OFFER DESCRIPTION

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The Functional Optoelectronic NanoMaterials group at ICFO, led by ICREA Prof. Gerasimos Konstantatos, is looking for an outstanding, creative and highly motivated researcher to develop highly sensitive, CMOS compatible, infrared photodetectors employing graphene or 2D materials and colloidal quantum dot.

The project is focused on optical detection in the mid and long wave infrared. The incumbent should have demonstrated experience and hands-on expertise on the fabrication and characterization of photodetectors, ideally in the infrared and most preferably in the mid and long wave infrared. Alternatively, demonstrated expertise on fabrication and characterization of 2D-based photodetectors, particularly in the infrared, should be demonstrated. The fellow should have strong background on the physics of 2D or QD devices and be familiar in the preparation of setups for the optical and electronic characterization of devices. Knowledge and experience in charge transport studies, low noise techniques and/or optical instrumentation in the mid and long wave infrared would be considered a plus. Direct demonstrated expertise of the afore-mentioned features in the field of colloidal quantum dot optoelectronics, albeit not required, will be positively evaluated.
