Two ICMAB researchers granted with Juan de la Cierva postdoctoral fellowships with Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent

Dr. José M. Muñoz and Dr. Francesca Leonardi, from the NANOMOL group, have been granted with a Juan de la Cierva Fellowship to continue their postdoctoral research under the supervision of Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent.

05 July 2017

Francesca arrived at ICMAB in May 2015 and is working since then under the supervision of Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent on the development of organic transistors operated in liquid environment. She has been granted with a Juan de la Cierva-Incorporation fellowship.

Jose M. Muñoz arrived in February 2016 and his postdoctoral research, under the supervision of Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent and Dr. Núria Crivillers, is focused on nanostructured carbon materials for the development of electrochemical pollutant sensors. José has been granted with a Juan de la Cierva-Formation fellowship.

Molecular Electronics: Materials And Devices

Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent’s research group is focused on the design and synthesis/preparation of new functional molecular materials for their application in organic/molecular electronic devices. Their work ranges from fundamental studies in order to better understand materials properties to a more applied perspective aiming at developing proof-of-principle devices. Their ares of interest include synthesis of novel functional molecules (electroactive molecules, organic radicals, etc.), surface self-assembly, crystal engineering, molecular switches, organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), electrolyte-gated field-effect transistors (EGOFETs), charge transport and organic-based (bio)-sensors.

Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent counts with two ERC projects: a first ERC Starting Grant for "Surface Self-Assembled Molecular Electronic Devices: Logic Gates, Memories and Sensors", and a second ERC Proof-of-Concept for “Large Area Organic Devices with bar assisted meniscus shearing technology”.

We are very happy to announce that José M. and Francesca can continue their research with us with this felloswhip! Congratulations!
