 2019 through the form available on the webpage of the offer at, attaching a cover letter, a complete CV, and at least two reference letters grouped in a single PDF file. 

* Applications that do not follow the instructions indicated above will not be considered further. 
* The deadline for applications is 7th June 2019. 
* Please note that due to the large number of submissions expected, we cannot provide individual feedback.
