Post-doctoral Researchers

Postdoctoral Researcher in Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group


Research area or group: Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices

Description of Group/Project:

Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group focuses on the material sciences and technology aspects of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene as well as other 2D materials (MoS2). The group also works towards the development of technological applications based on these materials such as electronics, bioelectronics and biosensing, neural interfaces, etc.

The activities cut across different scientific aspects, from the fundamentals (the physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials by CVD, surface functionalisation, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

The successful candidate will be mostly involved in activities related to the growth, characterization and transfer of 2D materials and in the design, fabrication and assessment of several technologies, mainly for sensing and biosensing applications. The candidate will be involved in different tasks covering from material science to device implementation according with the needs of the group.

The research activity of the candidate will be framed in some ongoing projects (WASP and NANOSMART) and others that may come.
