A PhD position in Molecular Electronics is available from November 1, 2015 or shortly thereafter in the NanoChemistry Section, Department of Chemistry and Nano-Science Center, University of Copenhagen. The aim of the project is to develop solid-state devices for the study of charge transport in molecules. The project funded by the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research.
The Nano-Science Center at the University of Copenhagen brings together researchers from the areas of chemistry, physics, biotechnology and medicine in a strong cross-disciplinary environment. Combined with close ties to the international research community and cooperation with private companies, these features make the Center a strong base for science of international excellence.
The research within the Molecular Electronics group aims to develop new scientific insight that allow better control of the nanoscale supramolecular organization of electronic materials as well as the fabrication of devices with novel advanced functions. The work is highly interdisciplinary and includes aspects of nanoscale spectroscopy, chemical self-assembly and device fabrication.
For the current PhD position, we are looking for a talented candidate with a background in chemistry, physics or nanoscience, preferably with experience in device fabrication, supramolecular chemistry and/or scanning-probe techniques.
The project will include up to 12 months stay at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in China.
The candidate must have strong background in chemistry, nanoscience or physics at the master’s level.
The successful applicant will enrol as a Ph.D. student at the University of Copenhagen. The Ph.D. program, in addition to the project work, comprises participation in courses and some activity as teaching assistant.
Terms of employment
The position is for a three-year period and expected to lead to a Ph.D. degree at the University of Copenhagen.
Salary, pension and terms of employment are in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Academics Central organization. The salary depends on seniority, as agreed between the Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations.
The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the surrounding society and encourage all qualified applicants regardless of personal background to apply for the position.
