The Northwestern-Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE) at Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory has an available postdoctoral position for the investigation of solid-state semiconductor quantum materials and devices. This joint position is funded for one year and renewable for up to three years (subject to available funding and performance evaluation).
We are seeking highly motivated and independent postdoctoral researchers to join our multidisciplinary research team, with a focus on developing and optical spectroscopic investigation of semiconductor low-dimensional materials and devices. The selected individual will have a strong track record and be responsible for conducting researches related to optical and electrical characterizations of semiconductor materials and their optoelectronic devices. The successful candidate will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities and gain in-depth knowledge of the research frontiers in the fields of quantum optics and quantum materials. He/she will also have the opportunity to be a part of a world-class scientific team and involved in vigorous research programs.
Interested candidates should upload a detailed curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications and the names and addresses of three professional references. For additional questions, please contact Dr. Xuedan Ma (firstname.lastname@example.org). Outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Maria Goeppert Mayer or Enrico Fermi Named Fellowship at Argonne National Laboratory.
Candidate should have completed a doctorate level degree within the last three years or soon to be completed in physics, chemistry, material science, electrical engineering, or a related discipline.
Hands-on experience with low-dimensional semiconductor materials and devices.
Knowledge of semiconductor and optoelectronic device fabrication, analysis and characterization. Experience in optoelectronic device modelling is a plus.
Experience with nanophotonics, optical microcavities and/or surface plasmonics. Familiar with numerical simulation tools such as FDTD and/or COMSOL. Hands-on experience in cleanroom micro-/nano-fabrication is a plus.
Previous experience in conducting low-temperature optical and electrical measurements is desired but not required.
Knowledge of data analysis protocols using programing languages (such as Python, MATLAB etc).
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
Strong skills in collaboration and ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
