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: Research Technician/Lab Engineer
Research area or group: Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group
Description of Group/Project:
The Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices (AEMD) 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 (MoS2). 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 MoS2 materials by CVD and MOCVD, surface functionalisation, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (neural implants and biomedical technologies, biosensors, flexible electronics).
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
The successful candidate will give support to the research team in the following topics:
- growth and deposition of graphene
- transfer of graphene
- device fabrication.
The tasks will also involve the maintenance of the graphene reactor as well as the implementation of upgrades, the optimisation of the graphene transfer process, and the support to the fabrication of graphene-based devices.
The research activity of the candidate will be part of the BrainGraph project (PLEC2022-009232) financiado por MCIN/AEI /10.13039/501100011033 y por la Unión Europea NextGenerationEU/ PRTR
- Education: Master in Materials Science, Nanotechnology, Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or equivalent degrees
- Knowledge and Professional Experience:
Experience in CVD growth of graphene and other 2D materials
Experience with micro/nanofabrication
Experience with neural interface technologies will be valued
Fluent English both spoken and written
Summary of conditions:
- Full time work (37,5h/week)
- Contract Length: Temporary (until November 2025)
- Location: Bellaterra (Barcelona)
- Salary will depend on qualifications and demonstrated experience.
- Support to the relocation issues.
- Life Insurance.
Estimated Incorporation date: October 2023
