Position Description

The postdoctoral fellow in materials science and/or physical chemistry will be located at the Center for Environmental and Energy Research of the Ghent University Global Campus, South Korea. The campus is located in the city of Song-do, Incheon.
The postdoctoral fellow will work under the supervision of Prof. Serge Zhuiykov on the physical and electronic properties of ultra-thin two-dimensional (2D) metal oxide semiconductors fabricated by atomic layer deposition (ALD). ALD is a high vacuum, the ultra-precise technique for deposition of a variety of ultra-thin films with nano-metric dimensionalities. Outstanding optoelectronic, biosensing and memristive properties are recently observed and reported owning to the distinguished properties of 2D oxide materials. The research group enthusiastically endeavors to explore the novel characteristics of 2D oxide films.
Furthermore, as the teaching assistant, the postdoctoral fellow will be responsible to organize and implement the practical courses, laboratory sessions and also to follow the teaching responsibilities. The applicant will also be responsible for the guidance of bachelor students for their bachelor thesis.
Selection Criteria
• Completion of a Ph.D. in one of the following disciplines: Physics, Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Materials Science or other relevant disciplines preferably in related areas.
• A track record and demonstration of aptitude for organizing high-quality research activities as evidenced by research publications, in the leading journals and conferences.
• An outstanding background in areas relevant to Physical Chemistry, optics, bio, and environmental sensing. Candidates should be interested in a study on ultra-thin 2D semiconductor films, ideally with a strong background in semiconductor devices based on 2D materials.
• Experience in working with laser and optical devices, and working in clean environment.
• Demonstrated strong organizational background, skills, and experience in using initiative, working with minimal supervision, and the ability to prioritize the tasks and responsibilities to achieve projected objectives within the timeliness.
• The candidate should be capable of working with materials characterization tests, including Raman, FTIR, SEM, and AFM.
• Excellent interpersonal writing and speaking capabilities in English.
• The capability for teamwork and collaboration with other team members.
• Ability of co-supervision of a junior team members.
• Enough experience in assisting with supervision of students undertaking undergraduate research projects
• More than 2 years of job experience with research and development background (required for visa type E).

How to Apply

The applicant is asked to send their CV, recommendation letters, and the Ph.D. diploma to Prof. Serge Zhuiykov as one PDF file via email: before the deadline date. Deadline: 31 January 2020
