About the Project

This project aims at the fabrication of solid-state nanopores with integrated plasmonic and magneto-optical structures, such as nanoantennas and designs that act as optical tweezers. The design concept of such functional nanopores will also comprise the integration of biomolecules (such as DNA origami) toward hybrid structures. The candidate will mainly work on the design and fabrication of the plasmonic nanostructures, which eventually shall also be extended to large arrays. The designed and prepared samples will be shared within the partners of the DYNAMO project in order to perform translocation control and single molecule detection.

Expected Results: To have reproducible methods to fabricate hybrid plasmonic nanopore arrays for single molecule spectroscopy and to have a robust platform to perform single molecule studies (considering trapping effect and electro-optical detection).

The position will profit from the Planned secondments in the frame of DYNAMO, where the successful candidates will visit the groups of Chirmin Joo at Delft University, Jerome Wenger at CNRS Marseille, Ulrich Keyser at Cambridge and Paolo Vavassori at CIC nanoGUNE.

This open position is financed by Horizon Europe within the DYNAMO Marie Curie Doctoral Network project.


· To apply for a PhD fellowship, candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Master-equivalent degree in physics, nanoscience or engineering.

· Supported researchers must be doctoral candidates, i.e. not already in possession of a doctoral degree at the date of the recruitment.

· Conditions of international mobility of researchers: researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) when taking up the appointment. No restrictions of citizenship apply to the PhD fellowship.

· At the time of selection by the host organisation, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.

· English language: candidates must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in both written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.

Deadline: 25 October 2022
