OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Director of the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Slovak Academy of Sciences announces the following selection procedure for the position:

Postdoctoral position at the Department of Physics and Technology at Nanoscale

 

Job description: The Department of Physics and Technology at Nanoscale of IEE SAS is currently running projects on 2D materials from the group of transition metal dichalcogenides. So far, our research is mainly focused on the growth and material characterisation, but we would like to strengthen the understanding the physics in these materials. For that, IEE SAS opens a postdoctoral position for scientists interested in explaining experimental results from infrared spectroscopy and light scattering measurements of thin films. For instance, we need to extract refractive indices from reflection and transmission spectra in the infrared and visible range. For our Raman measurements, experience in calculating the phonon frequencies and Raman intensities is an advantage. Generally, he or she should be able to analyse as-measured spectra in terms of different physical models. Hence, a strong background in solid-state physics, solid-state spectroscopy or physical chemistry is required.
