FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices of different nature with the goal of developing responsive molecular-based platforms useful for electronic and/or sensor purposes.
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create highly-conjugated molecular-based materials to accommodate them in nano-devices. The postdoctoral fellow must have an extensive knowledge on characterization in solution, in the solid state and on surfaces. The project will require two phases, a first one related to the synthesis of the systems and a second one toward the deposition of the materials on different substrates. The successful candidate should have experience in organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and surface chemistry. Expertise in soft-deposition techniques and analysis of SAMs will be highly regarded.
Our group offers a PhD position, “Design of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Curcuminoid Systems for the creation of 2D sensor materials”, inside the INPhINIT Fellowship Programme of La Caixa. If you are interested to work with us, make a look at:

On Friday, 27 September 2019, most European countries and cities celebrate the European Researchers’ Night: an event in which science professionals bring their work closer to citizens through multiple public events. The goal is to show the diversity of research fields and the impact that science has on our daily lives. Some ICMAB researchers will give talks at CosmoCaixa, we also organize a workshop on nanomedicine and… you will be able to see the dramatised lecture “Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers” in CosmoCaixa! Don’t miss it!
Supramolecular block copolymers incorporating chiral and achiral chromophores for the bottom-up assembly of nanomaterials

Incorporation of chiral and achiral Zn-porphyrins can block copolymers via
axial metal coordination for supramolecular hybrid materials. The supramolecular organization and possible chirality transfer to the hybrid materials
have been studied in solution and solid state.
