EU RESEARCH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMMEH2020
We are seeking motivated student researchers to conduct state-of-the-art research in recently established Laboratory for Advanced Materials at Comenius University (CU) in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Development of 2D nanomaterials for electronics.
The focus of this project is on chemical synthesis and characterization of 2D nanomaterials, structurally related to graphene, studies of the effects of quantum confinement on their properties and their testing in electrochromic and electronic devices, batteries and other applications. The work will be performed in close collaboration with members of the team performing theoretical modeling of the 2D nanomaterials. The work will be performed jointly at LAM and department of Organic Chemistry at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University.
Where will you work? The research will be performed at an EU financed, newly established Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM), located in the recently constructed CU Science Park (https://cusp.uniba.sk). As a PhD student you will be participating in a multi-disciplinary research effort including design and preparation of new materials, their chemical, structural and electronic characterization using variety of advanced characterization methods and development of their applications in energy conversion and storage, optoelectronic and electronics. Your participation in this research will include opportunities to collaborate with other research teams from Comenius University, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak Technical University, as well as our collaborators from other countries of EU and USA. As part of your studies you will have an opportunity to present your research results at various international conferences as well as participate in exchange research visits with our international collaborators.
If you are interested in the position, please contact Dr. Milan Sýkora via e-mail (email@example.com). In the e-mail please state why would you like to work at LAM (in the context of your prior position/experience and your future plans) and attach a CV (one-page max.). Recommendation letter from your mentor of mentors is a plus. You can find more information at: https://fns.uniba.sk/en/lam
Compensation. You will be paid a monthly stipend in the amount of 900-1150 EUR net, depending on your performance and experience, for period of 4 years. After completion of your PhD you may continue your research at the LAM as a postdoctoral researcher, with the possibility to apply for variety of prestigious fellowships (Alexander von Humboldt, Lise Meitner or Marie-Curie Fellowship), for international scientific stays at institutions of your choice and/or apply for positions requiring a PhD, such as senior researcher in chemical and materials science companies, an assistant professor position at one of the universities in Slovakia or abroad, a patent development professional, etc.
