Research Assistant / Associate in 2D Semiconductors

University of Cambridge

A Research Assistant/ Research Associate position is available immediately to develop low resistance electronic contacts on two dimensional semiconductors. The project, which is funded by the EPSRC, will involve fabrication of state-of-the art tunnel field effect transistors devices using two dimensional semiconductors and low resistance contacts based on indium and other metals.

Applicants must have expert knowledge of 2D semiconductors, fabrication of field effect transistors using electron beam lithography, electronic measurements using probe station and physical property measurement system. Applicants should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in the relevant subject. The experimental work to be undertaken will be: synthesis of 2D materials, characterization using spectroscopic and microscopy techniques, deposition of indium and non-indium contacts, fabrication of novel field effect transistors, measurement of electronic transport properties.

The successful candidate will work in the 2D Materials and Devices Group under the supervision of Professor Manish Chhowalla.

Applications should include a covering letter, CV and publications list.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance. The position is available immediately.
