PhD vacancies at 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 s.conesaboj@tudelft.nl. 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.

If you would like to request more information about these positions, please have a look at my lab's website and drop me an email at s.conesaboj@tudelft.nl
