Join us

If you are looking for opportunities for doing research please feel free to send an email to luisfoa at gmail dot com explaining your motivation to join us. Above all I value curiosity, motivation and will to work hard to exceed your own expectations. If you are considering coming for a postdoc, there may be several options depending on your country of origin. For example, applicants based in Germany may apply for the prestigious Feodor Lynen fellowships of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. CONICYT offers competitive postdoctoral fellowships including funding for travel, relocation and small equipment. The overall package amounts up to circa 50k USD per year for up to 3 years. There is one yearly call around June-August each year but there is an internal earlier screening of potential candidates. 

Current projects where you could join include topics such as transport in van der Waals heterostructures, time-dependent potentials, topological insulators and Weyl semimetals. Positions for Master and undergraduate students are filled at the moment, though there might still be vacancies for experimental projects.
