MdM PhD position 1 - Opto-electronic 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


In this project, multiple functionalization of material surfaces by means of controlled growth of quantum dots is planned. The resulting composite will be optimized towards applications in opto-electronic applications or optical/magneto-optical sensing, depending on the most promising material combination upon initial results.

The research within this project will be done in the Nanomaterials group with supervision of Prof. Mato Knez, in close collaboration with the Nanomagnetism and Electron Microscopy groups. 

The successful candidate must have a Master (or equivalent) degree and a solid background in chemistry, materials science or physics. Expertise in coating technologies (e.g. atomic layer deposition or chemical vapor deposition) or opto-electronic materials design will be considered beneficial. 

We offer an international and competitive environment, state-of-the-art equipment, and the possibility of performing research at the highest level. The PhD students will be enrolled at the University of the Basque Country Doctorate Program. The positions are available immediately. In the first instance, the contracts 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 by 1 June 2018, attaching a cover letter, a complete CV, academic qualifications and at least one reference letter grouped in a single PDF file.



* Applications that do not follow the instructions indicated above will not be considered further.

* The deadline for applications is 1st June 2018 

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