The Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics, University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia wishes to hire a post-doctoral associate in experimental physics of two-dimensional heterostructures. A Ph.D. in experimental solid-state physics with experience in graphene exfoliation and scanning probe techniques is a requirement. Familiarity with transport measurements in van der Waals heterostructures and optical lithography is highly desirable. Areas of research for the incumbent of this position will include: fabrication graphene/insulator/graphene tunneling junctions and studies of the role of Moiré patterns on charge transport in two-dimensional heterostructures. The successful candidate will also be expected to s teach in undergraduate physics classes at the School of sciences of the University of Nova Gorica. The position is for one year with a possible extension for another year. A preference will be given to the candidates with an exceptional scientific track record, which warrants an academic title of Assistant professor, and their application for the title at the School of sciences will be sponsored by the Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics. Consequently, upon a successful habilitation the candidate will be offered a new two-year tenure-track position.
Please provide the following documents, when applying for this position:
curriculum vitae comprising a detailed description of the research experience,
list of publications
two recommendation letters
Applications should be sent by e-mail as a single file in pdf format to the University of Nova Gorica personnel office, (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications arriving before 1.8.2019 will receive a full consideration.

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. Sample characterization is performed by two scanning probe microscopes. 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 Laboratory of Organic Matter Physics offers a competitive salary, which complements nicely the renowned high-quality of living in Slovenia, known for its safety, unspoiled nature and friendly people.
