Project no. 310250
Project Acronym: UNION
Project title: Ultra-versatile Nanoparticle Integration into Organized Nanoclusters (Project no: 310250, NMP.2012.1.4-2)
Host Institution: Catalonia Institute for Energy Research - IREC
Area: Advanced Materials for Energy
Group: Functional Nanomaterials
Group Leader: Dr. Andreu Cabot
Call for Applications:Pre-docPosition
The Functional Nanomaterials Group of the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research - IREC announces a 3-year PhD Position available for a highly motivated candidate to work in the FP7 UNION Project.
The UNION project will develop nanoparticle assembly techniques, and assembly monitoring technologies to prepare novel hierarchically-ordered nanoparticles clusters (NPs). In particular, the project will investigate how emergent properties of the assemblies are determined by the architecture of the assembly, the extent of order, and the properties of the component NPs.
This will enable tuning of the primary NP properties and the assembly processes to develop significant breakthroughs in nano-devices and next generation complex nanotechnology products.
The candidate will carry out a multidisciplinary activity with the final aim to produce nanocomposites from the bottom-up assembly of colloidal nanoparticles and test their functionality.
The candidate must have a bachelor degree in Chemistry, Physics, Material Science or equivalent. Previous experience in the preparation, assembly, manipulation, characterization and use of colloidal nanoparticles will be very valuable for the position.
-CV and a motivation letter have to be sent to Dr. Andreu Cabot (firstname.lastname@example.org
-Deadline for applications: April 30th 2013, 12:00 AM (Spanish local time)
-Incorporation: 15th May 2013
-Duration of the contract: 36 months
-Gross salary: 17.000,00€
The recruitment process will follow the guidelines of the European Charter of Researchers.
