PhD in Advanced Hybrid Organic Spintronic Devices
Employer: CIC nanoGUNE
Location: Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain
Employment Start Date: As soon as possible

Organization Description:

The Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center CIC nanoGUNE, created with the mission of conducting world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country and recently recognized as a "María de Maeztu" Excellence Unit (2017-2021), is currently looking for a PREDOCTORAL RESEARCHER  to work onPhD in Advanced Hybrid Organic Spintronic Devices 

This research will be part of QuESTech (Quantum Electronics Science and Technology training), an Innovative Training Network funded by the EU ( 

Job Description:

The Nanodevices group, led by Prof. Luis E. Hueso and Prof. Fèlix Casanova is currently composed of 20 members including senior and junior researchers. The group counts with extensive research facilities for fabrication and characterization of devices. Our group is interested in electronic properties in reduced dimensions, with several active research lines spanning from nanofabrication to 2D and molecular electronics, with a special emphasis on spintronics. More information can be found at

As an example related to this specific position here advertised, a selection of recent work on molecular spintronics/electronics which our team has led in the last two years can be found in the following articles: Science 357, 677 (2017); Nanoscale 9, 10178 (2017); Advanced Materials 19, 1606901 (2017); Nature Materials 16, 507 (2017); Nature Communications 7, 13751 (2016); Advanced Materials 28, 2609 (2016).


The successful candidate will have a completed master degree in Physics, Applied Physics or related discipline and may not have resided more than 12 months in the last 3 years in Spain. Female Early Stage Research (ESR) candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. We aim to recruit at least 40% female ESRs within the QuESTech project.

 Experience on the following techniques will be valued:

  • Thin film growth (sputtering, metal and molecular evaporation, etc.)
  • Characterization techniques (X-ray diffraction, AFM, etc.)
  • Magnetotransport techniques (magnetoresistance, Hall Effect, etc.)
Job Application:

The candidates should apply by completing the form available in the webpage of nanoGUNE (, as well in parallel to the mail project page by sending a mail to [email protected] with all the document required:

a) A complete CV
b) A cover letter and at least two reference letters
