FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group at the ICMAB (Institute of Material Science of Barcelona, Bellaterra, Spain) interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices with the goal of developing functional molecular-based platforms for electronic and/or sensing applications.

Job Description
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create hybrid graphene-based three-terminal nanodevices. The postdoctoral fellow will oversee the design, fabrication and characterization of graphene-based electrodes separated by a nano-gap (<2 nm) using controlled electroburning, as well as the analysis and treatment of the experimental data. Electronic transport measurements of three-terminal nanodevices will be performed in a probe station under various environmental conditions to assess their efficiency and robustness as electronic sensors.

The devices will be prepared using molecular-based materials as active components, an area in which the group has extensive experience. A key aspect of the project is the functionalization of graphene electrodes via e.g. covalent and supramolecular attachment. We thus seek a candidate with excellent nanofabrication skills, who ideally has a background in graphene nanotechnologies.

Postdoctoral position in Organic Chemistry and Surfaces.


FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices of different nature with the goal of developing responsive molecular-based platforms useful for electronic and/or sensor purposes. 

Job Description 

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create highly-conjugated molecular-based materials to accommodate them in nano-devices. The postdoctoral fellow must have an extensive knowledge on characterization in solution, in the solid state and on surfaces. The project will require two phases, a first one related to the synthesis of the systems and a second one toward the deposition of the materials on different substrates. The successful candidate should have experience in organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and surface chemistry. Expertise in soft-deposition techniques and analysis of SAMs will be highly regarded.

BCN, 27 SEPT 2019: The ICMAB, at the European Researchers' Night with &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;

On Friday, 27 September 2019, most European countries and cities celebrate the European Researchers’ Night: an event in which science professionals bring their work closer to citizens through multiple public events. The goal is to show the diversity of research fields and the impact that science has on our daily lives. Some ICMAB researchers will give talks at CosmoCaixa, we also organize a workshop on nanomedicine and… you will be able to see the dramatised lecture “Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers” in CosmoCaixa! Don’t miss it!

Supramolecular block copolymers incorporating chiral and achiral chromophores for the bottom-up assembly of nanomaterials
Marta Riba-Moliner, Cristina Oliveras-González, David B. Amabilino, and Arántzazu González-Campo*

Incorporation of chiral and achiral Zn-porphyrins can block copolymers via
axial metal coordination for supramolecular hybrid materials. The supramolecular organization and possible chirality transfer to the hybrid materials
have been studied in solution and solid state.

ICMAB, 8-9 May 2019: Organic and Molecular Electronics Meeting at ICMAB (ORGI2019)

The second Organic and Molecular Electronics Meeting at ICMAB (ORGI2019) will take place on 8-9 May 2019 at ICMAB.
