Applications are invited for a Research Associate position within the condensed matter physics group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at The University of Manchester. You will join a vibrant team of researchers who have been at the forefront of graphene research since its discovery in 2004 and will work on grant funded projects relating to graphene and other 2D materials.
The post is available immediately for a period of up to 24 months and will include a number of projects involving the fabrication, characterization and investigation of the electronic and other properties of 2D materials. It is expected the project will lead to high impact scientific publications and technological development of graphene and 2D materials based devices.
You will hold, or be about to obtain, a PhD in condensed matter physics. Preference will be given to applicants with significant experience in fabricating 2D atomic materials devices and van der Waals Heterostructures. You will have experience in the electronic and other properties of 2D materials and should also be well-organised and self-motivated with excellent communication skills. A strong publication record in internationally peer reviewed journals is essential.
