Job Title: PhD studentship on water freezing at the nanoscale
Description
Job Title: 1 PhD studentship on water freezing at the nanoscale
Employer: Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2)
Location: Campus de la UAB, 08193 Bellaterra (Barcelona), Spain
Job Type: Full-time
 
The Institut Català de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia (http://www.icn.cat) is a non-profit research institute, jointly funded by Catalan Government, the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), and the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC). ICN’s focus is excellence in research on nanoscience and nanotechnology. ICN2 has just moved to a new building equipped with state of the art facilities.
 
The successful candidate will join the Water on Surfaces research line led by Dr. Albert Verdaguer at the Force Probe microscopy and Surface Nanoengineering (FPM&SN)) group led by Dr. Jordi Fraxedas. The group specializes on surface nanoenginering to control interaction of molecules with surfaces and the development of atomic force microscopy techniques. We currently have research projects on controlling water freezing at the nanoscale, hydrophobic self assembled monolayer coatings, development of Atomic Force Microscopy dynamic techniques and mechanical properties of materials at the nanoscale.
 
Job description:
 
The candidate will work in the area of molecular structure of water at interfaces and wetting at the nanometer scale. The aim of the project is to design and create coatings using nanotechnology that can control water freezing on surfaces. The PhD students will learn about the physics and chemistry of molecular adsorption processes, surface science, water freezing, self-assembled monolayers and atomic force microscopy. His/her tasks will include experiment design, monomolecular coatings fabrication and characterization, data analysis, and dissemination of results in international scientific journals and conferences.
 
Applicants should have completed a degree in Physics or Chemistry with an academic grade point average of 2.5 or higher, and we will value positively a Master’s degree in any complementary discipline such as Materials Science, Biophysics, or Nanotechnology. The successful candidate must have an enquiring mind, enjoy problem-solving and be able to think independently while at the same time working in a group --a confident and outgoing personality will help. A good command of English, both in writing and in oral presentations, is essential.
 
This contract is for one year extensible up to a maximum of 4 years starting in autumn 2013.
 
Closing date for application:
The application period is open until the suitable candidates are found, but we expect to make the choice before the summer.
