MN-7 Researcher – Materials & Devices
Contract Type: Full Time/Fixed Term
A 24 month postdoctoral researcher position is open in the group of Dr. Michael Nolan at Tyndall National Institute, UCC to work on the newly funded Science Foundation Ireland – National Science Foundation of China research project NITRALD.
This project involves the modelling, deposition and characterisation of bilayer metal/metal-nitride and single-layer ternary nitride films which can function as barrier/liner materials in nanoscale interconnects. We aim to model and thus advance the understanding of nitrogen based plasma deposition and use this information to optimise the growth of these films at the partner lab in Fudan, China. This is an important activity for nanoscale electronics as the bottleneck will be the interconnect scaling rather than transistor performance.
Appointment may be made on the IUA Researcher Scale €36,853 - €43,828.
