The FunNanosurf Group is looking for a Postdoctoral fellow to work with graphene-based nanodevices!

The FunNanosurf Group is looking for a Postdoctoral fellow to work on hybrid graphene-based three-terminal nanodevices. This position offers a unique opportunity to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research. The postdoctoral position is for a term of 1 year and renewable. Apply soon!
Feb 17, 2020

FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group at the ICMAB (Institute of Material Science of Barcelona, Bellaterra, Spain) interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices with the goal of developing functional molecular-based platforms for electronic and/or sensing applications.

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create hybrid graphene-based three-terminal nanodevices. The postdoctoral fellow will oversee the design, fabrication and characterization of graphene-based electrodes separated by a nano-gap (<2 nm) using controlled electroburning, as well as the analysis and treatment of the experimental data. Electronic transport measurements of three-terminal nanodevices will be performed in a probe station under various environmental conditions to assess their efficiency and robustness as electronic sensors.

The devices will be prepared using molecular-based materials as active components, an area in which the group has extensive experience. A key aspect of the project is the functionalization of graphene electrodes via e.g. covalent and supramolecular attachment. We thus seek a candidate with excellent nanofabrication skills, who ideally has a background in graphene nanotechnologies.

The postdoctoral fellow will join a lab that actively collaborates with other international groups, and hence research stays at other institutions will be part of the project.

This position offers a unique opportunity to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research and the postdoctoral fellow is expected to publish her/his results in leading journals. The postdoctoral position is for a term of 1 year and renewable.

Requirements

For this position, we are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in experimental physics and nanofabrication. Applicants should have the following qualifications:

  • PhD in experimental physics
  • Expertise in electronic transport measurements
  • Knowledge of graphene nanodevice fabrication
  • Data analysis and programming skills
  • Fluent in English
  • Good communication and organizational skills
  • Strong publication record
  • Ability to work independently as well as with interdisciplinary teams

Applicants are invited to submit a cover letter and CV, including the contact information (name, institution, phone number, and e-mail address) of 3 referees.

Applications will be considered as they are received.
