Material Physics Center, San Sebastian, Spain

The group of Prof. Gabriel Molina-Terriza has recently relocated to the Material Physics Center (San Sebastian, Spain). We are looking for highly motivated, talented students looking for exciting opportunities to obtain a PhD in the area of Quantum Nanophotonics. The successful candidates will study both experimentally and theoretically the interaction of quantum states of light with subwavelength structures, such as plasmonic nanoantennae, quantum dots and nanodiamonds. The Quantum Nanophotonics group at MPC is collaborating with renowned international research groups to control the quantum properties of small material particles.  We are also collaborating with industrial partners to make them suitable to become the next generation of biosensors or to perform very precise measurements of electric and magnetic fields.


There are two PhD positions available in this research line. The interested candidates should send an email to gabriel [dot] molina [dot] terriza [at] gmail [dot] com attaching a full CV, a transcript of the Masters grades and a cover letter, indicating in the Subject, “Application for PhD in QNano”. Applications not meeting these requirements won’t be considered.


About San Sebastian: San Sebastian is a small city on the Northern Spanish coast. Close to the border with France, this city enjoys a privileged location for mountain climbing, skiing and surfing. It hosts a diverse and vibrant set of cultural activities, including an international film festival. San Sebastian is an active node for research in bio and nanophotonics with four internationally renowned centres: Biomagune, Nanogune, the Donostia International Physics Center and the Materials Physics Center.
