The Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), jointly with the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), offers one postdoctoral position related to evaluating the electronic transport in organic/inorganic hybrid nanostructures, as described below. Depending on the candidate’s publication record and graduate marks, a postdoc scholarship may be submitted to FAPESP.
About the Project
Organic/inorganic hybrid nanostructures are promising candidates in molecular and organic electronics, with economic interest driven by the sustainable energy industries. Single-molecules, nanowires, carbon-nanotubes, 2D-materials, metal-organic frameworks, among others, have manifested their importance in the comprehension of various fundamental properties of the condensed matter at the nanoscale. The combination of those nano-objects may give rise to essential components of monolithically-integrated circuits featuring thermo-mechanical, optoelectronic, and spin-dependent characteristics.
Our group, involving experimentalists and theorists, master the design, fabrication, and characterization of micro- and nano-devices. We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral fellow to participate in the research involving the development of new organic/inorganic hybrid nano-devices, including the characterization and investigation of hybrid systems’ electronic transport properties nanoscale, at low temperatures and high magnetic fields.
Key project aims
- Participate in the device micro- and nano-fabrication of novel device’s structures;
- Perform electrical characterization as a function of the electric field, temperature, and magnetic field;
- Characterize the structure, morphology, optical and mechanical properties of hybrid nanomaterials as active components in micro-and nano-devices;
- Work in close collaboration with theorists that will be responsible for numerical calculations.
Requirements and how to apply
Requirements include a Ph.D. degree in Physics or Materials Science. Proficiency in English is required. Previous experience in electrical measurements and device characterization is a must. Experience in nano- and micro-fabrication tools and thin-film deposition is also desirable.
Candidates are invited to send a CV (PDF), graduate marks, including a brief description of research experience, by e-mail to carlos.bufon@Lnnano.cnpem.br.
Applications deadline: April 30th, 2021.
