Doctoral Student for studying heat transport in 2D materials

The research group on “Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale systems” has openings for highly motivated PhD Students to work within the ERC project “CUHL – Controlling Ultrafast Heat in Layered materials”.

The goal of this project is to understand and control nanoscale thermal transport in novel material systems based on layered materials. Thermal transport plays a crucial role in applications such as thermal management and thermoelectrics. The group employs state-of-the-art ultrafast optical techniques and fabrication methods using 2D materials.

Education, Experience, Knowledge and Competences required:

Application is open to students that have successfully finished their M.Sc. studies in any of the natural sciences (physics, chemistry, material science, photonics, etc.). Experience with related topics, such as 2D materials, heat transport and ultrafast optics is a plus.

Summary of conditions:

  • Full time work (37,5h/week)
  • Contract Length: 4 years.
  • Salary will depend on qualifications and demonstrated experience.
  • Salary according to the cost of living in Barcelona.
  • Support to the relocation issues.
  • Life Insurance.

Estimated Incorporation date: End of 2018.

How to apply:

All applications must be made via the ICN2 website … and include the following:

  1. A cover letter.
  2. A full CV including contact details.
  3. 2 Reference letters or referee contacts.

Equal opportunities:

ICN2 is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity and inclusion of people with disabilities.
