Post-doctoral position available at the University of Pisa, Italy


A post-doctoral position is available at the University of Pisa aimed at the fabrication and characterization of silicon nanostructures for thermoelectric applications in support to the theoretical and computational investigation of transport processes carried out at the University of Warwick in the frame of the ERC Starting Grant NANOthermMA (Advanced Simulation Design of Nanostructured Thermoelectric Materials with Enhanced Power Factors).

The activity aims at the development of processes (based on electron-beam lithography, dry/wet etching, and semiconductor doping) for the fabrication of silicon nanostructures with enhanced thermoelectric properties. Heat and electrical transport will be investigated, and results will be used to validate computational models developed at Warwick. 

Duration: 1 year, starting October 1st, 2017, extendable to a second year

Stipend: 30,000 €/yr

Application deadline: Aug. 31, 2017

The post-doctoral position is made available through the University of Milano Bicocca. Requests of information concerning deadlines and application forms should be addressed to
