Offer Description

A tender is hereby opened for the award of one (1)Research Grant (RG)in the scope of R&D project “Material’s Research with Radioactive Isotopes and Nuclear Techniques at ISOLDE-CERN 2021” reference CERN/FIS-TEC/0003/2021, from CICECO – Aveiro Institute of Materials under the following conditions:

1. Scientific Area: Physics

2. Funding Source

a) Foundation for Science and Technology, I.P./MCTES, through national funds (PIDDAC)

3. Admission Requirements:

1) Students enrolled in in master or integrated master, with a Bachelor degree in the scientific area of Physics, Physics

Engineering, or similar. The candidate should be interested in studying the physical properties of materials, particularly optical. Preference will be given to candidates with previous experience in this area. The candidate should have communication skills in Portuguese and English.

For this job, it is desirable that the candidate has knowledge of solid-state physics, materials and computational physics. Previous experience in these areas, and particularly in studies of optical properties, will be valued. The candidate will be working in a broad research group with experience in experimental and theoretical techniques in materials characterization, so good communication skills are required.

 

The proof of enrolment must be made available until the contract is awarded, and the candidate may attach a declaration of honor to confirm that they meet the requirements for enrolment in an integrated master's degree, master's or doctoral program or in a course that does not confer an academic degree.

5. Work plan: .

The work plan fits in the following project task:

T7 - MATERIALS OPTICAL CHARACTERIZATION

The particular objectives to be achieved by the grant holder will be as follows:

The work will mainly consist of:

- Carrying out the characterization of UV/Vis absorption, photoluminescence (PL), excitation photoluminescence (PLE) and Raman spectroscopy of samples implanted with stable isotopes in diamond, in complementarity with experiments carried out with radioactive isotopes, as well as pure samples. The experimental work will be carried out at the University of Aveiro, mainly in the laboratories of the Institute of Nanostructures, Nanomodelling and Nanofabrication (i3N) of the Physics Department.

Based on the above tasks and in collaboration with the team, the candidate will be expected to write reports, communications and scientific articles in English for publication in international journals.
