The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, NANOSURF Laboratory, Prague, Czech Republic invites applications for Experimental PhD position in physical chemistry or condensed matter physics.

There is opening of PhD position in NANOSURF Lab ( https://nanosurf.fzu.cz/ (link is external) ), Institute of Physics, Prague, Czech Academy of Sciences. Subject of PhD thesis is experimental study of one-dimensional molecular chains on surfaces. The candidate will employ the state-of-the-art low-temperature scanning probe microscopy including advanced force and current spectroscopies. New reactions mechanism of on-surface synthesis will be explored to form novel 1D metalorganic and pi-conjugated chains under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Main objective of the PhD study will be exploration of exotic material properties of 1D including possibility of excitonic/polaronic condensation, Floquet engineering or topological phase transition. Further development of advanced scanning probe techniques is expected. The research will be conducted in a tight collaboration with theoretical research activities conducted within the NANOSURF Lab employing the state-of-the-art theoretical and computational tools.

We are looking for highly qualified candidates with background in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science. You must hold the equivalent of a Masters Degree. The candidate should be fluent in English.

We offer a stimulating environment with large synergy between experiment and theory, which will give you the opportunity to develop your professional skills and own ideas.

Why should you apply?
- Work in an academic environment.
- Work with enthusiastic and open-minded colleagues.
- Opportunities for self-development and career growth.
- Many benefits: 5 weeks of holidays, meal vouchers.
- Additional scientific courses and language courses.

The contract is for 4 years with possibility of extension and it is supported by National Center of Excellence founded by Czech Science Foundation.
