Pay Grade/Pay Range: Non Classified - Grade NA
Department/Organization: 204461 - Physics
Normal Work Schedule: Monday - Friday 8:00am to 4:45pm
Job Summary: Under the direction of a senior faculty member who serves as a mentor for the postdoctoral appointee, The Postdoctoral Fellow provides for an internship and continuation of scholarly activity and research after achieving the Ph.D. or other doctoral degree.
Additional Department Summary: We are looking for an active, self-motivated researcher with a background in tip-enhanced Raman and Photoluminescence spectroscopies of polymeric and porphyrinic structures. It is highly desirable that the researcher has experience with time- and polarization-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy. The successful candidate will lead the upgrade and operation of existing tip-enhanced spectroscopy setups. The successful candidate will lead the acquisition and analysis of sub-wavelength spectra of isolated chains and isolated aggregates in order to unveil the importance of short- and long-range Coulombic interactions in formation/stability of aggregates and aggregate hybrids.
Required Department Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in Physics.
Applicants should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), statement of purpose and include at least two references in the reference section of the application. Applicants should contact Dr. Paulo Araujo (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions regarding this position.
Skills and Knowledge: Background in optics (focus on tip-enhanced spectroscopy), soft- and condensed-matter physics (focus on polymeric and porphyrinic structures).
Preferred Qualifications: Experience in time- and polarization resolved spectroscopies. Previous Post-doc experience in tip-enhanced Raman and Photoluminescence spectroscopy is highly desired.
Background Investigation Statement: Prior to hiring, the final candidate(s) must successfully pass a pre-employment background investigation and information obtained from social media and other internet sources. A prior conviction reported as a result of the background investigation DOES NOT automatically disqualify a candidate from consideration for this position. A candidate with a prior conviction or negative behavioral red flags will receive an individualized review of the prior conviction or negative behavioral red flags before a hiring decision is made.
