Michel de Jong (1970) obtained his PhD degree from Eindhoven University of Technology in 2000, held positions as postdoctoral fellow and Assistant Professor at Linköping University (2000-2007), and joined the group NanoElectronics at MESA+ in September 2007 as Assistant Professor of Spintronics. He has a multidisciplinary background in surface science, organic electronics and spintronics. In 2008 he was awarded the NWO VIDI grant in the domain of Technical Sciences, and he received the ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) in 2011. He currently has over 60 publications in print.
