    PhD Student in Advanced Surface Electromechanics
    Announcement date: 21 June 2017

    [show details]

    Description

    The research lead by Dra. Neus Domingo at the Advanced AFM Laboratory of the Institut Català de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) in Barcelona has become a reference in Europe for the nanoscale characterization of piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials. Research lines mainly concern the surface electric and electromechanical properties at the nanoscale; current topics of interest include but are not limited to adsorbates on ferroelectric surfaces, surface electromechanical characterization, domain wall nanoelectronics, oxide interface effects or nano-confined phase transitions.

    All applications must be made via the ICN2 website and include the following:

    1.              A cover letter.

    2.              A full CV including contact details.

    3.              2 Reference letters or referee contacts.

    Deadline for applications: July, 15.

    Requirements

    We seek strongly motivated young researchers willing to achieve a phD with high level of excellence. PhD students of our research group are prepared to lead their own research lines from the experimental base to the final publication of the results.

    Related to the offered position, the applicant should ideally have a background on physics, electronic engineering or materials science, oriented to nanoscience and nanotechnology areas.

    The main requirement is the willingness and skill to get involved in the setting up of the experimental facilities: the researcher will have the chance to use cryogenic systems and all types of instrumentation for electrical characterization. Our group focuses on original research, so we place a strong premium on fresh thinking; the ideal applicant should therefore be an independent thinker, enthusiastic about learning and doing good research, as well as a friendly communicator in English, both in writing and in oral presentations. For the experimental work, it is also essential a well-organized and methodological candidate. Good inter-personal skills are essential since the group is committed with excellent team spirit environment.
