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. Gustavo Dalpian in collaboration with 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. 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;
  2. Document proving that the candidate holds a PhD degree;
  3. At least two recommendation letters, in English, which should be sent directly to the email with the subject “Fellowship PD – Recommendation Letter”.

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 02/01/18. Only applications in which all the documents (including recommendation letters) are received by midnight 02/01/2018, Brasília time (UTC-3, Brazilian summer time) will be considered.
