Postdoctoral Research Associate

About the Opportunity

Working on a project focused on making and functionalizing carbon nanotubes, graphene, and other 2D materials based sensors for gas sensing applications. The gas sensors will be implemented in a multi sensing platform project for sensing specific gases (H2, N2, CH4 , NH3, … etc.) in atmospheric and low-pressure environments. Functional groups will be used to enable selectivity and sensitivity of the sensor using these nano materials. Experience needed include but not limited to inorganic/organic synthesis of active molecules, functionalization of CNTs, graphene and other 2D materials, characterization, and implementation into functional devices.


Initiate and conduct experiments in functionalizing carbon nanotubes and 2D nanomaterial based sensors. Train and supervise graduate students in these experimental methods. Assist the supervisor in the interpretation and publication of results and grants. Help in managing the laboratory. Prepare and write research papers, reports, presentations, and grant proposals.


  • PhD degree in chemistry, material science, mechanical engineering, physics or related field.
  • Experience with gas sensing, nanomaterial functionalization, surface characterization techniques, thin film sensors characterization.
  • Knowledge of colloids, electronics and sensors technology is a plus.
  • Publications record and relevant research experience in the field.
  • Motivated to work in a team, with a proactive attitude towards collaboration with industrial partners.
  • Experience in conducting gas sensing experiments.
  • Ability to work both independently and in the team.
  • Motivation for conducting scientific work.
  • Hard working, active person.
  • Experience in working with students.
