OPEN POSTDOCT POSITION AT THE ESISNA GROUP OF ICMM/CSIC

Functionalizing epitaxial graphene We are currently looking for a postdoc in the framework of the EC-Flagship program. The candidate should have proven experience in ultra high vacuum (UHV) and in some of the surface science characterization techniques (STM, LEED, XPS, synchrotron radiation…). IR experience in UHV will be advantageous. Your…

Diffusion controlled on-surface reactions: formation of N-doped nanoarchitectures

The bottom-up approach aims at forming tailored nanoarchitectures by manipulating organic molecules at atomic level and it is one of the most effective strategies used in nanotechnology. Catalytic surfaces are often used to prompt a particular reaction as they are very successful in modifying a particular molecule in selected ways.…
