Nokia Research Center (NRC) is chartered with exploring new frontiers for mobility, solving scientific challenges to transform the converging Internet and communications industries. Our teams are strategically located worldwide to collaborate with leading universities and research institutes in the mode of Open Innovation. NRC has been exploring and developing mobile technologies for over 20 years. Our current research focuses on the areas of rich context modeling, new user interfaces, high performance mobile platforms, and cognitive radio.
NRC Eurolab in Cambridge, UK has a particular focus on nanotechnology research and participates in a successful university research collaboration. Nokia’s Cambridge laboratory was founded in 2007 and moved to new premises with cutting-edge experimental facilities in spring 2010.
The Enabling Morph research group investigates nanotechnologies applicable to the next-generation of high performance mobile devices, as exemplified by the Morph concept (http://www.nokia.com/about-nokia/research/demos/the-morph-concept). Our aim is to create intellectual property, high quality scientific publications as well as concrete prototypes and demonstrators.
We have vacancies for three research interns with expertise in materials science and nanotechnology who will contribute to our research programmes in the areas of (i) self-assembled hierarchical nanostructures for multifunctional surfaces, (ii) stretchable electronics and (iii) energy storage and harvesting.
The successful candidates will have a knowledge of, and backgrounds in, nanostructured multifunctional materials together with methods for their fabrication and characterisation. They will also be experienced with the use of such nanomaterials in device applications and structures.
Candidates should have practical experience of a range of materials deposition and growth techniques such as sputtering, thermal evaporation, CVD, ALD, electrochemical deposition and polymer templating. Expertise with characterisation techniques such as scanning probe microscopies (AFM), electron microscopies including SEM and EDX and optical techniques including PL, FTIR and UV-Vis/Raman spectroscopies are an advantage, as is cleanroom experience.
It is intended that the interns will carry out their own personal research work whilst coordinating and working closely with university researchers and other members of the Nokia team to research and develop our technologies.
The candidates will have a strong scientific background, either having recently completed an M.Sc, or are about to complete/have recently completed a Ph.D. in a relevant subject (Physics, Materials Science, Engineering or Chemistry).
