Employer: Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2)
Location: Campus de la UAB, Edifici ICN2 - 08193 Bellaterra (Barcelona), Spain
Job Type: Full time

The Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) is a private foundation created on 11 July 2003 with the objective of becoming a world-renowned centre for nanoscience and nanotechnology research. It is part of CERCA, the network of Research Centres launched by the Catalan Government as a cornerstone of its long-term strategy to foster development of a knowledge-based economy. ICN2's research lines focus on the newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale.

Job description:

We seek a candidate to be employed as a PhD student within the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group. The PhD candidate will be working on comprehensive thermal measurements by thermal SPM-based techniques (quantitative thermal characterization at the nanoscale), known as “Scanning Thermal Microscopy” (SThM), which is based on the exchange of thermal energy between a nanotip and a surface with dedicated nanoprobes. The candidate will also be involved in the fabrication of samples by direct self-assembly of block copolymers and block copolymer nanocomposites The PhD candidate will be working within the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group (http://www.icn.cat/~p2n/). The thesis involves areas ranging from the physics of heat transport, instrumentation and metrology, nanofabrication to material science.

The candidate should have a BSc´s and Master’s degree in Physics, Material Science, Engineering or relevant studies. Excellent communication skills are essential while English language is a prerequisite. This fixed term three-year position is funded through the EU project. Start date will be preferably the 2nd of October 2013, interviews will be held between the 2nd and 6th September.

Pfizer – One Young World Scholarship

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all aspects of people’s lives in a way never seen before. In the face of the pandemic, young people have demonstrated their motivation and capacity to meet local and global health challenges. Whether by caring for patients on the frontlines, providing health awareness & education to their communities or supporting vulnerable populations, young leaders have been essential to the world’s response to this unprecedented crisis. The Pfizer – One Young World Scholarship has been established to recognise the outstanding actions of young people to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on society. 50 scholars will receive digital access to the One Young World Summit 2021 from 22 – 25 July. In addition, scholars will join the One Young World Ambassador community, a network of 12,000+ changemakers in more than 190 countries. This scholarship is intended for young leaders who have demonstrated impact in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and advanc
