Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit

The mission of the Nanoscience department is to prepare students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds to conduct basic and advanced research in Nanoscience in industrial, governmental, or academic settings. Within this context, the Nanoscience Department provides a graduate level trans-disciplinary educational and discovery research experience in the nanosciences, sustainable nanosystems, innovation, and community engaged outreach. It also works collaboratively with the Nanoengineering Department to achieve an integrated foundational research program in emerging high impact areas. Scientists in this new and emerging field seek to comprehend, gather and organize knowledge of the nanoworld through careful observations and creative, visionary thinking. Nanoscience is a multidisciplinary field bringing together vast knowledge from mathematics and all the core sciences: physics, biology, chemistry, and from their derivatives such as material science, pharmacology, neurochemistry, ecology, etc. Consequently, nanoscientists are scientists engaging in an organized activity of manipulation of materials at atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scales that are versatile and fluent in mathematics and the core sciences with a particular world view based on the synergy of these core sciences and on their derived applications to the macro world. Nanoscience is a new way of thinking about old things.

Position Summary

The Department of Nanoscience is seeking to hire a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Semiconductor Synthetic Biology (SemiSynBio). The goal of SemiSynBio is to develop the next-generation information storage technologies that are driven by biological principles and use biomaterials in the fabrication of high capacity long-term storage devices that are more efficient than the current system. This postdoctoral fellowship position is part of an NSF funded project that focuses on the development of a novel sustainable and scalable DNA-based digital data storage system in which the information bits will be written, stored, and read through direct mutation of DNA. The goal of JSNN is to serve underrepresented cohorts of students through education, economic development, and engagement of the central North Carolina Piedmont Triad regions.
