  • Successful applicant will join Dr. Matěj Velický and his team on a prestigious Lumina quaeruntur project exploiting tunable electrochemistry and spectroscopy of two-dimensional (2D) materials. You will use state-of-the-art in-situ spectroelectrochemistry approach to characterize, control, and tune of 2D materials' properties. Our group focuses on investigating electronic transport at high-doping regimes, tuning the interaction between semiconductors and substrates, and charge screening/capacitance anomalies in concentrated electrolytes.

    Our team is part of a larger collaboration with the groups of Dr. Otakar Frank, Dr. Martin Kalbáč, and Prof. Ladislav Kavan, including more than 30 postdocs and PhDs, sharing cutting-edge instrumental facilities including potentiostats, Raman/UV/Vis/NIRfluorescence spectrometers, TERS, AFM, XPS, UPS, LEED, ARPES, SEM/TEM, ellipsometry, optical lithography, CVD furnace, etc. We have numerous collaborators in the UK, US, Germany, France, Hungary, and New Zealand. For more information, visit www.


    You will have master's degree in chemistry, materials science, or physics and experience with at least one of the following: electrochemistry, Raman and/or other vis/IR spectroscopy, or 2D materials research. The applicant will have to apply and be admitted to a full-time postgraduate study programme at Charles University in Prague or University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague, Czech Republic.

    Desirable criteria include experience with micro-/nano-scale electrochemistry (SECM, SECCM), surface functionalization, atomic force microscopy, optical lithography, and electronic transport measurements. A publication in a peer- reviewed journal will be and advantage.
