NOVASPEC PhD student

PhD position on Characterization by IR s-SNOM and nano-FTIR spectroscopy

The Nanooptics group at the CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain) is looking for a candidates to fill a predoctoral researcher position (PhD student) to work on infrared nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy based on scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) and nanoscale Fourier transform infrared (nano-FTIR) spectroscopy.

The project aim to demonstrate their capabilities and develop methods for the characterization of complex samples ranging from 2D materials or polymeric nanocomposites, relevant for different applications. This project constitutes an excellent opportunity for a PhD student to perform research in the emerging field of infrared nanoanalysis, in a group lead by one of the pioneers of IR s-SNOM and nano-FTIR spectroscopy, and in strong collaboration with industry and with neighboring research and university institutes around the Campus of Gipuzkoa (University of the Basque Country).


    ▪    Degree and Master in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Chemistry or Materials Sciences/Engineering (completed before the contract starting date).

    ▪    Experience in Scanning Probe Microscopies and/or knowledge in optics, particularly near-field and nanooptics, would be appreciated.

    ▪    Proficiency in spoken and written English is compulsory.

    ▪    Computer literacy, analytical skills and effective team working.

How to apply:

Applicants should fill the form below and attach their CV together a transcript of their degree certificate and at least two reference letters. before 31/08/2019.
