Mannix Research Group

Engineering quantum materials at the atomic limit.

Our Research

We seek to systematically elucidate the fundamental structure-property relationships underpinning the growth of 2D materials and their inclusion into van der Waals heterostructures. Greater understanding will allow us to provide a platform for engineering the properties of matter at the atomic scale and offer guidance for emerging applications in quantum information science.

Open Positions

The Mannix Group is continuously seeking motivated graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to contribute to fundamental and applied research in the area of 2D semiconductor and quantum materials.

Check the Open Positions tab for specific project openings.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in materials science, physics, applied physics, engineering, or optics. Prior experience in 2D crystal growth, atomic-scale characterization, or heterostructure fabrication is advantageous but not required.

Interested applicants should send a CV to Professor Andy Mannix (ajmannix [at]

Highly motivated undergraduate researchers at Stanford or admitted to the REU program are also encouraged to contact Prof. Mannix!
