PhD position


Laser Excitation and Trapping Techniques for Particle Identification

Universidad de Málaga
Departamento de Química Analítica – UMALASERLAB

A PhD position is available at the UMALASERLAB Group, University of Malaga, Spain. Research is related to the project Laser Excitation and Trapping Techniques for Particle Identification. Finding and understanding what is relevant in single nanoparticle analysis is challenging and needs support from novel characterization techniques. The candidate will develop new optical trapping in combination with laser-based spectroscopy methods for exploratory analysis and visualization of nanoparticles. The UMALASERLAB Group is a highly successful research group, with an important scientific production and a long lasting tradition in laser analytical spectroscopy.

The position is a full-time and fixed-term research position funded by Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad of Spain. Involvement in a PhD programme in chemistry, physics, photonics, lasers, or a related field is needed. An interest in laser spectroscopy is necessary. A strong study record is appreciated. Studies or practical experience in lasers, surface science, imaging techniques, is an advantage. Good English written and spoken communication skills are desired.
