The Nanoparticles & Nanocomposites (N&N) group at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) is seeking for a motivated Ph.D. candidate to join the Charge-Therm project.

The goal of the project is to develop a novel wireless power transfer technology for charging implantable medical devices. The student will develop novel nanocomposites to be implemented in a charging device.

The research project will be carried out at the N&N group under the supervision of Dr. Pablo Guardia. The candidate will have access to cutting-edge research facilities at ICMAB-CSIC surrounded by the international environment of the Universiat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB)campus.

Job offer:

We offer a 3-year contract (annual renewal) with an optional extra one year.

Expected incorporation date is November 2022.

The candidate will be registered for the Materials Science Ph.D. Program of the UAB to pursue the PhD

Candidate profile:

We are seeking for highly-motivated candidates holding a Master degree in nanotechnology, chemistry, physics or electrical engineering. Last year Master student applications are also welcome. Candidates should be familiar with data analysis and show proficient oral and written English skills. A background in the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials would be considered.

Application:

Interested candidates are welcome to submit their CV along with a motivation letter describing their scientific interests and the contact details of 2 references. Applications have to be sent to Pablo Guardia (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) before 1 October 2022. Pre-selected candidates will be interviewed (Personal or online interview).
