NANOSCALE TRANSPORT

Electron, Phonon and Spin Transport in Nanoscale Quantum Devices

We engineer electrical, vibrational and optical properties of nanoscale molecular devices using phase-coherent quantum and phonon interference for various applications such as molecular electronic building blocks, sensors, molecular spintronic, thermoelectric, piezoelectric and optoelectronic devices.

Open positions

1- One post-doc position is available for 1 year (extendable for 2 years) within Nanoscale Transport Group. The candidates should have a PhD and have experience with modelling of transport properties of nanoscale junctions from first principles using density functional theory, nano-equilibrium Green's function method and molecular dynamics.

2- Two PhD studentships (three years) are available within Nanoscale Transport Group to work on electron and phonon transport through molecular junctions. Due to the funding source, the candidates should be from UK or EU countries.

To apply, please send a single pdf document including your CV, a cover letter and two reference letters to Dr. H. Sadeghi.
