The mission of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Its research lines focus on the newly-discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the behaviour of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 has been awarded with the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence distinction for three consecutive periods (2014-2018 and 2018-2022 and 2023-2026). ICN2 comprises 20 Research Groups, 7 Technical Development and Support Units and Facilities, and 2 Research Platforms, covering different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Job Title: Postdoctoral researcher for the fabrication of nanoporous graphene field-effect transistors
Research area or group: Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group
Description of Group/Project:
The AMS group focus on the atomic-scale engineering of the quantum properties of novel nanomaterials. Our aim is to understand and control quantum phenomena with atomic precision by chemical and structural manipulation, nanostructuring and interfacing materials that are identified as strategic in the roadmap for new technologies (hybrid metal-organic heterostructures, graphene-based nanostructures, 2D materials, topological insulators...). This position is related to PORESENSE, a project within the Proof of Concept program of the Spanish Research Agency, dedicated to the development of field-effect transistor chemisensor based on nanoporous graphene [Moreno et al., Science. 360, 199-203 (2018)].
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
The candidate will optimize the transfer of nanoporous graphene synthesized on metallic susbtrates to dielectric substrates where the FETs will be fabricated. The quality of transferred layers will be characterized by Raman. In a second step, the candidate will participate in the optimization of the device parameters (electrode material, geometry, dielectric...)
PhD level background in physics, chemistry, nanoscience or engineering
Background in condensed matter, physics, chemistry and materials science at the nanoscale.
Experience as experimental nanoscientist, transfer of 2D materials, fabrication of nanodevices..
Skills in experimental physics and nanoengineering, and in data analysis. Proficiency in English, and demonstrated skills in oral and written communication.
Summary of conditions:
- Full time work (37,5h/week)
- Contract Length: Temporary (14 months)
- Location: Bellaterra (Barcelona)
- Salary will depend on qualifications and demonstrated experience.
- Support to the relocation issues.
- Life Insurance.
Estimated Incorporation date: Last semester of 2023
