Post-Doctoral Fellowship for "Electron Microscopy (S/TEM) in Quantum Structures embedded in Nanowires and other nonplanar Nanostructures for Energy Applications"

Job reference: 024-2015


Study of the structure and chemistry at the atomic scale correlated to the physical properties at the nanoscale by advanced Electron Nanoscopy in low-dimensional semiconductor nano and quantum structures (nanowires, quantum dots and nanoparticles) for energy applications. The candidate will apply his knowledge in S/TEM and related spectroscopies (EELS, EDX,etc.) to improve the methodologies for advanced atomic resolution characterizatiopn. Application of 3D methods as electron tomography as well as in-situ optical characterization based on light spectroscopies such as cathodoluminescence will be also applied.


Prof. Jordi Arbiol, group leader of the Advanced Electron Nanoscopy Group (GAe-N) at Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia, ICN2 will be the project Supervisor, and his group, the hosting one. As the group has a strong transversal character, the candidate will be expected to collaborate with other groups at the ICN2 and also at the International level.


Secondments at EPFL and at ER-C Jülich are planned. At EPFL for the application of in-situ CL-spectroscopy measurements on the Solar Energy Fuel devices as well as for the use of the advanced electron microscopes placed there. The secondments at the ER-C in Jülich will promote the advancement in-situ electronic characterization of the nanostructures at the nanometer scale in their advanced microscopes, allowing a direct correlation to the physical and chemical properties at the atomic scale.



The candidate must have a minimum of 2 years post-doc experience with high skills in S/TEM and related spectroscopies (EELS, EDX,etc.). Knowledge on electron tomography as well as on light spectroscopies as cathodoluminescence will be a plus.

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
