Nanotechnology group in the Department of Physics of the University of Salamanca (USAL) is seeking applicants for a Ph.D. research fellowhsip. Our current work has a major emphasis on developing novel routes towards fully 2-dimensional-based systems on applied condensed matter. We employ several experimental methodologies (i.e. low-temperature magnetotransport, THz emission and detection and non-linear optics) with a common stem in clean-room-based work and (quasi) two-dimensional materials.

Please contact Dr. Enrique Diez ( for further details.

  1. Application must be received before the internal deadline: September 10th


  1. The applicant must hold a Masters Degree in Physics or Materials
  1. The applicant should preferably be a citizen of a EEAS/EU country or possess a visa/ permit to work in


  1. Although not mandatory, experience  in  Nanotechnology  research  on  two dimensional materials 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 ofthe contract is up to 4 years or 3+1 Postdoctoral Research Associate if applicable commencing on or about early-2020.


Salary and Training

The  predoctoral  fellowship  will  be  funded  with   a maximum     gross salary of 16200 € per annum (yrs 1 & 2) and 18500 € per annum (yrs 3 & 4) while the PDRA 4th year will received a maximum gross salary of 23000 €

In addition, selected candidates will receive internal funds to develop their own research tasks including travel allowance for meetings and conferences. Furthermore, candidates will have access to a wide offer of training activities in nanotechnolgy, semiconductor characterization and low-temperatures technologies such as seminars, specific training sessions, etc. They will be provided with the required conditions to develop their research projects with autonomy and within a stimulating environment.
The Nanotechnology group ( will provide all the facilities and experience that will be used by the researcher in the same conditions than any  of the members of the permanent staff.
