Research Associate in 2D Nanomaterials

A fixed-term, part-time postdoctoral research position in the field of synthesis and characterisation of two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials is available within Dr Adelina Ilie’s group in the Department of Physics. The position is 0.6 FTE (21.9 hours per week) and is available from mid-June 2019 until February 2020.

The post will involve the growth of 2D nanomaterials through Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) routes, and their subsequent incorporation in heterostructures and investigation of resulting electronic properties. A strong focus is on characterisation at the atomic/nanoscale level using Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV), atomically-resolved Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM); this will be backed by structural characterization using a combination of supporting methods (such as X-ray diffraction, Transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy etc.)

Candidates should have prior experience in the deposition of 2D nanomaterials via CVD, and characterisation using scanning probes and other relevant techniques.

For further information, please contact Dr Adelina Ilie (
