Open Position: Master Thesis Research in Nanocomposite materials for energy harvesting

Deadline: Jan 14, 2023

The NN group at ICMAB is seeking a Master student who would like to do his research project in the area of nanomaterials for energy harvesting in the framework of a Llavor AGAUR project.

28 November 2022

Position description


The Nanoparticles & Nanocomposites (N&N) group at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) is seeking for a motivated Master Student to join the ChargeTheM (A novel wireless charging technology based in Thermoelectric and Magnetic nanomaterials) project (Llavor, AGAUR, Gencat, FEDER).

The final 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 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 6 to 9-month contract (approx. salary 800 to 1000 €/month) to do the Master Thesis Research Project.

Expected incorporation date is January-February 2023.

Candidate profile

We are seeking for highly-motivated last-year Master student holding a degree in nanotechnology, chemistry, physics or electrical engineering or similar.

Candidates should be familiar with data analysis and show proficient oral and written English skills.

A background in the design of circuits or the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials would be valued.


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 should be sent to Pablo Guardia (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
