Seeking a Ph.D to support research projects at the University of Notre Dame in nanobiotechnology related to single molecule spectroscopy performed with scanned force or ion conductance microscopy and/or optical tweezers, in conjunction with nanopores and picopores in solid-state membranes, for applications in sequencing DNA, protein and single cell analysis. The successful applicant must have completed a Ph.D. preferably in physics, biophysics, electrical engineering, bio-engineering or a closely related discipline, with a proven capacity for world-class research that is reflected in a publication record. Extensive experience in a subset of the following disciplines is mandatory: atomic force/scanning probe/ion conductance microscopy; free-space laser optics and preferably optical tweezing; transmission electron microscopy; micro- and nanofluidics; molecular and cell biology; semiconductor processing; low-noise, phase-sensitive lock-in measurements; and a facility for programming in MATLAB and LABVIEW, C++, Python and Igor. For more information, candidates should refer to the web site: http://www3.nd.edu/~gtimp/ Interested applicants should send a detailed CV, along with a list of publications, and arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent via email directly to Prof. Gregory Timp (email@example.com). In the cover letter, delineate specifically how your skills can be applied to the work in this lab.
