|Job Title||Research Associate in Molecular Spintronics|
|Department/Division/Faculty||Department of Chemistry/Faculty of Natural Sciences|
Salary: £32,100 – £40,720 per annum (Maximum salary on appointment: £32,930)
Fixed-term appointment for 12 months in the first instance
A post of Research Associate in Molecular Spintronics is currently available within the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College, London. The successful candidate will join an inter-disciplinary team working on the synthesis of molecular spintronic target molecules, their structural characterization, and experimental studies on single-molecule charge transport and spintronics. The post is part of a Leverhulme Trust-funded project involving the Albrecht and Long research groups at Imperial College/Department of Chemistry, as well as the Fisher and Hirjibehedin groups at UCL/London Centre for Nanotechnology.
This position will involve predominantly the synthesis of multi-centre transition metal complexes, their structural, electrochemical and optical characterization, as well as single-molecule charge transport studies at room temperature and in condensed matter environments (EC-STM and chip-based nanojunctions).
The successful candidate will have a PhD in bioorganic, inorganic or synthetic chemistry or an equivalent level of professional qualifications and/or experience. The successful candidate should also have prior experience in charge transport measurements, be familiar with state of the art metal-organic synthetic procedures and techniques, particularly in oxygen-free environments. Prior experience in these areas coupled with a track record in electrochemical scanning probe microscopy are required (e.g. EC-STM). An ability to work in a team and to write succinctly for publication is also required.
