PhD in “Flexible nanowire light emitting diodes” - CHREA - Sophia Antipolis (France)

Profile: The doctoral fellow will be mostly involved in the epitaxial growth using MOCVD technique. He will also participate to the processing in clean room environments and the optical characterization of the fabricated devices.
The candidate should have a strong background in condensed matter physics and/or materials science. A proven ability to conduct experimental work and willingness to learn different techniques are required (growth, clean room processing and characterization). The candidate should also be prepared to spend time in different laboratories in order to benefit from their expertise. Good communication skills and motivation for team work are thus needed.

Working place: The candidate will do his work mainly at CRHEA (, located in the technological hub of Sophia-Antipolis on the French Côte d’Azur with some stays (6 months approximately) at CEA/IRIG in Grenoble ( for the graphene-assisted growth.
Most of the processing will be performed at Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Palaiseau close to Paris (
Specific funding will be allocated for travel between the different places. The PhD can start in September 2020.

Advisors: The PhD will be supervised by Jesus Zuniga Perez and co-supervised by Blandine Alloing ( from CRHEA
