The applicant will develop novel routes to unravel experimentally the thermoelectric properties on graphene-based structures and topological insulators. The applicant will perform the fabrication of devices in a clean room enivromnment as well as the magnetotransport measurements in the mK regime and in the GHz to THz range. Please contact Dr. Mario Amado (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Enrique Diez (email@example.com) for further details
1. Application must be received before the internal deadline: November 28th 2018.
2. The applicant must hold a Masters Degree in Physics, or Materials Science.
3. The applicant should preferably be a citizen of a EEAS/EU country or possess a visa/ permit to work in Spain.
4. Although not mandatory, experience in Nanotechnology research on graphene and in a clean-room environment will be valued. In particular, experience in some of these techniques will be appreciated: low-temperature characterization, Micro Raman spectroscopy, RIE/ICP, electron beam lithography and electron beam deposition
Duration of the contract is 4 years or 3+1 Postdoctoral Research Associate if applicable
commencing on or about mid-2019.
