Postdoctoral Researcher in Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group

Postdoctoral Researcher in Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group

ICN2 - Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

Barcelona, Spain

Description of Group/Project:

Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices (AEMD) Group focuses on the material sciences and technology aspects of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene as well as other 2D materials (MoS2). The group also works towards the development of technological applications based on these materials such as electronics, bioelectronics and biosensing, neural interfaces, etc.

The activities of the AEMD group cut across different scientific aspects, from the fundamentals (the physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials by CVD, surface functionalisation, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

This research programme is part of the European project BrainCom, which aims at developing a new generation of brain-computer interfaces for cognitive neuroscience and rehabilitation of speech, and the Graphene Flagship.

Within this research programme, the successful candidate will be involved in activities related to the design, fabrication and assessment of a variety of technologies and devices that are at the core of neural interfaces, including:

  • flexible arrays of graphene-based microsensors for brain monitoring;
  • flexible electronics based on 2D semiconductors (e.g. MoS2) for ultraslim neural interfaces.

Apart from contributing to the developments in material science and device technology, the candidate will have the opportunity of designing and conducting preclinical and, eventually, clinical assessment of these technologies.

Education, Experience, Knowledge and Competences required:

Education

  • PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Nanotechnology of equivalent.

Knowledge

  • Experience in materials science, in particular 2D materials;
  • Device/semiconductor technology (cleanroom experience will be very valued) and physics;
  • Experience in neural interface devices for stimulation and recording, bioelectronics, biosensors, etc.;
  • Advanced knowledge in the design of data acquisition and data analysis software (Python, Labview, Labwin).

Professional Experience

  • At least two years experience in collaborative projects;
  • Experience in leading projects will be valued.

Competences

  • Proficiency in English;
  • Teamwork skills very valued.
