Postdoctoral Position - Nanophotonics & Biofunctional Structures Group
Argonne National Laboratory
February 2, 2018
Government and National Lab
The Nanoscience and Technology Division/Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory has an available postdoctoral position within the Nanophotonics & Biofunctional Structures Group, funded through the Major Facilities Operations for the Center for Nanoscale Materials program. The position is funded for one year and renewable for up to three years (subject to available funding and performance evaluation).
We are seeking independent and creative candidates with an outstanding track record to join our multidisciplinary research team. The selected individual will carry out research in the areas of nanophotonics and quantum optics of nanoscale materials.
A strong background in nanophotonics, confocal laser microscopy, or high-magnetic field spectroscopy is preferred. Additional expertise in clean-room micro-/nano-structure fabrication, low-dimensional materials, and optoelectronic nano-devices is beneficial. Experience in programming languages (including Labview) and photonic numerical simulations using commercial packages or open source codes will be a plus.
Education: A PhD degree completed within the last five years or soon to be completed in Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related discipline.
Interested candidates should send a detailed curriculum vitae including a list of publications and the names and addresses of three professional references through the Argonne web site at http://www.anl.gov/careers for requisition number NST 403600. For additional questions, please contact Dr. Xuedan Ma (email@example.com).

About Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.
Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
At Argonne, we explore the world together in order to build a better one.
