Master’s thesis position in Microfabrication of Structured Magnetic Surfaces

Aalto University

Finland

February 13, 2022

Description

A Master's thesis position in engineering of structured magnetic surfaces is available in the Active Matter group, Department of Applied Physics (School of Science) at Aalto University.

Your role and goals

We are looking for a student to do his/her Master of Science (M.Sc.) thesis with us on engineering of structured magnetic surfaces. You will be developing microfabrication processes for producing ordered and/or disordered spiky surface which in turn will yield a spatially undulating magnetic field. You should have firm interest and understanding of material science, microfabrication, micro/nanoscale phenomena, and process development.

Your work will be a part of a bigger project funded by PREIN (https: // prein.fi/) and you will contribute towards a functioning surface on which we aim to manipulate microscopic particles in a controlled manner. Your contributions will be outlined in your thesis and in the possible scientific publication. We expect hard-working attitude and willingness to grow as an engineer/physicist during the project.

Your experience and ambitions

We offer a high-tech working environment, with challenging and interesting topics related to active matter, micro and nanoengineering, advanced materials, self-assembly, electromagnetic tweezers. In return, we would like the student to have:

  • Experimental know-how in material engineering or applied physics

  • Excellent study record

  • Good English & team working skills

  • Ready to apply?

    To apply for the position, please submit your application including the attachments mentioned below as one single PDF document in English through our online recruitment system by using the link on Aalto University's web page ("Apply Now”).

  • CV

  • Motivation letter (max 1 page)

  • Study transcripts

  • The deadline for applications is 13.02.2022. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible since we aim to fill this position as soon as a suitable candidate is found. The employment contract for M.Sc. thesis is aimed for 6 months at full-time capacity. The workload can be executed on a part-time basis for 12 months, depending on the ongoing activities of the employed student.

    Please note: Aalto University's employees and visitors should apply for the position via our internal system Workday -> find jobs (not external aalto.fi webpage on open positions) by using their existing Workday user account
