The Laboratory for Surface Modification (LSM) at Rutgers University invites applications for postdoctoral researcher position in surface/thin film analysis. The emphasis is on the use of X-ray photoemission spectroscopy (XPS) and ion beam techniques to characterize the surface and near surface properties of a variety of systems including low dimensional, quantum, and other advanced materials.
Minimum Education and Experience:
A Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials science or a related field, and demonstrated experience with either photoemission spectroscopy and/or ion beam analysis, including ultrahigh vacuum techniques. The successful candidate will report to the LSM Director and be responsible for the operation of the LSM's XPS and Ion Beam Facilities, will interact and collaborate with researchers across many departments at Rutgers as well as from other institutions, and is expected to participate in and initiate programs employing these probes in new and exciting directions.
