Postdoctoral Researcher (Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale systems)

Back

Description of Group/Project:
The research group on "Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems" has openings for highly motivated Postdocs 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.

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

Develop time-resolved optical and optoelectronic setups, perform measurements on different systems based on 1D and 2D materials, and interpret the results.

Education, Experience, Knowledge and Competences required:
· Education
PhD in Applied Physics or related disciplines.
· Professional Experience
Experience with optical and optoelectronic setups and 1D and 2D material systems.
· Competences
Excellent communication skills, ability to work with highly qualified professionals with international backgrounds, taking responsibilities.


Summary of conditions:
· Full time work (37,5h/week)
· Contract Length: 2 years.
· Salary will depend on qualifications and demonstrated experience.
· Support to the relocation issues.
