Madrid, 23-27 JUL 2018: ICSNN: International Conference on Superlattices, Nanostructures and Nanodevices
The 20th edition of the ICSNN (International Conference on Superlattices, Nanostructures and Nanodevices) will take place this year in Madrid between 23 and 27 July 2018. The ICSNN is a biennial conference series with a tradition lasting back to the 1980s, usually being the largest satellite conference to the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS). The ICPS will be held in Montpellier (France) the week after ICSNN.
Similarly to the NFFA project in which we participate, the calls are for researchers who would like to use research infrastructures that are not available in their own centre, and are aimed to enhance the mobility and the collaboration within researchers and industries.

Dr. Dresselhaus used resonant magnetic fields and lasers to map out the electronic energy structure of carbon. She investigated the traits that emerge when carbon is interwoven with other materials: Stitch in some alkali metals, for example, and carbon can become a superconductor, in which an electric current meets virtually no resistance.

Job offer: Predoctoral Researcher - Magnetorheological fluids
BCMaterials is searching for a motivated Predoctoral Researcher for one year (extensible) research and development in Magnetorheological fluids. The research program consists in the synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) for application in magnetic fluids. The first objective of this research will be the development of novel MNP with high magnetization in the nanometric range. The second objective would be the formulation of magnetorheological fluids with great stability and high performance for dampers tuned by magnetic field.
Outstanding candidates are sought for a unique anticipated experimental postdoctoral opportunity to characterize and understand phase formation in bulk ferromagnetic alloys.
