MN-11 Researcher – Simulation of Passivation Schemes for Germanium Surfaces and Nanostructures for Nanoelectronics
Contract: Full Time/ Fixed Term (24 months)
A 24-month postdoctoral researcher position is available under the supervision of Dr. Michael Nolan in the Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork. This position involves the simulation of passivation schemes for germanium surfaces and nanostructures for nanoelectronics using first principles simulations, working together with experimental collaborators.
The Tyndall National Institute is a world leader in the application of materials modelling to both fundamental and industry problems. Working closely with a global industry player in electronics and partners in UCC and CIT, the modelling group provides rational design of materials and their growth across a range of technologies.
This project leverages the group’s strengths in materials modelling and active collaborations in Europe to deliver breakthroughs in surface passivation.
The successful postdoctoral researcher will play be responsible for the modelling work in this newly funded Enterprise Ireland Innovation Partnership Project. The work involves running first principles simulations and possibly molecular dynamics simulations of passivation schemes and interfaces on semiconductor surfaces.
The researcher will be expected to write scientific papers, present at international conferences and workshop and represent Tyndall at project meetings and drive the project work forwards.
