PhD position in Synthesis and Characterisation of van der Waals Materials

(1.0 FTE)

Job description

In this PhD position you will perform exploratory work in in the field of van der Waals (vdW) materials. The project studies the synthesis and structural characterisation of crystalline vdW compounds, as well as their magnetic properties. During the project you will use national and international collaborations to help study the materials.

  • learn to apply various synthesis / crystal growth techniques to create van der Waals materials;
  • acquire skills in scattering techniques using in-house and international research facilities;
  • gain a deeper understanding of magnetism in 2D;
  • develop academic skills such as effective science communication (written and oral), building collaboration networks and teaching.
  • Qualifications

    With your ambition and creative skills, you will discover more about the interface between physics and chemistry. To apply for this position, you should meet several or all of the following criteria:

  • a (soon completed) Master's degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials science or a related field;
  • a good understanding of solid state chemistry and/or solid state physics;
  • strong motivation, flexibility, and the ability to run multiple projects simultaneously;
  • excellent communication skills in English, both oral and written.
  • Previous hands-on experience with crystal growth, crystal structure determination and refinement will be considered a significant advantage.
