Post-doctoral Position in Nanomagnetism Group
The Nanomagnetism Group at the CIC nanoGUNE Consolider Research Center in San Sebastian is currently looking for a
who is interested in working in an inspiring international and interdisciplinary environment in the area of application of nano-magnetism to biology.
The postdoctoral appointment under this project is for two years, with yearly renewals conditioned to performance.
This specific project is funded by a Basque funding agency and it involves close collaboration with an industrial partner.
The research proposed will address the utilization of magnetic nano-structures to manipulate bio-functionalized nano-particles in solution.
The research will require the nano-fabrication of ferromagnetic planar structures (wires), their structural and magnetic characterization together with their integration in microfluidic systems. Devices will be fabricated in the center’s fully-equipped clean room.
Recent work on the above research topics in which our team has participated can be found in the following articles: Adv. Mater. 22, 2706 (2010); J. Appl. Phys. 107, 09B301 (2010); Nanotechnology 20, 385501 (2009); Appl. Phys. Lett. 93, 203502 (2008).
CIC nanoGUNE Consolider, located in San Sebastian, Basque Country (Spain), is a recently founded Research & Development Center with the mission of conducting basic and applied world-class research in nanoscience and nanotechnology, fostering training and education excellence, and supporting the growth of a nanotechnology-based industry.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics, materials science, engineering or chemistry. Experience in one or more of the following experimental techniques would be strongly preferred although it is not strictly a prerequisite: UV optical e-beam lithography, metal e-beam and sputtering evaporation, AFM/MFM, data acquisition, microfluidics.
The candidate should be self-motivated, a team player, and wiling to perform research at the highest level.
Proficiency in spoken and written English is compulsory.
Applicants should send their CV together with the name of at least two potential referees to: Dr. Paolo Vavassori at firstname.lastname@example.org .
