What You Need
Minimum Job Requirements:
Strong background in one or several areas from the following list: colloidal nanocrystal synthesis, fabrication of two-dimensional semiconductors (e.g., transition metal dichalcogenides), ultrafast spectroscopy (transient photoluminescence, transient absorption, four-wave mixing, etc.), single-nanocrystal spectroscopy, magneto-optical spectroscopy, nanocrystal-based devices (light-emitting diodes, lasers, single-photon sources, luminescent solar concentrators, field-effect transistors, photovoltaics, photodetectors, etc.).Demonstrated ability to work productively on multiple tasks with minimal supervision. Demonstrated experience in gathering and interpreting technical data. Excellent written and oral communication skills.
Previous experience with atomic layer deposition (ALD), polymer chemistry, cryogenic equipment, ink-jet printing, clean-room fabrication, and microstructural analysis (TEM, XRD, XPS). Good knowledge ofspectroscopic instrumentation, laser physics, solid-state physics, nonlinear optics, and device physics. Strong computer skills and experience in interfacing with experimental equipment.
Education: A Ph.D. completed within the last five years or soon to be completed is required.
Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks.
New-Employment Drug Test: The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.
Candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships.
