Postdoc with focus on TEM Research Group Ibáñez

  • Klosterneuburg (Vienna), Austria
  • € 56.000* gross/year
  • Application deadline: flexible start date

Postdoctoral position
A postdoc position is opening in the research group of Professor Maria Ibáñez with a focus on:
Study of temperature-induced transformation in nanostructured materials by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy.

The Ibáñez group develops novel functional nanomaterials using precisely designed nanocrystals as building blocks and investigates their properties as function of their finely tunable nano-features. In this way, we are able to create a new generation of complex materials in which components and functionalities can be defined in a predictable way. Beyond fundamental studies in nanocrystal synthesis, surface chemistry and assembly, the group also aims to provide high-efficiency cost-effective thermoelectric materials.

Your Profile

  • PhD in Material Science, Nanoscience, Chemistry, or Physics
  • Extensive experience in advanced transmission electron microscopy (TEM)
  • Capacity to produce 3D atomic models of the materials studied
  • Experience in in-situ experiments in the TEM will be highly valued, especially with a temperature-controlled TEM holder
  • Experience with semiconductor materials, mainly metal chalcogenides
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • High motivation and a proven ability to conduct independent research, as well as to work effectively as a member of a research team
  • Excellent command of English (working language)

Application documents: motivation letter, CV, and the name of three referees
