Francisco J. Terán obtained his PhD in Physics (November 2001) at Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble (France) under supervision of Prof. Marek Potemski. Then, Dr. Teran realized different postdoctoral stays at the Quantum Transport group at the University of Nothingham working with Prof. Laurence Eaves, back to Grenoble High Magnetic Field Lab CNRS-MPI/FKF, SemicUAM group at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid working with Prof. José Manuel Calleja (Juan de la Cierva fellow). On March 2007, Dr. Teran joined IK4-Gaiker Technological Center as Senior researcher (2008 Torres Quevedo fellowship). On April 2009, Dr. Terán joined IMDEA Nanociencia (2012-2017 as a Ramón y Cajal fellowship) to strength the research line on magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. From 2010 to 2013, Dr. Teran led the AFM Service. Since 2012, Dr. Teran is leading the Hyperthermia Lab and since 2014 the Advanced Instrumentation Service.
