MdM Posdoc 2. CIC09 Optical excitations in nanoscale materials

The Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center CIC nanoGUNE, created with the mission of conducting world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country and recently recognized as a "María de Maeztu" Excellence Unit (2017-2021), is currently looking for a


to work on


The research project aims at determining mechanisms for light scattering and optical excitations in layered materials and molecular nanostructures with nanometer resolution. The interaction between light and matter can be brought to the nanoscale by the use of metallic nanoantennas, whereas atomic resolution is achieved by low-temperature probe microscopy. 

The selected candidate will lead the integration of optical and probe spectroscopies into a combined method to map excitons and their dynamics in well-defined systems.

The candidate should have a PhD in Physics or related fields, and experience in scanning probe microscopy and optical spectroscopy methods.

The project will be performed in the Nanoimaging group of Prof. Nacho Pascual, in collaboration with the Nanooptics group of Prof. Rainer Hillenbrand.

We offer an international and competitive environment, state-of-the-art equipment, and the possibility of performing research at the highest level. The position is available immediately and for a total length of up to three years. The contract will be financed by grant MDM-2016-0618 of the "María de Maeztu" 2016 call of the Spanish National Research Agency.

The candidates should apply by completing the form below, attaching: 

a) A complete CV

b) A cover letter and at least two reference letters grouped in a single PDF file.

The deadline for applications has been extended to 30 September 2017.


* NanoGUNE values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. 

* Applicants should stick to the following instructions for submitting their applications.

* Please note that due to the large number of submissions expected, we cannot provide individual feedback.
