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
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.
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
