Opportunity

The Laboratory of Nanostructured Materials for Environmental and Biological Analyses invites applications for a post-doctoral research fellowship funded by São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). This fellowship is linked to the Thematic Project “Toward a convergence of technologies: from sensing and biosensing to information visualization and machine learning for data analysis in clinical diagnosis” (FAPESP process number: 2018/22214-6).

Supervisor

Carlos José Leopoldo Constantino (full professor).

Institution

Department of Physics, São Paulo State University (UNESP), campus in the city of Presidente Prudente, São Paulo State, Brazil (https://www.international.unesp.br/).

Fellowship components

It includes a monthly stipend (R$ 7,373.10) and research contingency funds (15% of the annual value of the fellowship for using in activities developed by the Fellowship holder, strictly related to the fellowship research project).

Duration of the post-doctoral fellowship

Up to 48 months (starting 1 December 2020 or as soon as possible; ending up to 28 February 2025).

Candidate requirements

She or he should have concluded the PhD less than seven years before the beginning of the post-doctoral fellowship. Applicants must have a PhD in physics, chemistry, materials science or related fields. The successful candidate must have excellent communication skills and excel in a highly collaborative research environment. In addition to the timely publication of research results in peer-reviewed journals, the responsibilities of the post-doctoral include drafting progress reports. The successful candidate will conduct research on: Detection of pesticides using surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy. Therefore, this research includes experimental activities using techniques such as:

  • Synthesis of colloid of metallic nanoparticles applied as “SERS substrate”.
  • Characterizations of the “SERS substrates” through microscopy, UV-Vis extinction spectroscopy, zeta potential, and dynamic light scattering (DLS).
  • Micro-Raman and surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopies.
  • Computational methods for data analysis.

Deadline for application

13 October 2020.

Application

Interested individuals should send to carlos.constantino@unesp.br the following documents:

  • CV with the list of publications.
  • Two letters of recommendation.
  • Work plan: four pages maximum with title, justification, objectives, and methodology.
