Postdoctoral position on electronic structure, magnetism, and quantum transport in graphene nanostructures at DIPC, Donostia-San Sebastian
- 3rd August 2020
Graphene and related materials have emerged as an ideal solution to combine spin localization and diffusion. These atomically thin materials can be fabricated with atomic precision, opening the door to fabrication of designer structures with precise shape, composition, spin arrangement, and interconnected by graphene electrodes for electrostatic or quantum gates.
In relation to our participation in the 4-year research project “Spin Research in Graphene Nanostructures” (SPRING), funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme FET Open (grant agreement No 863098) we are looking for one postdoc:
- to develop and apply electronic structure and quantum transport methods to describe the localization of spin states in open-shell graphene nanostructures and their electrical detection and manipulation by tunnelling electrons,
- to work in close collaboration with the experimental partners of the consortium from CIC nanoGUNE, Technical University of Delft, University of Santiago de Compostela, IBM Research, and University of Oxford.
Candidates should be highly motivated researchers with a strong background in computational physics, good communication skills and English knowledge. Previous experience with ab initio codes and simulations of magnetism and quantum transport is preferred.
The application deadline is 31/08/2020.
Inquiries can be directed to Dr. T. Frederiksen.
