Scientific position for multiscale simulation of magnetic materials and magnetic fields

/ /

BCMaterials, Basque Center on Materials, Applications and Nanostructures, is an autonomous research center belonging to Ikerbasque, the Basque Foundation for Science and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). The center is included in the BERC’s (Basque Excellence Research Centers) network and its mission is to generate knowledge on the new generation of materials, turning this knowledge into (multi)functional solutions and devices for the benefit of society.

In the context of a research project funded by the Spanish Government, we offer a one-year scientific position to advance in the development of the guidance, detection and actuation procedures in a magnetotaxis system for the remote control of magnetotactic bacteria as nanorobots for biomedical applications.

The position is focused primarily on multiscale simulation (micromagnetic and finite elements macroscopic behavior) of magnetic materials for sensors to detect the presence and movement of magnetotactic bacteria. Additional tasks will include simulation of magnetic fields and field gradients, and magnetic hyperthermia fields.

More specifically, the successful candidate will be in charge of implementing the numerical integration of the Landau-Lipchitz-Gilbert equation of motion for the magnetization dynamics in COMSOL in order to obtain the material parameters required to perform finite element modeling (in COMSOL) of the electromagnetic behavior of the material.
