Explore the NANOMOTION world: opening of 12 PhD and 1 Postdoc position!

Welcome to ITN “Nanoelectromechanical Motion in Functional Materials”!

NANOMOTION represents a joint European effort involving eight partners seeking to make breakthroughs in nanoelectromechanical characterization of emergent functional materials.. The position is funded by the European Commission in the framework of the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network “NANOMOTION”. NANOMOTION aims at the development of the next generation of multifunctional materials (piezoelectrics, ferroelectrics, multiferroics, ionic conductors and polar biomaterials) using novel nanoelectromechanical tools: Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM) and Electrochemical Strain Microscopy (ESM) as well as their combination with traditional scanning probe microscopy methods. NANOMOTION is intended to train the next generation of scientists, engineers and technologists in the fundamental aspects of nanoelectromechanics and to apply advanced PFM/ESM tools to study a wide range of emergent multifunctional materials.


Opportunities are available as follows:

12 PhD positions:
- Lead-free piezoelectrics (University of Leeds - UK, Tyndall Institute - Ireland )

- Nanostructured ferroelectrics (Nanotec/ICMM - Spain)

- Calculations and modelling (Uiniversity of Duisburg-Essen - Germany)

- Magnetoelectric and multiferroic materials (National Physical Laboratory – UK, University of Duisburg-Essen - Germany)

- Piezoelectric biomaterials and nanostructures (University of Aveiro - Portugal, University College Dublin - Ireland)

- Battery materials for energy storage (Bosch - Germany)

1 postdoc position:

- Development of PFM and ESM methods (University of Aveiro – Portugal, Nanotec - Spain)


Research Fields

Materials Science, Physics, Scanning Probe Microscopy, Chemistry.


Career Stage

Early stage researcher or 0-4 yrs (master degree or equivalent) 
Experienced researcher or 4-10 yrs (postdoc) 



Researchers will receive a competitive salary and generous allowances for travel and for participation in the training and research events of the Network. An employment is possible after successful completion of PhD thesis.
