We invite you to apply for a Postdoctoral Appointee position within our Nanoscience and Technology Division (NST).
The post-doctoral scientist will carry out research involving the development of new deterministic methods for atom scale placement and growth of materials. The research involves designing and fabricating active nanoelectromechanical systems with sub 10 nm dimensions, and the study and simulation of growth processes at the nanoscale. The scientist will also carry out research on the measurement and characterization of the stochasticity in devices used for future information processing.
The candidate will have the opportunity to work with a diverse team of scientists at Argonne and the University of Chicago and have access to equipment and labs at both places. A strong background in nanofabrication and electrical device testing and measurement is needed. Candidate will be expected to develop a broad set of skills as an independent scientist, by the end of the post-doctoral tenure, will be expected to have developed into an expert in the area of materials and device approaches future information processing.
Knowledge, Skills, & Experience
Ability to carry out research on atom scale nanofabrication methods and on stochastic devices for information processing.
Ability to publish results in refereed journals and makes oral presentations at meetings conferences, symposia, and seminars.
Considerable expertise in nanofabrication, device physics, building experimental systems, and understanding semiconductor physics.
Candidate should be interested in applied science and should have an entrepreneurial spirit and interest in potential spinoffs and technology development projects.
Excellent written and oral communications, and data analysis skills.
Strong skills in collaboration and ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
Skills in semiconductor processing, semiconductor device technology, and interest in nanofabrication and technologies for information processing.
A Ph.D. in materials science, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, applied physics or a related field that has been completed within the last three years is required.
