ICMAB-CSIC is looking for postdoctoral researchers wanting to apply to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) in 2022. ICMAB-CSIC has full experience in MSCA actions. It puts a big effort in MSCA-PF calls, having achieved high success rate in the last years.

Due to technological limitations associated with the use of silicon, substantial efforts are currently devoted to developing organic electronics and, in particular, organic field-effect transistors (OFETs). Indeed, the processing characteristics of organic semiconductors make them potentially useful for electronic applications where low-cost, large area coverage and structural flexibility are required. However, in order to move towards applications, there are some fundamental aspects that need to be further understood to be able to achieve high performing devices with high reproducibility. In particular, the work here will explore the influence of interfaces on the device performance and on the structural and morphological characteristics of the organic thin films. The devices fabricated in the group are applied in sensing applications, such as photodetectors or in bio-sensing. The Molecular Materials for Electronics Group (e-MolMat, https://molecularelectronics.icmab.es/) from ICMAB-CSIC is looking for postdoctoral researchers with Physics or Chemistry background who are interested in the development of organic electronic devices. The candidate will have the opportunity to handle a variety of multidisciplinary techniques and join a research team which has a long expertise in the field or organic electronics and has actively participated in many European projects in this area.

How to apply

Interested candidates, please send your CV and a brief outline ofthe proposed research project (1 page maximum) to Prof. Marta Mas(mmas@icmab.es) before July 15th 2022.

Description of MSCA Post-doctoral fellowships

The objective of PFs is to support researchers’ careers and foster excellence in research. The Postdoctoral Fellowships action targets researchers holding a PhD who wish to carry out their research activities abroad, acquire new skills and develop their careers. PFs help researchers gain experience in other countries, disciplines and non-academic sectors. The fellowship typically covers the researcher's salary (living and mobility allowance) for two years, research, training and networking activities costs and overheads for the host institution.

Eligibility rules

The mobility rule of MSCA PF requires that the researcher (candidate) has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, for ICMAB-CSIC) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the call deadline (expected to be September 14th 2022 for call 2022). Moreover, only candidates with research experience up to 8 years postdoc from the date the PhD degree was granted are eligible(with possible exceptions).
