PhD Position Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group (electron scattering)
Location: Barcelona, Spain
Employment Start Date: Flexible/to be discussed

Organization Description:

The Institut Català de Nanotecnologia is a non-profit research institute, created in July 2003 by the Ministry of Universities, Research and Information Society of the Catalan Government and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), who remain its patrons.

The ICN works concurrently in Scientific Research in Nanoscience, primarily via European and national collaborative projects, and in Technology Research, Nanotechnology, in areas of internal expertise and co-development with private industry. Its aim is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in both fields, nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Job Description:

Phenomena such as electron scattering at surface defects will be in the focus of the investigation (see figure). The experimental activity will be based on low-temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM/STS), with possible extensions to angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES) and x-ray magnetic dichroism (XMCD).

The positions are granted for a period of up to 4 years, beginning in December 2012 or later.
The successful applicant will be enrolled in the Ph.D program of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

A completed or about to be completed degree in physics or physical chemistry is required. Experience in scanning probe techniques and ultra-high-vacuum environment is welcome
