A 3 year post-doctoral position in high resolution electron microscopy is available at the Center for Electron Nanoscopy headed by Andrew Burrows. The project is focused on understanding the early stages of the growth of graphene sheets in order to optimize the process conditions and the fundamentals underlying its unique properties.
The successful candidate should have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in physics or micro/nanotechnology and have extensive experience in working with high-resolution electron microscopy. Priority will be given to applicants with documented experience in aberration correction, sample preparation and graphene. You should furthermore be highly motivated, hardworking and easy to work with, ambitious, and have a high scientific standard. The candidate will work in a part of large European Integrated Project in the FP7, featuring a number of leading academic and industrial partners, and aiming to make large scale graphene and applications thereof a practical reality, as well as in a large national basic research center focused on graphene nanoengineering.
