PhD and Postdoc Positions at the Casimir Research School, Netherlands


PhD position on room-temperature single-molecule transistors: The project involves transport measurements through a variety of (bio-) molecules, while being in solution (including water). Target molecules will include molecular switches, DNA, amino acids & proteins.

Project Description: Selected candidate will measure their transport properties at room temperatures; fabrication of devices & data analysis will be important aspects of the work.

Demonstrating molecular functionality (like, conductance changes while modifying the environment by i.e. chemical means or by shining light on the molecules). Along with, understanding the transport mechanisms are the main aims of this project.

PhD and a two (02) year Postdoctoral position on thermoelectric effects in single-molecule devices: These fellowships are part of a collaborative European project and is about single-molecule thermoelectric devices.

Project Description: The idea is that the ability to exploit quantum interference in molecules will enable new thermoelectric materials and devices so that energy can be scavenged with unprecedented efficiency.

The work will involve fabrication of the devices in the state-of-the art clean room at Delft and performing measurements in a variety of different set-ups to gain as much knowledge as possible.

Application Procedure: Eligible Excellent candidates with a background in physics or nanoscience are invited to send their applications to Prof. Dr. Herre van der Zant (
