MdM PhD position 3 - Extreme nanofabrication for spintronic and plasmonic devices

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


Extreme nanofabrication is a key technique for reaching novel functionalities in electronic and optic devices at the nanoscale. For instance, a plethora of unforeseen effects have been observed in layered materials when their dimensions are scaled down to the monolayer limit. In this project, we aim to explore challenging approaches to fabricate nanodevices for spintronic and plasmonic applications.

The research will be co-lead by Prof. Luis E. Hueso of the Nanodevices group and Prof. Rainer Hillenbrand of the Nanooptics group.

The selected candidate should have a Master (or equivalent) degree in Physics, Materials Science or Engineering, and will be responsible for the design and preparation of nanostructures by electron-beam lithography in combination with metals deposition and 2D materials exfoliation and stamping in controlled atmosphere.

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, 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.
