The job offer is available for the following event:

A postdoctoral position is available at the Nano-Science Center, University of Copenhagen in collaboration with the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research, Beijing. The work is to be carried out in Beijing.
The position is split between nanoelectronic research and teaching/tutoring at the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research (SDC) in Beijing.
The position is available from 1 January 2016 or soon thereafter.

The research will be part of ongoing collaborative projects between Danish and Chinese re-search groups in the fields of Physics and Chemistry of nanoscale molecular electronics. The scientific aim of the research is to develop new scientific insight that allow better control of the nanoscale and supramolecular organization of electronic materials as well as the fabrication of devices with novel advanced functions.

Combined, the research groups in Denmark and China have access to state-of-the-art facili-ties within molecular electronics, semiconductor nanostructures, scanning probe microscopy, carbon nanostructures, theory, supramolecular chemistry, organic synthesis and more.

Depending on the successful applicant’s background and interests the research work will be situated at either the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology or the Institute of Chemistry in Beijing.

Teaching and tutoring
Since September 2013, the SDC has run a Master’s degree program in Nanoscience and Technology in Beijing. Part of the position will involve teaching and tutoring of the students enrolled in this Master’s program, in collaboration with employees at University of Copen-hagen. The tutoring part will include regular contact with students, regarding scientific as well as practical questions.  This part of the work will take place at the SDC-site in Beijing.

A PhD or equivalent degree in a field relevant to the research project is required. In particu-lar, we are looking for a candidate that can serve as a link between the research groups in Copenhagen and Beijing, and at the same time assist the Master students in Beijing. There-fore, excellent communication and social skills are preferred, as well as the ability to work independently. Knowledge of the Danish education system is required and documented teaching experience will be an advantage. Since the working language is English, excellent written and spoken English is mandatory.
