Fully Funded PhD Position: Thermal Characterization of 2D Materials

Study Area: Physics, Thermal Engineering, Electrical Engineering

Location: Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM-CSIC), Madrid, Spain


  • Hold a Master’s degree in Physics or Thermal/Electrical Engineering.
  • Strong knowledge of thermal transport, particularly at nano-and micro-scale.
  • Experience with experimental laboratory work, especially in thermal characterization techniques.
  • Critical thinking, analytical skills, and problem-solving abilities.
  • Proactive team player with excellent communication skills.
  • Proficiency in English, both verbal and written.

Description: The ERC-funded project “THERMO2DEAL” seeks a talented PhD student to explore the thermal characterization of 2D materials and their applications in electrochemical devices. Under the supervision of Dr. Muñoz Rojo at ICMM-CSIC, the selected candidate will utilize advanced thermometry techniques to study the thermal properties of 2D materials and thin films. Additionally, they will investigate the behavior of electrochemical devices based on these materials under in operando conditions. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research and expand the understanding of thermal phenomena at the nanoscale.

How to Apply: Interested candidates should submit their applications via email to m.m.rojo@csic.es. Required documents include a CV, BSc and MSc grade lists, publication list (if applicable), documentation of English proficiency, letters of recommendation, and a motivation letter. Interviews will be conducted primarily via video conference.

Last Date: Applications must be submitted by 31st May 2024, 12:00 (Europe/Madrid) for consideration. Don’t miss this chance to join a dynamic research team and embark on a transformative scientific journey. Apply now to be part of the THERMO2DEAL project at ICMM-CSIC, Madrid.
