Spain : PhD at the Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group

We seek a candidate to be employed as a PhD student within the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group. The PhD candidate will be working on comprehensive thermal measurements by thermal SPM-based techniques (quantitative thermal characterization at the nanoscale), known as “Scanning Thermal Microscopy” (SThM), which is based on the exchange of thermal energy between a nanotip and a surface with dedicated nanoprobes.
The candidate will also be involved in the fabrication of samples by direct self-assembly of block copolymers and block copolymer nanocomposites
The PhD candidate will be working within the ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures group ( The thesis involves areas ranging from the physics of heat transport, instrumentation and metrology, nanofabrication to material science.
The candidate should have a BSc´s and Master’s degree in Physics, Material Science, Engineering or relevant studies. Excellent communication skills are essential while English language is a prerequisite.

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
