PhD positions: call for applications

pubblicato 30 giu 2020, 23:29 da Dario Zappa

Call for PhD Applications XXXVI Cycle, A.Y 2020/2021, is now open.
The Registration online procedure, will close without exception by 14.00 hours (Italian time) on 18 August 2020
PhD Courses will start on November 1st 2020


On-line applications shall be submitted exclusively through the online procedure from the day of publication of this Call on the University's Online Official Notice Board available on https://titulus-unibrescia.cineca.it/albo/

As SENSOR lab we are participating to the Doctorate in Information Engineering: curriculum in “Physical Sciences for Engineering”.

We are interested in highly motivated students that can work on the preparation of nanomaterials (films, nanowires…) using vapour phase (sputtering, evaporation, thermal oxidation,…) or liquid phase (anodization, hydrothermal growth), on their structural, morphological and functional characterization (XRD, NanoRaman, TERS, AFM, SEM, UV-VIS, electrical, I-V, Kelvin probe measurements and gas tests).

If you are interested and you would like to join our lab please write for further information to elisabetta.comini@unibs.it
