  • Neutron science applied to the study of polymer and macromolecular systems.
  • Neutron science applied to the study of materials for energy.
  • Neutron science applied to the study of functional materials.
  • Neutron science applied to the study of biologic systems and bio-inspired materials.
  • Synthesis of fluorescent sensors for detection of processes associated with particle physics.
  • Neutron and neutrino sciences applied to the study of host-guest interactions in gas media.
  • Neutron and neutrino  sciences applied to the study of functional materials and surfaces.
  • Neutron and neutrino sciences applied to the study of biological systems and fluorescent bio-inspired materials.

We are looking for candidates with research experience in any of the above research fields. Applications from women are especially welcomed.

Ikerbasque is offering permanent research positions, fully funded by Ikerbasque, in the following two categories:

  • Research Associates: Established researchers, with over 8 years of postdoctoral experience.
