Ph.D. Grant offered


Financed by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology

Rolling grant MAT2011-26534 (Reactivity of Organic Molecules on Surfaces, REOMS)

Funding to develop research work in the ESISNA group (ICMM-CSIC) is offered for a person holding a physics/chemistry degree. The successful candidate is expected to work towards his/her PhD around the general subject of reactivity of organic molecules on surfaces, in particular the formation of fullerenes and graphene layers on metals and metal-oxides. The PhD will combine experimental and theoretical work, performing experiments in Ultra-High Vacuum with different Surface Science Techniques (e.g., Variable-Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscopy), and using ab-initio Density Functional Theory to interpret the experiments.

Interested candidates should send a CV to

Dr. Javier Mendez (, and/or

Dr. Pedro de Andres (

stating their interests and previous formation. Reference letters will be appreciated.

Deadline: February 2012
