  1. Magneto-optics in 2D heterostructures.
  2. Fabrication of magnetic alloy films and compositionally graded structures.
  3. Multi-scale spatial surface functionalization by picosecond laser pulses.
  4. Lab-on-tip: design and fabrication of beyond the state-of-the-art functional nanoprobes.
  5. Quantum magnetism in novel graphene nanostructures: theory and experiment.
  6. Addressing organic nanomagnetism with superconducting quantum circuits.
  7. Metamaterials for plasmon-enhanced energy conversion.
  8. Spin pumping in 2D and topological materials.


We offer an international and competitive environment, a state-of-the-art infrastructure, and the possibility to perform research at the highest level. Also, we promote teamwork in a diverse and inclusive environment and welcome all kinds of applicants regardless of age, disability, gender, nationality, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
