The mission of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is to achieve the highest level of scientific and technological excellence in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Its research lines focus on the newly-discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the behavior of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 has been awarded the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence distinction for two consecutive periods (2014-2018 and 2018-2022). ICN2 comprises 19 Research Groups, 7 Technical Development and Support Units and Facilities, and 2 Research Platforms, covering different areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Job Title: Postdoctoral Researcher (Project "CUHL")

Research area or group: "Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems"

Description of Group/Project:

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the physics behind heat transport in systems based on 2D layered materials, using novel experimental techniques based on ultrashort laser pulses, with the aim to control heat flow. Experience with time-domain thermoreflectance and related techniques is highly appreciated. This work is part of ERC Starting Grant project "CUHL". 

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

You will be responsible for a unique optoelectronic ultrafast cryogenic setup aimed at studying ultrafast dynamics and heat transport in different material systems, in particular based on 2D materials.

Education, Experience, Knowledge and Competences required:
