The position will be available from 1 October 2017. The employment contract is limited to three years. The regular weekly working time will be 19,5 hours. The salary is based on the collective agreement TVöD-Bund. The place of work is Dresden-Rossendorf.
2D inorganic materials have unique electronic and optical properties, but many systems are unstable in air. A possible solution is to encapsulate them between graphene or BN sheets, which are chemically inert. Moreover, such an approach makes it possible to create new materials with reduced dimensionalities. In the project “Imaging and atomic structure engineering of quasi-two-dimensional materials encapsulated between graphene sheets” (Principal Investigators Ute Kaiser, University of Ulm, and Arkady Krasheninnikov, HZDR) funded by DFG, we are going to study such systems and their transformations under electron beam by combining high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (to be performed at University of Ulm, https://www.uni-ulm.de/einrichtungen/hrem/) with atomistic simulations. The project will give a unique opportunity to carry out a theoretical research in a ‘hot’ area in close collaboration with one of the world-leading experimental groups focused on the electron microscopy of low-dimensional systems. The groups have successfully worked together with many joint papers in high-impact journals, and it is expected that many important results will be obtained, which would enable one to explore promising avenues for engineering the structure and properties of novel encapsulated nanostructures.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Arkady Krasheninnikov, Tel.: +49 351 260 - 3148 or Dr. Stefan Facsko, Tel.: +49 351 260 - 2987.
