Postdoc in Tuning Graphene´s Electronic Properties (1.0 FTE)

Graphene is known to possess countless extraordinary properties. However, despite the fact that graphene is considered a miracle material, there are also properties which are not inherently present in graphene: these being an electronic bandgap and magnetic properties.

Functieomschrijving

Graphene is known to possess countless extraordinary properties. However, despite the fact that graphene is considered a miracle material, there are also properties which are not inherently present in graphene: these being an electronic bandgap and magnetic properties.
The aim of the present postdoc position is to modify graphene´s properties by adsorbing specially synthesized molecules on its upper surface, in combination with selecting the substrate which is in contact with its lower surface. In particular the fabrication of metal-organic coordination structures on graphene enables the periodic arrangement of magnetic atoms. These types of structures should be tested for inducing magnetism into graphene.
The necessary characterizations regarding structural, electronic and magnetic properties will be carried out with scanning probe microscopy/spectroscopy, photoelectron spectroscopy and transport measurements.

Functie-eisen

We are looking for a motivated candidate with:

- a PhD, obtained no longer than 4 years ago, in Physics, Material Sciences or Physical Chemistry
- experience in at least one of the following areas: scanning probe microscopy, photoemission spectroscopy or transport measurements
- a good command of English (oral and written), enthusiasm and a team player
- a passion for science
- excellent communication skills
- the ability to write scientific papers and deliver presentations.

Conditions

We offer you in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities:
- a salary dependent on qualifications and work experience of € 3,255 gross per month up to a maximum of € 4,274 gross per month (salary scale 10 Dutch Universities) for a full-time position
- a holiday allowance of 8% gross annual income
- an 8.3% end of the year bonus
- a personal budget of € 1,000 per year is dedicated for additional training and career activities.

The successful candidate will first be offered a temporary position of one year with the option of renewal for another year. Prolongation of the contract is contingent on sufficient progress in the first year. UFO-profile Researcher applies.

We provide career services for partners of new faculty members moving to Groningen.

We adopted an active policy to increase the number of female scientists across all disciplines of the University. Therefore, female candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

How to apply
You may apply for this position before until 13 June 11.59pm / before 14 June 2019 Dutch local time (CEST) by means of the application form (click on "Apply" below on the advertisement on the university’s website).

Do you meet our qualification criteria? If yes, your application should include:
- cover letter outlining motivation, qualifications, experience, and career goals
- curriculum vitae
- contact details of 3 people who can provide information on your suitability for the position (thesis supervisors etc.)
- in case the PhD has not yet been obtained, proof of thesis submission or an indication of when the thesis is expected to be submitted.

The preferred starting date is September 2019. Interviews will be held as soon as possible.

We are an equal opportunity employer that values diversity. We have adopted an active policy to increase the number of female scientists across all disciplines of the university. Therefore, women are encouraged to apply.
