OFFER DESCRIPTION

Postdoc position (f/m, 1 position) to be employed for a fixed term of one year, on research within the project “Functionalized two-dimensional Materials“, funded by the Croatian Science Foundation (UIP-2020-02-8891). The research topic is in the field of surface physics and physics of 2D materials (such as graphene, molybdenum disulfide and tungsten disulfide), and their functionalization with organic molecules. The candidate will work on the functionalization of 2D materials with organic molecules and examine the influence of various external conditions on the properties of the obtained materials. Various experimental techniques (STM in ambient and UHV conditions, AFM, SEM, Raman, PL and transport measurements) will be used for characterization.

Candidates are expected to have experience in experimental work in at least one of the following: synthesis and characterization of 2D materials, scanning probe microscopes (AFM, STM), use and maintenance of UHV setups, synthesis of organic molecules and/or surface chemistry. High motivation to work in the laboratory on the described topic and excellent knowledge of English are also expected.

Preference will be given to candidates who have shown excellence in their work so far (published in top journals, presented at international conferences, received awards, scholarships, etc.) and who have practical experience in more than one of the previously mentioned experimental techniques and methods.

Mandatory requirements are: completed doctorate in natural sciences (PhD), field of physics (with a focus on surface physics: 2D materials research or organic molecules on surfaces and/or working with UHV equipment) or chemistry (experience in synthesis of organic molecules and/or surface chemistry and characterization of organic molecules on surfaces).

The application should include: evidence of fulfillment of mandatory requirements, certificate of doctoral degree in physics or chemistry, motivation letter with a brief description of scientific interests and plans, curriculum vitae with a list of publications indicating the advantages and experience of the candidate and contact details of at least two scientists from whom a recommendation may be requested.

Applicants who have obtained a higher education qualification outside Croatia must enclose the decision on the Recognition of a foreign higher education qualification issued by the Agency for Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Croatia or a certificate of submitted application for Recognition of a foreign higher education qualification by the Agency for Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Croatia.
