Electron Microscopy and Analysis of Semiconductor Nanowires and Devices based on them (Ref. No. NP - 01) (Cork, Ireland)

Project Title: Tuning surface and dopant properties of silicon and germanium nanowires for high performance nanowire based field-effect transistors.

Job Description:

The project aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the structure and composition of the main building units of nanowire based FETs by applying advanced electron microscopy and elemental analysis methods, and combined with electrical testing to give a detailed description of the function of nanowire based FET devices.

Applications are invited for a funded postgraduate studentship in this field. The successful candidate will have a good undergraduate degree in physics, chemistry, engineering or materials sciences. Good understanding of electron microscopy techniques is advantageous but not compulsory. Candidates will enroll in an academic department (e.g., electronic engineering, physics, chemistry) at University College Cork and will be part of Tyndall’s structured PhD programme. A key aspect of the PhD programme is training, which will entail attendance at postgraduate courses. In addition, the candidate will attend courses on transferable research skills (presentation, report writing etc) as necessary.

Further details can be obtained from Dr. Nikolay Petkov (nikolay.petkov@tyndall.ie)

To apply, please submit a CV to careers@tyndall.ie quoting the reference number.

At this time, Tyndall National Institute does not require the assistance of recruitment agencies.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
