The NanoScience Technology Center (NSTC) at the University of Central Florida (UCF) invites applications for multiple tenure-track or tenured faculty positions at all levels (assistant, associate, or full professor) in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with emphasis on scalable nanomanufacturing (0-3D, with special emphasis on growth), nanomaterials, biological and environmental nanosensors, nano-environmental health and safety, or nano-biotechnology. Strong candidates with research programs in other emerging nanotechnology areas will also be considered.
NSTC consists of 18 faculty (including NSF & NIH CAREER, KO1, ONR YIP, and DARPA YIA award recipients) and over 120 graduate students, postdoctoral associates and research staff members. Collaboration with researchers in academic departments, schools and centers, including the College of Medicine, College of Optics and Photonics and Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL), Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center (AMPAC), and Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) is encouraged and supported. Numerous collaboration opportunities are available with external organizations and research centers located within a few miles of the UCF campus, including Siemens Energy, Lockheed Martin, Florida Hospital, Orlando Regional Medical Center, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, Nemours Children Hospital, the Veterans Health Administration, and the Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center.
UCF has over 60,000 students and is a comprehensive research and education institute. Located in Orlando, UCF is at the center of the Florida High Tech Corridor. The corridor has an excellent industrial base that includes software, defense, space, simulation and training, and a world-renowned entertainment industry.
Review of applications will begin on November 17, 2014 and continue until the positions are filled.
