Postdoctoral Research Associate - Electronic Nanomaterials (6492) — The Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is currently soliciting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electronic Nanomaterials group.The research involves fabrication of nanostructured materials with optical and electronic properties designed for efficient photovoltaic energy conversion. In particular, this project explores strategies for using the plasmonic and photonics properties of metals in new solar cell device architectures. This project is laboratory-intensive; much of the work involves device fabrication, material characterization, and measurements of device electrical and optical properties.The qualified candidate will have a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline (Physics, Electrical Engineering, or Materials Science), and significant experience with thin-film fabrication of nanostructured materials and devices. Most importantly, candidates must have a solid foundation in optical and electrical device measurement, and display a strong knowledge of condensed matter physics in order to understand and interpret such measurements. Expertise in characterization and analysis of nanometer-scale materials, including electron microscopy, is also important. The successful applicant will demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively with other scientists within broadly defined research directions.Under the direction of C. Black, Center for Functional Nanomaterials.BNL policy states that research associate appointments may be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years. BNL is an equal opportunity employer committed to ensuring that all qualified applicants receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or protected veteran status.
