Pre-doctoral Researcher on Information Technology based on Hybrid Organic Interfaces (SINFONIA)

The Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center, CIC nanoGUNE, located in Donostia / San Sebastian, Basque Country (Spain), is currently looking for a



to work on

Information Technology based on Hybrid Organic Interfaces (SINFONIA)


NanoGUNE is a research center devoted to conducting world-class nanoscience research for a competitive growth of the Basque Country. NanoGUNE is a member of the Basque Research and Technology Alliance (BRTA) and is recognized by the Spanish Research Agency as a María de Maeztu Unit of Excellence.


The position is offered in the Nanodevices Group, led by Casanova Fernández, Felix / Hueso Arroyo, Luis ( / The group counts with extensive research facilities for fabrication and characterization of devices and several active research lines spanning from nanofabrication to 2D electronics and spin transport.

The candidate will join a research line focusing on different research themes: Spintronics, Multifunctional devices and Advanced nanofabrication. We are mostly interested in the electronic properties of systems in reduced dimensions. More information can be found at

The research will include the design of patterned molecular nanostructures on magnetic surfaces (including thin-film deposition, ultraviolet and e-beam lithography, etching), the study of the propagation of spin information in these nanostructures (by using electrical transport experiments) and the realisation of proof-of-concept hybrid magnetic circuitries.


The successful candidate will have a Master's in Physics or a simlar field and experience in the following skills:

  • Nanofabrication (e-beam lithography, materials growth and characterization, etching).
  • Electrical transport measurements.
  • Previous knowledge in molecular electronics and/or spintronics.
  • Proficiency in spoken and written English.

We promote teamwork in a diverse and inclusive environment and welcome all kinds of applicants regardless of age, disability, gender, nationality, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

The position is expected to start in 07/01/2023 and for a total length of up to 6 months (07/01/2023 - 31/07/2023) in the Nanodevices Group. The contract will be funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 964396.


Candidates should apply by completing the form below and attaching the following documents:

  1. A complete CV
