Postdoc position: silicon and germanium nanostructures for nanoelectronics and spintronics

Department of Materials Science, University of Milano Bicocca, Milano Italy

Prof. Marco Fanciulli Group


A post-doctoral  position in experimental semiconductor physics and in particular on the production and characterization of silicon and germanium nanostructures for nanoelectronics and spintronics is available in the group of Prof. Marco Fanciulli at the Department of Materials Science, University of Milano Bicocca, Milano, Italy.

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in physics or equivalent field such as material science or electrical engineering. The candidate should have research expertise at least in one of the following fields: low temperature quantum transport, nano-fabrication, electron spin resonance, ferromagnetic resonance, and electrical characterization (IV, CV, DLTS, IETS,…).

The position is for 2 years with the possibility for further extension.


Applicants should submit a letter of application and a curriculum vitae to Prof. Marco Fanciulli marco.fanciulli@unimib.it.

Available Postdoctoral Research Position

A postdoctoral position in bioinorganic chemistry is available for a skilled and enthusiastic candidate within the Lucas Lab at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA (https://chemistry.vcu.edu/bios/heather-lucas/).  The principal research topic will be centered around the employment of electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR) towards the investigation of cellular metal speciation, metalloproteins, coordination complexes, and associated redox mechanisms.


Minimum qualifications include a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biophysics, or a related discipline.  The ideal candidate will have expertise in the collection and analysis of EPR (or ESR) spectra.  Prior experience with the application of spin probes and/or spin labels is desirable.  The selected candidate will also be provided with opportunities to learn new biochemical and/or synthetic characterization techniques.  Applications from candidates with experience in other advanced methodologies, such as resonance Raman (rR) spectroscopy or laser induced photochemical processes are also encouraged. The appointment is for one year with renewal dependent on performance; shorter contracts will be considered under special circumstances.


To apply, please send your curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your experience, and the names and contact information of two references to hrlucas@vcu.edu.  Candidates available to start by January 2018 or earlier will be given primary consideration; however, a later start date can be negotiated.  The initial contract will be supported through existing NIH grant funds; opportunities will also be provided to the selected candidate to apply for external funding to further aid in their career development.



VCU has a large interdisciplinary research community with well-equipped instrumentation facilities as well as multiple career development opportunities for postdoctoral scholars; more info can be found at http://www.research.vcu.edu/postdoc/index.htm. Richmond, Virginia is also a vibrant, growing place to live with a vast history, great places to eat, wonderful museums, and unique outdoor places to visit.

Post-doctoral research associate

We are looking for post-doctoral associates interested in measurement/instrumentation development of EPR spectroscopy applied to energy and biologically-derived nanomaterials to join us at the Center for Nanoscale Science & Technology (http://cnst.nist.gov) at NIST, a highly interdisciplinary and very well resourced user facility. My laboratory contains a Bruker E580 EPR spectrometer (X-band) as well as a NIST-designed spectrometer (Q-band), both of which are equipped with arbitrary waveform generators for pulse-shaping.  UV and visible CW lasers have been interfaced with the instruments to enable photoexcitation of samples.  Current work is in the areas of spectroelectrochemical EPR spectroscopy development for solid catalyst materials and nanoscale structural measurements of biomaterials, including DNA-based nanomaterials.  The ideal candidate would lead a project that makes use of the CNST nanofabrication capabilities as a means to provide meaningful EPR-based measurements. Typical successful applicants have a strong research background and academic record.  Letters of reference are required.
