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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), and/or
– Dr. Pedro de Andres (email@example.com).
stating their interests and previous formation. Reference letters will be appreciated.
Deadline: February 2012
