Electronic devices based on 2D materials and their heterostructures

London Centre for Nanotechnology

Saturday, October 31, 2020 Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

Applications are invited for a fully funded EPSRC DTP PhD Studentship to work with Dr Antonio Lombardo (Electronic and Electrical Engineering and London Centre for Nanotechnology) in the broad area of electronic devices based on 2D materials and their heterostructures.

The studentship will cover Home/EU tuition fees and an annual stipend of no less than £17,285 increasingly annually with inflation. The studentship is funded for 4 years on a full-time basis, or up to 8 years on a part-time basis. Part-time stipend figures are pro-rata.

The successful applicant is expected to start in January 2021, however late starting dates can be considered.

Studentship Details

The project will be focussed on design, simulation and testing of novel electronics devices based on 2D/layered materials (such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides) and their heterostructures. It will involve design, (micro)fabrication and electrical testing of the devices and the experimental work will be complemented by finite-element simulations and machine-learning driven data analysis. The project will target applications be in low power/high frequency electronics or micro and mm-wave biosensing. We welcome application from student having a first-class degree in electronic engineering, physics, biomedical engineering, computer science or closely related disciplines. Preference will be given to candidates having a proven research track record in at least one of the areas relevant for the project.


Suitable candidates for this post will have a first class honours undergraduate degree and/or a post-graduate masters qualification in any of the following disciplines: electronic engineering, physics, biomedical engineering or computer science.

Applicants must be meet the EPSRC eligibility conditions to be eligible for the award – in summary this typically means that applicants must have no restrictions on their right to live in the UK permanently and have been resident in the UK for three years immediately prior to the studentship commencing. EU Citizens who have not been residing in the UK for the past 3 years may be eligible for a fees only award. Please see EPSRC’s website for further details:


Interested candidates should contact Dr Antonio Lombardo () with a covering letter and a full CV (including contact details for at least two academic referees plus marks/grades achieved on current courses if/as applicable). The covering letter should outline your interest in and suitability for, researching the suggested topic.

Successful candidates will be invited to submit a formal application to UCL.
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2020, and interviews will be held in early November 2020 remotely by video conference. The project will commence in January 2021, however delayed starts can be considered. Any inquiries or further information about the studentship should be emailed to supervisor email ().
