B-MRS & ICEM: update on the Corona virus.


logo2021b_400pxOwing to the uncertainties related to the COVID-19, and in order to reduce the risk of hampering the health of our community, the Organizing Committee, the Executive Board of the B-MRS and the IUMRS decided to postpone the 2020 B-MRS and the IUMRS/ICEM meetings.

The conferences are now scheduled to happen from August 29th until September 2nd, 2021, in the city of Iguassu Falls, at the Rafain Convention Center.

All participants will be asked to resubmit their abstracts following a new schedule to be released.

Postdoctoral fellowship in Physics.


Area of interest: Condensed Matter

FAPESP process number: 2017/02317-2

Project title: Synthesis and physical properties characterization of Halide Perovskites

Principal investigator: Prof. Gustavo Dalpian and Dr. Jose Antonio Souza

Institution: Federal University of ABC – Campus Santo André

Deadline for applications: Abril 30th, 2020. Expected starting date: May or June/2020.

Location: Avenida dos Estados, 5001, Bairro Bangu – Santo André, SP

E-mail for applications: (joseantonio.souza@ufabc.edu.br)

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position supported by the State of Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP-Brazil) in experimental condensed matter field. This fellowship is part of broader Thematic project “Interfaces in materials: electronic, magnetic, structural and transport properties” under the coordination by Prof. Adalberto Fazzio (LNNano, CNPEM – Campinas). The postdoctoral supervisor will be Prof. Dr. Jose Antonio Souza at the Federal University of ABC (UFABC), Santo André – São Paulo.

We intend to develop research on the synthesis and physical properties characterization of Halide Perovskites. Applicants are required to have good experimental knowledge on synthesis and/or physical properties characterization of halide perovskites in the form of nanostructures and/or thin films and/or heterostructures and/or quantum dots and/or bulk. The research will be developed at the Federal University of ABC – Campus Santo André.

The opportunity is open to both Brazilian and foreign candidates with a PhD degree, in Brazil or abroad, in areas related to the proposed subject. It is mandatory that the candidate has international experience, as well as publications in the areas related to the project in journals of relevant worldwide impact.

The following documents are required for application:

  1. A letter for the application and showing the interest in the research area;
  2. Curriculum vitae, presenting the candidate’s academic experience and the list of published papers. The curriculum must be submitted in electronic format (pdf, Portable Document Format), where the articles must be identified by their DOI;
  3. Document proving that the candidate holds a PhD degree;

The implementation of the scholarship is conditioned to the approval of the candidate selected by FAPESP. If the decision is approved by FAPESP, the selected candidate will receive a scholarship in the amount of R$ 7,174.80/month and a technical reserve equivalent to 15% of the annual amount of the scholarship, destined to only carry-out expenses directly related to the research activity. More information on the scholarship can be found at: www.fapesp.br/bolsas/pd.

The candidate should send all the documentation to the electronic address cited above under the title “Fellowship PD – Application”. The deadline for submissions is 04/30/2020. Only applications in which all the documents are received by midnight 04/30/2020, Brasília time (UTC-3, Brazilian summer time) will be considered.
