A PhD fellowship is available to work on the physics of two-dimensional materials (2DM) at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) which is located 30 minutes north of downtown Barcelona, Spain (www.icn2.cat). ICN2 is a young, and vibrant research centre investigating newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale. ICN2 is recognized by the Spanish government by the most prestigious “Severo Ochoa” Centre of Excellence accreditation – one of about 20 centres in Spain to hold the award.

The student will be hosted by the group of Prof. Sergio O. Valenzuela (https://nanodevices.icn2.cat/), whose main focus is on electronic properties of nanomaterials and nanodevices. The group counts with extensive state-of-the-art facilities for material growth, nanodevice design and fabrication, as well as dc and radiofrequency magnetotransport measurements (from 20mK to room temperature). The group activities on 2DMs are funded in part by the H2020 EU Graphene Flagship, the Spanish Research Agency and the Generalitat of Catalonia.
