PhD Position at IFIMAC-UAM on AFM Simulations


A 4-year predoctoral position is available in Rubén Pérez’s group ( at the Condensed Matter Physics Center (IFIMAC) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM).

Atomic Force Microscopy  (AFM) with functionalized tips is able to disclose the inner structure of molecules with unprecedented resolution. The goal of this project is to achieve a complete chemical identification (structure and composition) of molecules  through the  combination of AFM images and deep learning models trained with AFM theoretical simulations.

The position is funded by the Spanish National Research Plan through the recently open call for predoctoral research contracts. Applications to this call are open till November 11th, 2021.

Applicants are expected to have a master in condensed matter physics, computational chemistry or computer science by the date of signature of the contract (July-September 2022). We are looking for highly motivated applicants that enjoy working in close collaboration with world-leading experimental groups

Applications and requests for further information should be sent to:

 Prof. Rubén Pérez ( )

Applications should include a CV (including grades) and contact information for two references.
