PhD Scholarship in Development of Nanostructured Magnetic Materials for High-frequency Power Electronics

A PhD scholarship in sustainable development is available at Technical University of Denmark. The funds for this fellowship are available for 3 years. This position is closed on January 20, 2020.

We look for a talented PhD student in Physics/Materials Physics to join the project "Towards Integrated Nano-Magnetics for High Frequency Power Supplies (HiFMag)" supported by the Danish Council for Independent Research.

Today magnetic components such as inductors and transformers of power supplies are large compared to other electronic components. The challenge in realizing smaller, faster and in turn greener power supplies - e.g. for cell phone chargers – is integration of magnetic materials that can operate efficiently in the components at high frequencies (>10 MHz, to be used in switch mode power supplies). The HiFMag project aims at designing and integrating new magnetic materials – with low power losses and high permeability at high frequencies – into microfabricated chips of lithographically patterned coils and circuits. For this, we combine expertise at DTU (Electro, Nanolab, and Physics) on electronic engineering, microfabrication and magnetism. As a PhD student in our group, you will - as a materials physicist – contribute to the nanoscale design of magnetic materials. Your tasks will be to simulate the magnetic behavior of different material designs and to measure the magnetic properties of synthesized materials. We expect that you – after an initial training period - will go beyond the technical side of measurements and simulations, and develop ideas which could leap forward the design of the materials. The PhD project will be supervised by Professor Cathrine Frandsen from DTU Physics and co-supervised by Associate Professor Marco Beleggia from DTU Nanolab and Professor Matti Knaapilafrom DTU Physics. Most of the PhD project will be carried out at the DTU campus in Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark. The project additionally includes a 3-to-6-month external stay at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden in Gteborg, Sweden, where the candidate will extend his/her work on magnetic simulations and magnetic measurements in collaboration with Professor Christer Johansson. Qualifications You recently got (or are close to getting) a master degree in physics, engineering, or similar field with outstanding results. You have solid theoretical understanding of physics, not least within in electromagnetism and materials physics – as evidenced by excellent grades in relevant courses and independent accomplishments in previous projects. You are hard-working and have a keen interest in research and innovation. You are motivated by problem solving. You are creative by mind, able to think out of the box, and have the drive to try to push the limits of what can be done. It is important that you are able to work both independently and in a team. HiFMag is a team effort and you will be working closely with the other HiFMag team members from other disciplines. Successful experience with physics lab work and computer programming, e.g. on magnetic materials, is a clear advantage. Excellent written and spoken English skills are mandatory. The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in the PhD programme at DTU Physics. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the We offer DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and an academic freedom tempered by responsibility. Salary and appointment terms The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years. The appointment is open from February 1, 2020.
