  • Cleanroom device fabrication and nanolithography (i.e. EBL).
  • Extensive experience with electron transport measurements at room and cryogenic temperatures
  • Solid theoretical background and knowledge of concepts and methods solid state physics.

Relevant qualifications
  • Experience with assembly of van der Waals heterostructures and 2D device
  • Experience with characterisation techniques for graphene such as Raman spectroscopy, SEM, TEM and AFM
  • Hands-on experience with design and construction of smaller laboratory equipment, i.e. electronics
  • Characterisation of organic and metal-organic frameworks

General qualifications
  • Scientific production and research potential at international level
  • Innovative skills and the ability to generate new ideas
  • Independent problem-solving skills
  • Excellent communication and language skills (English language)
  • Experience with international collaborations and collaborations with industry
