Post-doctoral position available in experimental Nanoelectronics/-spintronics


Employer:   School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin

Website:     http://people.tcd.ie/krsticv

Location:    Dublin, Republic of Ireland

Position description

The group is seeking a well-qualified and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with interest in working on temperature and magnetic-field dependent electrical and spin transport in nanodevices based on single and ensembles of nano-objects. The overall goal is to explore fundamental transport properties of nano-device structures focusing on contact-interfaces, including spin- and charge-carrier injection, and device-layout in view of nano-device-design strategies and benchmarking for applications.  

The post-doctoral fellowship projects include experiments on semiconductor and metal nanowires (germanium, silicon, silver, copper), graphene, and organic thin films including work on the (continued) development of a high-frequency contact-less conductivity measurement technique.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in experimental physics or solid-state materials science and need a solid knowledge in some of the following research fields: mesoscopic physics/nano-materials physics and experiments, nano-device fabrication, electrical measurements of nano-device structures, low-temperature experiments, magnetic-field experiments, and data acquisition.

 

The position comprises the co-supervision of PhD students, that is, the candidate is expected to work together with and support PhD students. Possibilities for teaching opportunities are principally possible if desired by the post-doctoral fellow.

Starting date:  in 2011.

Duration: 2 to 3 years.

 

The School of Physics at the Trinity College Dublin, offers a highly stimulating and vibrant environment with

internationally recognized research groups in both experimental and theoretical solid-state and materials physics.

Our group is located in the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN, http://www.crann.tcd.ie) at the Trinity College Dublin and part of the Integrated Nanoscience Platform for Ireland (INSPIRE).

 

Interested applicants, please, send an e-mail with a complete curriculum vitae, as well as names and contact details of referees to krsticv@tcd.ie.
