Job Title: PhD Position Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group (graphene)
Applications are invited for a PhD research position for qualified students who are interested in pursuing experimental physics research on the synthesis and properties of graphene nanostructures using scanning tunneling microscopy. The research activity is part of an ongoing project that consists on studying the optimal reaction path for the preparation of graphene nanoislands of selected shape using different bottom-up strategies (see figure). Some of the results of this study have already been published in Nano Lett., 2012, 12 (9), pp 4431–4436.
The successful applicant will extend the study in the improvement of the quality of graphene nanostructures regarding size and shape selectivity, and study their electronic and magnetic properties as well as their application as building blocks for the synthesis of more complex structures.
The positions are granted for a period of up to 4 years, beginning in December 2012 or later. The successful applicant will be enrolled in the Ph.D program of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. A completed or about to be completed degree in physics or physical chemistry is required. Experience in scanning probe techniques and ultra-high-vacuum environment is welcome.
The Autonomous University campus is situated 25 minutes by metro north from the city of Barcelona. It is a multidisciplinary environment with a large international student community. Further information about the group and university campus can be found at and
