Description of Group/Project:

The AMS group focus on the atomic-scale engineering of the quantum properties of novel nanomaterials. At the nanoscale, the properties of materials are dominated by quantum effects and interfacial phenomena, which impose strong limitations on the control and reproducibility of device performances, but also open up avenues for engineering new physical properties. Our aim is to understand and control quantum phenomena with atomic precision by chemical and structural manipulation, nanostructuring and interfacing materials that are identified as strategic in the roadmap for new technologies (hybrid metal-organic heterostructures, graphene-based 2D materials, topological insulators...).

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

The Senior Scientist will contribute in the overall managing of scientific activities of hte SPM labs. The tasks will also include the supervision of students and postdoctoral researches. The scientific research will focus on the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured graphene, as well as its applications in (opto)electronic and sensing devices. It is expected that the candidate sets up new research lines and collaborations related to the topic.
