The John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values at the University of Notre Dame seeks candidates for a position as a Post-Doctoral Fellow (PDF) or Research Assistant Professor (RAP) in the field of Nanotechnology Ethics and Policy. The term of the position is three years. The RAP position is renewable contingent on research productivity and grant-writing ability.

The Reilly Center collaborates with The Notre Dame Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NDnano, to examine the ethical and policy aspects of cutting-edge research in nanotechnology. The PDF or RAP will be an active participant in the NDnano program along with other nanotechnology initiatives at Notre Dame. She or he will conduct both individual research collaborative research with the NDnano investigators in accordance with her or his interests and expertise. She or he will also actively participate in programs and events sponsored by the Reilly Center in nanotechnology ethics and policy. During the first year there will be no teaching requirement or expectation. After the first year the PDF or RAP may be expected to teach a maximum of one course per semester, depending on her or his research agenda and grant activity.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. or other terminal degree in a relevant field and a publication record in ethics or policy issues in nanotechnology or other new and emerging technologies (RAP) or promise of such (PDF). Salaries for both positions are competitive.

Applications for this position will be considered beginning Monday, June 8, and the position will remain open until it is filled. Applicants should send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to Gerald McKenny, Director, John J. Reilly Center for Science, Technology, and Values, 309 O'Shaughnessy Hall, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN 46556 or electronically to

The University of Notre Dame is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from candidates of underrepresented groups.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
