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:
PhD in Applied Physics or related disciplines.
· Professional Experience
Experience with optical and optoelectronic setups and 1D and 2D material systems.
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.
· Life Insurance.
