ICMAB Open Positions

Postdoc Offer at the ICMAB FunNanoSurf group on graphene-based devices

FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group based at the ICMAB (Spain) interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices with the goal of developing functional molecular-based platforms for electronic and/or sensing applications. We are looking now for a postdoctoral fellow to join in our team to work on hybrid graphene-based devices. Deadline for application: applications will be considered as they are received until September 2019.

Apr 12, 2019

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create hybrid graphene-based three-terminal nanodevices. The postdoctoral fellow will oversee the design, fabrication and characterization of graphene-based electrodes separated by a nano-gap (<2 nm), as well as the analysis and treatment of the experimental data. Electronic transport measurements of three-terminal nanodevices will be performed in a probe station under various environmental conditions to assess their efficiency and robustness as electronic sensors.

The devices will be prepared using molecular-based materials as active components, an area in which the group has extensive experience. A key aspect of the project is the functionalization of graphene electrodes via e.g. covalent and supramolecular attachment. We thus seek a candidate with excellent nanofabrication skills, who ideally has a background in graphene nanotechnologies and who can drive the research at the interface between chemistry and physics.

The postdoctoral fellow will join a lab that actively collaborates with other international groups, and hence research stays at other institutions will be part of the project.

This position offers a unique opportunity to conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research and the postdoctoral fellow is expected to publish her/his results in leading journals. The postdoctoral position is for up to 3 years.


For this position, we are looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in experimental physics and nanofabrication. Applicants should have the following qualifications:

  • PhD in experimental physics or similar.
  • Expertise in electronic transport measurements.
  • Knowledge of graphene nanodevice fabrication
  • Data analysis and programming skills
  • Good communication and organizational skills
  • Strong publication record
  • Ability to work independently as well as with interdisciplinary teams
  • Fluent in English

Applicants are invited to submit a cover letter and CV, including the contact information (name, institution, phone number, and e-mail address) of 3 referees.

The project will start in September 2019 but we encourage candidates to apply early; applications will be considered as they are received.
