PhD Student High-resolution spectroscopy of carbon nanotubes, Belgium


4-year PhD Student Position:

High-resolution spectroscopy of carbon nanotubes and their hybrid structures

Experimental Condensed Matter Physics Laboratory - University of Antwerp - Antwerp - Belgium

Within the framework of ERC Starting Grant ‘ORDERin1D’ of supervisor Sofie Cambré, the Experimental Condensed Matter Physics Laboratory (ECM) of the University of Antwerp (Belgium) has a vacancy for a full-time PhD student in the field of high-resolution spectroscopy of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and their hybrid structures that are synthesized by filling the CNTs with functional molecules.

Research context: The ECM group has made several important breakthroughs in the processing, spectroscopic characterization, filling and sorting of CNTs. Particularly important to this project is the high-resolution spectroscopic characterization of the filling of CNTs, with state-of-the-art optical and spectroscopic equipment, such as tunable wavelength resonant Raman scattering spectroscopy and wavelength-dependent fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging, and innovative processing and separation techniques.


  • Master in Physics, Materials Science or Chemistry with excellent grades (if you have not obtained your diploma yet, but expect to do so in the near future, please apply already)
  • You have a very good and broad background in Materials Sciences
  • Motivated for experimental research and obtaining a PhD
  • Good communication skills in English are requested
  • Knowledge of Matlab is appreciated

We offer:

  • An exciting trajectory towards a PhD degree
  • A multidisciplinary and stimulating work environment, in a young and dynamic research team
  • A doctoral scholarship for a period of two years, with the possibility of renewal for a further two-year period after positive evaluation
  • A salary based on the Belgian University Salary System for PhD students.

Starting date: 2016 (Start date as soon as possible, in agreement with the candidate)

Interested candidates are invited to send a motivation letter, CV and contact information of any references to:; mentioning our reference ‘VacCNT16’ in the subject line before 16 October 2016.
