Ph.D. in Physics, Materials Science or Electrical Engineering.
ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS:
Analysis, modeling and simulation of emerging solid-state systems and nanoscale devices. Application of theoretical knowledge of semiconductor materials and device physics to the development of novel solid-state devices that rely upon the electronic and optical properties of low-dimensional electron systems. Development and use of simulation tools for electronic structure, transport modeling, and optical properties of such novel materials and devices. Effectively present ideas and results in technical presentations, write research reports, and collaborate and communicate with team members. Contribute to research reviews, proposals, and technical paper writing.
Design, analysis, and modeling of semiconductor heterostructure systems with particular emphasis on electronic structure, transport, and optical phenomena in nanoelectronic devices. Development and application of software for electronic structure, mesoscopic transport, and optical properties. Close collaboration with experimental materials and device development groups.
Strong background in solid state physics, device physics, optoelectronics, and applied mathematics. Detailed understanding of characterization techniques for semiconductor materials and devices including mesoscopic Hall, optical spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and electrical characterization. Expert knowledge of physical modeling/simulation, numerical methods, and scientific computing.
ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL/MENTAL REQUIREMENTS:
Ability to spend extended periods of time at a computer monitor. Ability and willingness to travel. Excellent written and verbal communications skills, ability to work in a fast paced environment with other team members, excellent problem solving skills.
U.S. citizenship. Possession of an active security clearance or ability to obtain one is beneficial.
