Elucidation of the coercivity mechanism by employing statistical physical approaches. The coercivity mechanism, closely related to the relaxation process from metastable states at finite temperatures, is a very important subject in non-equilibrium science. Theoretical research on permanent magnets has traditionally been developed based on micromagnetics. Recently, however, it is becoming increasingly clear that theoretical approaches on the atomic scale are required for a detailed understanding of coercivity. This subject is one of the main topics of the electronic theory group (led by Takashi Miyake, AIST) in ESICMM (an MEXT project). The successful candidate is expected to study physical properties of permanent magnets by applying and developing computational methods based on statistical physics in collaboration with NIMS Principal Researcher, Masamichi Nishino, and Seiji Miyashita's group in the University of Tokyo. This study will focus in particular on magnetization reversal and propagation, nucleation, response properties, etc.

Requirements

The applicant should hold a PhD degree, or should be expecting to obtain one by March 31, 2018. Familiarity with condensed matter physics, as well as a working knowledge on programming skills for simulations is required.

Candidates should send the following by e-mail in Word or pdf format.

  1. CV (with photo)
  2. List of publications
  3. Reprints of three selected papers
  4. Brief summary of past accomplishments
  5. Names and e-mail addresses of two references
