Call for candidates interested in applying for an MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship in nanomaterial research

We are searching for Ph.D. holders (up to 8 years of from the date of award), who have not resided in the Czech Republic for more than 12 months during last 3 years at the time of the deadline (11 Sep 2024).

Researchers in the following nanomaterial research areas are particularly welcome:

  • a) New and emerging nanomaterials.
  • b) Nanomaterials synthesis.
  • c) Electron-beam techniques in nanomaterials.
  • d) In-situ characterization and technology.
  • e) Near atom and atom level precision manufacturing.
  • f) Machine learning in the context of nanomaterials fabrication/discovery.
  • g) 3D nanoscale construction

Are you an ambitious researcher with a passion for pushing the boundaries of materials science? The Electron Beam Precision Manufacturing (EBEAM) Centre, an ERA Chair group headed by Prof. Mark H. Rümmeli, is on the lookout for talented individuals to join us as MSCA Fellows. Seize the opportunity to redefine the possibilities of nanomaterials synthesis!

Required expertise:

  • Ph.D. in Materials Science, Nanotechnology, or a related field.
  • Specialized Expertise: Demonstrated hands-on experience in SEM use as well as nanomaterials (in particular 2D) materials synthesis.
  • Visionary Leadership: Proven ability to lead and inspire researchers towards groundbreaking discoveries.

Activity description/Position Overview:

As a key member of the EBEAM Centre, you will contribute to groundbreaking research in the synthesis of 2D materials using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) driven by the electron beam with additional drivers such as heat and local gas injection. This is not conventional synthesis – it’s a chance to pioneer new approaches and be at the forefront of precision manufacturing at or near the atomic level.

Key Responsibilities:

  • 2D Materials Synthesis: Spearhead research in the synthesis of 2D materials using SEM-driven techniques.
  • Electron Beam Precision: Drive advancements in precision manufacturing at the nanoscale and toward the atomic level, pushing the boundaries of current technology.
  • Innovative Leadership: Train and mentor a dynamic team of researchers, fostering innovation and collaboration.

Why Join EBEAM Centre?

  • Pioneer Nanotechnology: Lead the charge in redefining nanomaterials synthesis using SEM techniques.
  • International Collaboration: Work alongside a diverse team of global experts, driving innovation and excellence.
  • Cutting-edge Facilities: Access cutting-edge facilities to support your groundbreaking research.
  • Innovate for the Future: Shape the future of precision manufacturing and materials science.

If you are ready to embark on a transformative journey, pushing the boundaries of conventional synthesis and driving innovation in the field of 2D materials, we invite you to apply. Be part of the EBEAM Centre’s vision and make history in the realm of nanotechnology.

Alternative funding in the Czech Republic

The proposals which obtain a score of 70% or above in the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships call under Horizon Europe but are not proposed for funding under MSCA due to the lack of budget, are eligible for funding under ERA Fellowships or under the Operational Programme John Amos Comenius (2021- 2027).

If the project will be approved, we offer

Full time equivalent:1,0 
Type of job contract:fixed-term employment contract with the possibility of extension
Anticipated commencement:June 1st 2025 onward 

The EBEAM Centre is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion. We encourage applications from candidates of all backgrounds and experiences. The working language is English.

Your personal data will be processed only to the extent necessary for the execution of the selection procedure in accordance with EU Regulation 2016/679.

For inquiries or to submit your CV and introductory letter, please reach out to Prof. Mark H. Rümmeli at and Barbora Dvořáková at We look forward to hearing from you and exploring the exciting possibilities of joining the EBEAM Centre’s innovative team.

In the subject of the email, please state “Open Call for the MSCA, Postdoctoral Fellowships 2024”.
