Applications are invited for a Research Associate position to work on an EPSRC-funded project: A New Method to Make Programmable Transducers in Microelectromechanical Systems (P-MEMS) .

We recently demonstrated a new technique to change the magnetisation of ferromagnetic microresonators in a commercial MEMS process by applying external magnetic fields at locally elevated temperatures. In this research project we will build on this method to develop new micromagnetic models to optimise microfabrication processes for P-MEMS, and these will be then applied to realise structures targeting potential applications such as programmable microfluidic devices, etc. This project will be supervised by Dr Ali Mohammadi in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering and Professor Simon Bending in the Department of Physics.

Applicants should have micromagnetic modelling experience and familiarity with some of the available modelling tools such as OOMMF etc. A background in the temperature-dependant behaviour of ferromagnetic materials would also be an advantage. Hands-on experience with standard microfabrication techniques for patterning MEMS devices is a desired attribute, although full training with the tools in our David Bullet Nanofabrication Facility will be provided to the successful applicant .

This is a full-time (36.5 hours per week), fixed-term position for up to 18 months, which is available from 15 May 2019.

University of Bath holds Bronze award in Athena SWAN scheme. We are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment. We constantly improve the present gender balance within the Department, and particularly welcome applications from women, who are currently under-represented in research posts.

Informal enquiries about the role should be directed to Dr Ali Mohammadi (A.mohammadi [at] bath[.]ac[.]uk), Tel: +44 (0)1225 383325 .
