HeyrovskĂ˝ Institute of Physical Chemistry of the CAS, v.v.i., offers a postdoctoral position under the project:
Probing Electron Transport Mechanism in Single Molecule Junctions by Conductance and
Project aims at fundamental research in molecular electronics, at understanding of the electron transport characteristics in metal-molecule-metal systems using temperature-resolved break junction techniques and development of simultaneous single molecule conductance and thermopower measurements.
- PhD degree in physical chemistry with specialization in electrochemistry, but any field related to the project will be considered (maximum 7 years from receiving the degree)
- Experience in writing of scientific papers and presentation of results (at least 2 scientific papers within the last three years)
- Advanced level of written and spoken English
- Competencies necessary for team-work
Research position in more detail: Successful applicant will use Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Break Junction technique to study charge transport properties in a series of organic molecules with the aim to confirm their specific functionality within the molecular electronics design.
