The University invites applications for the above post, available from 1 October 2018 for up to 24 months. This is an opportunity for a talented researcher in experimental condensed matter physics to create and study physical properties of two-dimensional materials, their heterostructures, and devices based on such materials.

We seek an experimentalist with an active interest and excellent track record of publications in physics of low-dimensional materials with strong emphasis on nanofabrication. Skills in optical and transport measurements of 2D heterostructures will be equally welcome.

Funding is provided by the European Graphene Flagship project. The successful candidate will be based at the National Graphene Institute (NGI), a brand-new world-class science and technology centre with a broad scope of research in two-dimensional materials.

Applications should be made online; with your application you should upload a single file comprising your CV, list of publications, and a brief (max 1 page) research statement summarising your research interest, practical experience in 2D nanofabrication and experiments, and career aspirations.

The School is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. The School holds a Bronze Award for their commitment to the representation of women in the workplace and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post.
