Postdoc: Nanomechanics, Nanoplasmonics – ISAS TWien

Postdoc in Nanomechanics and Nanoplasmonics at the Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems (ISAS) at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien).


The Institute of Sensor and Actuator Systems (ISAS) at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) has available a postdoctoral position for three years, to work on a project on nanoplasmomechanical sensing.

This project will be hosted at the Micro and Nanosensors Group (MNS). The group conducts fundamental research of nanomechanical resonators. The study includes extraordinary properties of nanomechanical resonators and explored their use for a broad field of applications, such as single-molecule imaging and analysis, protein mass spectrometry, infrared/THz photodetection, and study of surface physics.

Involved Responsibilities and tasks

The successful candidates will be part of a team dedicated to the design and fundamental study of novel hybrid nanomechanical-nanoplasmonic systems for sensing applications.
Some of the tasks involved are:

  1. experimental planning, design, micro/nanofabrication, and implementation,
  2. optimization of optical measurement setup,
  3. theoretical and numerical simulation and analysis,
  4. support of teaching activities,
  5. and supervision of student projects.

Required Qualifications

  1. Have a PhD degree (or equivalent)
  2. Strong background in experimental micro- and nanomechanics with additional experience in optics, nanophotonics, or optomechanics.
  3. The candidate should have gained experience in teaching and supervision of student projects.
  4. Candidate to be an independent, motivated, and diligent personality who with his/her own ideas can push the activities in our group forward.
  5. Good communication and writing skills (in English).
