POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW position in molecular electronics

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW position for the research project:

Probing Electron Transport Mechanism in Single Molecule Junctions by Conductance and Thermoelectricity Measurements.


Project aims at fundamental research in molecular electronics, at understanding of the electron transport characteristics in metal-molecule-metal systems using temperature-resolved break junction techniques and development of simultaneous single molecule conductance and thermopower measurements.

General requirements:

  • PhD degree in physical chemistry, electrochemistry or physics (maximum 7 years from receiving the degree)
  • Experience in writing of scientific papers and presentation of results
  • Advanced level of written and spoken English
  • Competencies necessary for team-work

Research position in more detail: Successful applicant will use Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Break Junction technique to study charge transport properties in a series of organic molecules with the aim to confirm their specific functionality within the molecular electronics design.
