We seek two postdoctoral fellows for a jointly advised project on engineering molecular orientation and birefringence in organic semiconductor materials. Ideal candidates will have experience in combinations of the following areas: organic thin film growth, organic crystallization, vapor/solution/melt phase processing, structural characterization by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, ellipsometry, and electrical and optical measurements. Postdoctoral scholars will be embedded in the Frisbie and Holmes research groups with access to a variety of state-of-the-art instrumentation for growth and characterization of organic materials and devices, including multiple film deposition systems, crystal growth apparatus, electrical and spectroscopic characterization tools, force microscopes, probe stations, a nanoimprinter and an aerosol jet printer. Central facilities including the Minnesota Nano Center and the Materials Characterization Facility provide a vast array of additional instrumentation resources. We seek to fill these two positions immediately. Qualified candidates will have a PhD in materials science, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry, physics, or a related discipline, and should be motivated to work in a stimulating interdisciplinary environment.
Laboratory work 60%; literature review 10%; report writing 10%; manuscript writing 20%
Required Qualifications: PhD in materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or related disciplines.
