The Nanoscience and Technology (NST) Division at Argonne National Laboratory hosts the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a multidisciplinary user facility with expertise in the characterization, fabrication, synthesis and theory of nanoscale materials, in addition to performing programmatic science activities. NST research ranges from fundamental to use-inspired nanoscience with connections to industry and the Argonne applied science divisions. The division seeks to bring together scientists and engineers from national laboratories, industry, and academia to meet nanoscience and nanotechnology challenges of the present and future.
We seek a staff scientist with expertise nanotechnology, nanophotonics, and nanofabrication to join the Nanofabrication & Devices Group in the Nanoscience and Technology Division at Argonne.
The staff scientist is expected to conduct basic research in materials, nanoscale devices and nanofabrication technology to advance science in the areas including, but not limited to, nanotechnology, nanophotonics, and nanofabrication. He or she will be responsible for developing and implementing nanofabrication technology using focused ion beam (FIB) in support of the CNM user community in basic research. Experience and knowledge of the mechanical, electrical, and optical properties of materials and its implementation to the design, simulation, fabrication and testing of nanostructures and nan-scale devices is helpful. The staff scientist is also expected to have a strong commitment towards building up a robust set of users and collaborators for CNM’s facilities. The position offers considerable research freedom and the ability to develop a long-term scientific research program.
A Ph.D. in the physical sciences, with good knowledge of additional areas of materials science, chemistry, and/or physics. Postdoctoral research experience is desirable.
