The Naval Research Laboratory is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Materials and Systems Branch of the Materials Science and Technology Division. We are looking for candidates who will perform research in the following area:
- Experimental fabrication and characterization of electrical, optical, mechanical and thermal properties of 2D Materials heterostructures
This position requires a highly motivated candidate with Ph.D. degree in one or more of the following areas: material science, solid-state physics, plasma physics, chemical engineering or electrical engineering. For this position, experience in one or more of the following is desirable: semiconductor processing, XPS, AFM and associated scanning probe measurements, optical spectroscopy, SEM, Hall measurements, CV, 2D Material growth, and ALD. The position will focus on heterostructure production using two dimensional materials such as graphene, boron nitride, molybdenum disulfide, phosphorene. The candidate will fabricate device structures (field effect transistors, Hall bars, antennas etc.) to evaluate the electrical, optical, mechanical and thermal properties of the 2D systems and their interactions with the environment and their substrates. This position is part of a larger, team-oriented group focused on 2-D material growth, sensing, metamaterials and plasmonics, and associated characterization and device structures of various types. There will be significant opportunities for cross-fertilization with these programs both inside and outside of NRL.
The Postdoctoral Fellow positions are administered by the American Society of Engineering Education or the National Research Council (NRC). See NRC research opportunity (RO) # 64.15.85.B8464 for more information. The current base stipend is $77,490 and includes benefits such as health insurance, conference and relocation allowance.
