PhD position in Delft, QN: two positions in Electron Nanoscopy of Quantum Materials

These two PhD vacancies are supported by the European Research Council through the TESLA project: “Living on the Edge: Tunable Electronics from Edge Structures in 1D Layered Materials”.

The overarching goal of TESLA is to unravel the interplay between structural and electrical edge-induced properties in 1D layered materials by exploiting state-of-the-art electron microscopy and related techniques.  This work will provide input towards novel quantum technologies for developing low-energy-consumption tunable electronics, efficient signal processing, and quantum computation.

Requirements: The PhD candidates hold a master degree in physics, mathematics, materials science, or related topics. Familiarity with transmission electron microscopy tools would be a bonus, but it is not a requirement for applicants.

Applications: Please submit your motivation letter, CV, a summary of your Master thesis, a list with grades of the courses that you took during your studies, and names of two referees as one single PDF file and send it to Please also arrange for these two reference letters to be sent to the same address.

The candidates will be embedded in a young and thriving group at one of the leading research centers in nanoscience and nanotechnology. PhD positions in the Netherlands have associated a full employment contract with generous benefits (paid and sick leave, holiday allowance, and end-of-year bonus).

Successful applicants are expected to start in the first half of 2019.
