Prof. Johan Åkerman's group at The Physics Department, University of Gothenburg (GU) announces four post-doctoral positions within projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC), the Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Knut & Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW). The Åkerman group continuous to show a very active and internationally visible research presence with the goal to uncover novel magnetic, spintronic and magnonic phenomena for utilization in nano-electronic applications at microwave and THz frequencies. For this purpose we develop novel frequency and time-resolved magnetodynamic tools based both in the electrical and optical domain and collaborate with local and international groups on THz electronics and Nanoplasmonics.
Please note that all applications must be made online using the GU application system. More information about the positions can be found here.
MML (International Symposium on Metallic Multilayers) is one of the best thin film magnetism conferences out there. The 8th version of it was no exception. Randy Dumas and Johan Åkerman attended and presented two posters [1,2] and an invited talk . The next MML 2016 will be held in Uppsala, Sweden! Expect to see the entire Åkerman Group to be attending, if allowed.

Yeyu Fang awarded the prestigious "Chinese Government Scholarship for Outstanding Self-financed Students Studying Abroad"
PhD student Yeyu Fang is one of twelve Chinese graduate students in Sweden awarded the Chinese Government Scholarship 2012 for outstanding self-financed students studying abroad.
Yeyu received a diploma at a ceremony at the Chinese Embassy in Stockholm on Friday, May 17. Prof. Johan Åkerman held a short speech as representative of the supervisors of the 12 students.
Big congrats from everybody in the group!
