We are looking to fill a research scientist position in a NSF supported collaborative project between Nanomaterials Laboratory SDSU, SPM division of Agilent and Argonne National Laboratory.
The candidate will be responsible for developing a novel photoactive scanning probe microscopy tool. The candidate is expected to be hands-on with high-precision instrumentation and scanning probe microscopy. He will spend 50% time to develop advanced photovoltaic materials with nanoscale
functionality.

Required qualifications:

Strong experience in scanning probe microscopy (including: scanning kelvin probe force microscopy, current-sensing AFM, scanning near-field optical microscopy). Experience in integrating optical/laser tools with scanning
probe methods is highly desired.

Desired qualifications
1. Scanning probe microscopy and ultrafast spectroscopy of polymer blends
and photoactive materials.
2. Organic and hybrid solar cell fabrication and characterization
3. SPM based electrical/optoelectronic characterization of materials
4. SNOM/NSOM spectroscopy
5. Surface photovoltage measurements using SPM tools.

Application Process: E-mail CV with a 1 or 2-page write-up explaining how you can contribute to this project. Application materials will be reviewed by the search committee on weekly basis and short listed candidates will go
though phone/on-site interview.

Funding: NSF funding is anticipated for 2 years. Annual contract subject to renewal upon satisfactory progress. Salary depends on qualifications and relavent experience. This position is being announced in anticipation of
future funding.

The position is available immediately.

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
