International Women and Girls in Science Day. What would have happened if Einstein had been born a woman?

On the occasion of International Women and Girls in Science Day, researchers are launching the #NoMoreMatildas campaign to make their work visible.
“Can you imagine what would have happened if Einstein had been born a woman? We probably wouldn’t know who she was. ”

Put an eye on this interesting video 😉

Dr. Arántzazu González talk about “The Matilda effect” in Catalunya Radio Programme “Les dones i els dies”

What is Matilda effect? The Matilda Effect is known as the constant invisibilization of women in the science field. They don’t appear in the science or history boks, and their research results are many times diluted among the results of their male colleagues, maybe because these latter reclaim its authorship or because it is not believed that what their female colleagues are researching is important enough.

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.
