PhD Studentships

PhD student positions are available at the Laboratory of Nanoscale Electronics and Structures at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) headed by Prof. Andras Kis. Highly motivated students will have an opportunity to work on projects related to novel nanoelectronic devices based on 2D materials as well as nanomaterial growth.

The group employs electrical transport measurements, optical and characterisation, AFM and related techniques for measurements on mesoscopic electronic devic that we fabricate in the EPFL class 100 cleanroom in order to study fundamental properties and practical applications of 2D materials.

PhD projects in the group cover a broad range of topics related to the science and technology of 2D semiconductors, including quantum transport, optics and optoelectronics, synthesis, field-effect and nanomechanical devices.

Requirements include a Master’s degree in physics, electrical engineering or materials science. Proficiency in spoken and written English is also required. Previous experience in cleanroom processing, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, instrumentation programming or thin film growth is desirable.

Candidates are invited to send a CV (as a pdf or rtf attachment only) including a brief description of research experience, statement of research interest and the contact information for three references by e-mail to [email protected].
