PhD position, 3D Structure Characterization of Nanomaterials - 2019BAPFWETEF018Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Jan-16
The EMAT research group at the Faculty of Science (University of Antwerp) is seeking to fill a PhD position in the area of “3D Structure Characterization of Nanomaterials under Realistic Conditions” under the supervision of Prof Sara Bals.
These vacancies are situated in an H2020 ERC Consolidator grant 3D Structure of Nanomaterials under Realistic Conditions (REALNANO). The overarching goal of REALNANO is to establish the structure-property connection of nanomaterials under realistic conditions. Tracking 3D changes of nanomaterials and their surface ligands in a thermal and gaseous environment is therefore required. We will develop innovative and quantitative 3D characterisation tools, compatible with the fast changes of nanomaterials that occur in a realistic thermal and gaseous environment. To visualise surface ligands, we will combine direct electron detection with novel exit wave reconstruction techniques.
Profile and requirements
Additional information about the vacancy can be obtained from: Sara Bals, tel. +32 3 265 3284, sara.balsuantwerpen.be.
Please submit by 15 April 2019 your motivation letter, CV, summary of your Master and/or PhD thesis, a list and grades of the courses that you took during your studies, and names of 2 professional referees as one single PDF file uploaded on the following Application Submission page.
