Postdoctoral and PhD Positions in Molecular Electronics / Scanning Probe Microscopy

ETH Zurich
Postdoctoral and PhD Positions in Molecular Electronics / Scanning Probe Microscopy

The Nanotechnology Group at ETH Zurich ( ) invites applications at the postdoctoral and PhD level to work in the area of the assembly and functional characterization of molecular
electronic devices.

Molecular electronic devices employ individual molecules or their assemblies as functional building blocks in electronic circuits. This concept is a potential candidate to overcome the increasing difficulties and soon fundamental limitations current CMOS technology faces upon further downscaling in the quest for higher performance.

The Nanotechnology Group is active in the field of directed assembly and advanced scanning probe microscopy to study electronic properties on the nanometer scale and below. Within the frame of our research interests, projects are available that combine conventional charge transport measurements on molecular electronic devices with high-resolution scanning probe microscopy of the functional components.

Candidates should be creative and highly motivated to conduct explorative research, interested to work in an interdisciplinary environment, and have a strong background in physics, physical
chemistry or a related field. Ideally, candidates have documented experience in one or more of the following areas: fabrication and electrical characterization of single molecule junctions or arrays, atomic resolution AFM or STM, self-assembly, surface functionalization, instrument development.

Applications with a full CV, list of publications, statement of research interests, and names and e-mail addresses of three referees should be submitted online:

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

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
