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: Predoctoral researcher
Research area or group: Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group
Description of Group/Project:
Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group focuses on the material sciences and technology aspects of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene as well as other 2D materials. The group also works towards the development of technological applications based on these materials such as electronics, bioelectronics and biosensing, neural interfaces, etc.
The activities cut across different scientific aspects, from the fundamentals (the physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials by CVD, surface functionalisation, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
The researcher's main role will be the development of large scale graphene by CVD techniques and their flexible technology. The researcher will be in charge of growing graphene on rigid substrates and characterize it, additionally to the development of novel transfer and protection strategies to keep the materials quality along the fabrication process. Apart from the structural characterization, the researcher will investigate the performance of graphene-based materials and technology operating in different working conditions. Specifically, the researcher will focus on (1) graphene growth on rigid substrates, (2) transfer and technology development, (3) graphene surface modification.
- Education: Master in Materials Science, Nanotechnology, or equivalent degrees
- Knowledge andProfessional Experience:
Experience in 2D materials synthesis by CVD method and surface functionalization
Experience with micro/nanofabrication
Experience with characterization tools (Raman, CQMB, AFM, etc.) and electrical characterization
Experience in programming (LabView, Python, C++, Matlab)
Fluent English both spoken and written
- Personal Competences: Teamwork skills
Summary of conditions:
- Full time work (37,5h/week)
- Contract Length: Temporary (máx.4 years)
- Location: Bellaterra (Barcelona)
- Salary will depend on qualifications and demonstrated experience.
- Support to the relocation issues.
- Life Insurance.
Estimated Incorporation date: As soon as possible.
