PhD position theoretical studies of heating and cooling in molecular transport junctions
Nano-structured junctions with molecules bound between electrodes present interesting systems for molecular electronic and thermoelectric devices. These projects will investigate inelastic electron transport and heat transport in conducting junctions with a particular focus on strategies for controlling these processes chemically.
It is necessary to have experience in computational chemistry or physics, particularly experience in electron transfer/transport. Good communication skills (written and oral) in English are required.
A MSc or equivalent degree
PhD employment will be for a period of 3 years.
Terms of employment
