The Nanooptics group at the CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain) is looking for an early stage researcher (predoc) to adapt scattering-type scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM) and nanoscale Fourier transform infrared (nano-FTIR) spectroscopy for operation in liquid media.

The contract will be within the framework of the SPM2.0 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (721874), which aims at training a whole generation of researchers in the most advanced SPM techniques able to address the challenge of sub-surface, high speed and composition sensitive imaging of materials with sub-10 nm resolution.

The successful candidate will develop research involving:

- Development and implementation of instrumentation and methods for s-SNOM and nano-FTIR in liquids.

- Development of optimized near-field probes with focused ion beam milling (FIB).

- Demonstration experiments.

Requirements:

Degree and Master in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Chemistry or Materials Sciences/Engineering (completed before the contract staring date).

Multidisciplinary qualifications (Physics/Chemistry, Physics/Materials Sciences, etc.).

Practical experience with Scanning Probe Microscopies, particularly s-SNOM

Good knowledge in optics, particularly near-field and nanooptics.

Proficiency in spoken and written English is compulsory.

Computer literacy, analytical skills and effective team working.

 

Marie-Curie fellowship Mobility requirement:

At the time of recruitment by CIC nanoGUNE, candidates must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work or studies) in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.

 

We Offer:

Full time 3 years contract. Envisaged starting date: April 2017.

Stimulating, interdisciplinary research and high quality international scientific environment.
