OFFER DESCRIPTION

Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM) (https://fns.uniba.sk/en/lam/) at Comenius University in Bratislava Slovakia is seeking a motivated researcher to conduct state-of-the-art research in the fields of chemistry and materials science. We have currently following open position:

Optical Spectroscopy of Single Inorganic Nanocrystals. The work in this area will focus primarily on characterization of optical properties of quantum confined inorganic nanocrystals as well as development of new spectroscopy characterization tools at a single nanostructure level, using confocal optical microscopy. The project is part of an ongoing collaboration with several prestigious international institutions.

Benefits

Where will you work? The research will be performed at an EU financed, newly established Laboratory for Advanced Materials (LAM), located in the recently constructed CU Science Park (https://cusp.uniba.sk), under the direction of Dr. Milan Sýkora (ERA Chair). As LAM research staff you will become a member of a multi-disciplinary research team of chemists, physicists and material scientists. You will have opportunity to apply and develop modern experimental methods for preparation and characterization of advanced materials and nanomaterials. You will have opportunity to collaborate with other research teams from Comenius University, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovak Technical University, as well as our collaborators from other countries of EU and USA.

 

Compensation. Attractive salary at the EU level, depending on experience and performance. Exceptional candidates may be considered for prestigious Saspro2 (https://saspro2.sav.sk/indexEn.html), or Marie-Curie Fellowships.
