The Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics, University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia has an opening for a doctoral student in experimental physics of two-dimensional heterostructures. The student will embark onto a research of the role of Moiré patterns on charge transport in two-dimensional heterostructures. A successful candidate will learn how to fabricate graphene/insulator/graphene tunneling junctions. To this end he/she will become familiar with graphene exfoliation and manipulation, optical lithography, scanning probe techniques and measurements of low electric currents. The enrollment into the doctoral study program Physics 3rd level of the Graduate School University of Nova Gorica is required. The successful candidate will also be expected to serve as a teaching assistant in undergraduate physics classes at the School of sciences of the University of Nova Gorica. The position is for four years and comes with complete salary with fringe benefits, therefore a permit to work in the European Union will be required prior to the start of the position. A completed MS in physics with GPA of minimum 8/10 is required. Excellent communication skills; fluent written and verbal command of English are a must. We especially encourage candidates with affinity to the experimental solid state physics, with good knowledge of electronic properties of solids to apply.
Please provide the following documents, when applying for this position:
curriculum vitae, with eventual publication list
a statement of research interests

About the Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics University of Nova Gorica Slovenia
The Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics University of Nova Gorica carries out a range of fundamental and applied research in organic electronics and two-dimensional materials, with the emphasis on charge transport in thin layers of organic semiconductors and blends of organic semiconductors and graphene. To this end we operate a unique experimental setup for measuring time-dependent photoconductivity, coupled to a complete sample fabrication facility including a clean-room with 1-micron-photolithography, a glove-box with integrated metallization chamber and organic thin film fabrication facilities ranging from evaporation to liquid-based methods. Graphene-based heterostructures are fabricated by a dedicated flake manipulation apparatus. The group has also full access to an array of advanced characterization techniques including FEG SEM and TEM and time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The group regularly collaborates with several important groups across Europe focusing on organic electronics and graphene and is a partner member of the Graphene Flagship. The position is funded by the Slovenian research agency, with a competitive salary, which complements nicely the renowned high-quality of living in Slovenia, known for its safety, unspoiled nature and friendly people.
