Post-doctoral position “Nanoscale Patterning of Graphene” open in Center for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG)

Center for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG) is a recently established centre of excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (Danske Grundforskningsfond). The goal of the center is to use advanced fabrication techniques to nanopattern graphene so that it acquires novel physical properties, which in turn can be used as a platform for basic science studies, as well as for devices with new functionalities. The research carried out at CNG is cross-disciplinary and it involves theoretical and experimental research from many branches of physical, chemical and engineering sciences. CNG is a collaboration between three institutes at Technical University of Denmark (DTU): Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology, Department of Photonics, and Department of Physics, and the Faculty of Sciences at Aalborg University. CNG benefits strongly from the access to state-of-the-art experimental facilities of Danchip (fabrication) and DTU CEN (electron microscopy) located on DTU campus, as well as the advanced computational facilities at DTU. The PhD students and post-docs will be part of a highly cross-disciplinary research team. We are therefore looking for people with an interest in team-oriented work. For information on the overall goals of CNG you are welcome to contact Center Leader, Professor Antti-Pekka Jauho, phone.: (+45) 4525 6335, or email: Antti-Pekka.Jauho@nanotech.dtu.dk. A 2 year post-doctoral researcher position is available in the Nanointegration group headed by Peter Bøggild, DTU Nanotech. The project is focused on developing approaches to spatially modulate graphene on the nanometer scale, involving in particular (1) high density 1D and 2D patterning of graphene through block copolymer and nanocolloidal lithography, (2) exploration of alternative modulation strategies such as patterned gate and patterned substrates, (3) integration with silicon chip technology including electron transparent in situ TEM chips, (4) exploration of the structural, electrical, thermoelectric and mechanical properties in collaboration with other team members. The Nanointegration group at DTU Nanotech is a multidisciplinary research team focusing on integration of nanomaterials (graphene, carbon nanotubes, organic/inorganic nanowires) with silicon microsystems, in situ TEM, as well as advanced nanofabrication/ nanostructuring technology and metrology tools. Qualifications The successful candidate has a PhD degree (or equivalent) in physics or micro/nanotechnology and has extensive experience in working with micro- and nanofabrication in a clean-room. Priority will be given to applicants with documented experience in clean-room based device fabrication and electrical characterisation. The candidate should furthermore be highly motivated, hard working and easy to work with, ambitious, and have a high scientific standard. Excellent communication and language skills as well as a team-oriented attitude are requested, as well as good teaching and supervision skills. Salary and terms of employment The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union. The period of employment is 2 years. Further information Further information may be obtained from Assoc. Prof. Peter Bøggild, peter.boggild@nanotech.dtu.dk. Application procedure We must have your online application by 1 March 2012. Apply online at http://www.dtu.dk/career. Please open the link “apply for this job online (søg stillingen online)” in the grey bar below and fill in the online application form and attach • Application • CV • Max 3 letters of reference • A short statement of research interest and plans. All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
