Postdoctoral Researcher - Organic Spintronic/electronic devices, 2D ink
Employer: CIC nanoGUNE
Website: http://WWW.NANOGUNE.EU
Employment Start Date: Flexible/to be discussed

Organization Description:

NanoGUNE is a research center with the mission of performing world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country.

Job Description:

The research topics encompass the study of the electron and spin transport properties of novel molecules as well as the merge of optical and spin properties in single devices. The research will require the fabrication of organic-based devices (by both UHV evaporation and chemical methods), together with their (low temperature) electrical characterization. The position is funded by the EU FET-Open project 2D-INK The Nanodevices group, led by Luis E. Hueso, is currently composed of 14 members including senior and junior researchers. The group counts with extensive research facilities for fabrication and characterization of devices and several active research lines spanning from nanofabrication to 2D electronics and spin transport.

As an example related to this specific position here advertised, a selection of recent work on organic electronics and spintronics in which our team has participated can be found in the following articles: Advanced Materials 28, 2609 (2016); Nanoscale 7, 15442 (2015); Chemical Communications 51, 10754 (2015); Advanced Functional Materials 25, 2972 (2015); AdvancedElectronic Materials 1, 1500065 (2015); Advanced Materials 26, 7561 (2014); Nature Communications 5, 4161 (2014); Applied Physics Letters 105, 083302 (2014); Nature Communications 4, 2794 (2013); Nanotechnology 24, 475201 (2013); Applied Physics Letters 101, 102404 (2012); Advanced Materials 23, 1609 (2011); Nature Physics 6, 615 (2010); Nature Materials 8, 707 (2009); Physical Review B 78, 115203 (2008); Advanced Materials 19, 2639 (2007).


Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in physics, materials science or chemistry. Experience in one or more of the following experimental techniques would be strongly preferred: organic spintronic devices, organic transistors, lithography, metal and organic evaporation, AFM, low-temperature electrical transport, photocurrent and photovoltaic measurements. The candidate should have a strong track record in publications at the highest level. In addition, he/she should be self-motivated and a team player willing to coordinate the research in a particular topic. Proficiency in spoken and written English is compulsory.

Job Application:

Applicants should send their CV together with a cover letter explaining his/her interest in the position and at least two reference letters to: Dr. Luis E. Hueso at The position is available immediately and it will remain open until a successful candidate is appointed
