Vacancies

Two PhD positions in Electron Nanoscopy of Quantum Materials

These two PhD vacancies are supported by the European Research Council through the TESLA project: “Living on the Edge: Tunable Electronics from Edge Structures in 1D Layered Materials”.

The overarching goal of TESLA is to unravel the interplay between structural and electrical edge-induced properties in 1D layered materials by exploiting state-of-the-art electron microscopy and related techniques.  This work will provide input towards novel quantum technologies for developing low-energy-consumption tunable electronics, efficient signal processing, and quantum computation.

Requirements: The PhD candidates hold a master degree in physics, mathematics, materials science, or related topics. Familiarity with transmission electron microscopy tools would be a bonus, but it is not a requirement for applicants.

Applications: Please submit your motivation letter, CV, a summary of your Master thesis, a list with grades of the courses that you took during your studies, and names of two referees as one single PDF file and send it to s.conesaboj@tudelft.nl. Please also arrange for these two reference letters to be sent to the same address.

The candidates will be embedded in a young and thriving group at one of the leading research centers in nanoscience and nanotechnology. PhD positions in the Netherlands have associated a full employment contract with generous benefits (paid and sick leave, holiday allowance, and end-of-year bonus).

Successful applicants are expected to start in the first half of 2019.

Postdoctoral research positions

A) One postdoctoral research vacancy supported by the ERC

We are seeking a highly skilled and motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques to investigate the atomic structure and electrical properties of nanostructured materials built upon layered materials.

The successful candidate will undertake research in advanced TEM-based techniques, such as atomic resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy HR(S)TEM and electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS). She/he will operate a new state-of-the-art JEOL microscope equipped with a monochromator and Cs-corrector.

Requirements: The candidates should hold a PhD degree in physics, materials science, or related topics. Familiarity with TEM techniques such as HR(S)TEM and EELS is required.

Applications: Please submit your motivation letter, CV as one single PDF file and send it to s.conesaboj@tudelft.nl. Please also arrange for two reference letters to be sent to the same address.

This postdoctoral research position is supported by the European Research Council through the TESLA Starting Grant project. The employment contract of the successful candidate will be on a first instance of two years, with the possibility of an extension subject to available funding.

There is flexibility concerning the starting date of the position,  with preference to those candidates with availability to start in early 2019.

If you would like to request more information about these positions, please drop me an email at s.conesaboj@tudelft.nl
