The project AtomSparQ aims at performing state-of-the-art low temperature (5 K) Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) on quantum device structures containing low-dimensional nanomaterials (Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene, TMDC and h-BN). This approach allows on the one hand a detailed understanding on how atomic inhomogeneities in a material (e.g. vacancy, coordination or impurity defects) impact the device performance. On the other hand, the electronic properties of the system under investigation can be manipulated, e.g. by electrostatic doping (gating), and the detailed modifications can be followed by SPM characterization. The main task of the postdoc will be the fabrication and SPM characterization of such device structures. The main platform to be used will be a low temperature OMICRON QPlus nc-AFM/STM system, with access to auxiliary SPM and Photoemission Spectroscopy UHV systems in our laboratory as well as access to clean room facilities.

We offer a 2 year postdoc position within an international team of highly motivated researchers with a very strong background in surface physics, nanomaterials synthesis, characterization and modelling. The successful candidate will benefit from an excellently equipped and efficient work environment in an internationally renowned laboratory.

We are looking for a highly motivated person (m/f) ready to work independently and in an international research team. The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. degree preferably in experimental physics, chemistry or materials science with relation to nanoscience and have experience in UHV Scanning Probe Microscopy, UHV surface science and/or nanodevice fabrication and characterization.
