We demonstrate that a current pulse of a non-uniform spin-polarized current density in a nanomagnet can drive, apart from magnetization reversal a static magnetic vortex. This vortex configuration can be achieved in low shape anisotropy spin valves of elliptical cross-sectional area. These non-uniform configurations exist also in presence of either ion mill damages below the nano-aperture or thermal effects at low temperature. We performed a numerical experiment of spin-torque driven ferromagnetic resonance in a magnetic vortex configuration, our results predict a frequency response with a few maxima and minima related to small oscillation of the vortex state around its equilibrium configuration.
