Job Openings

Graduate Students

We seek highly motivated students with the solid scientific strength in one of the following areas: engineering, physics, chemistry, materials science and biological sciences. Both graduate research assistantships and university fellowships are available.

Postdoctoral Candidates

Optoelectronics and optical engineering

We seek candidates with a strong expertise in:

  • Optoelectronic device (Laser, LED, etc): III-V materials engineering, semiconductor device physics
  • Optical engineering: AR/VR, sensing
  • Imaging system: structured illumination microscopy, time-reversal techniques, stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy, stimulated emission depletion microscopy, superlens/hyperlens imaging.

Metamaterials and plasmonics

An essential research objective in our group is focused on the physics of metamaterials and plasmonic structures. The research involves theoretical and experimental study of the physics underlying metamaterials and other plasmonic-based devices. We especially seek for creative postdocs with strong physics background in solid state physics, nonlinear photonics, quantum optics or acoustics.

2D material physics and devices

Our group is exploring physics and device applications of low dimensional materials such as MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, BN, etc. We seek candidates with a strong experimental expertise with physical depth in 2D materials science and technology.

Applicants should send a full CV via email to Professor Zhang (xzhang@me.berkeley.edu).

Fellowships and Funding

Professor Zhang is an LBNL faculty scientist who can sponsor awards from the NRC.

National Research Council of the National Academies

The National Research Council of the National Academies will offer competitive awards in 2009 for independent postdoctoral and senior scientific research to be conducted in residence at participating U.S. government laboratories. Opportunities for research are in all areas of science and engineering and many are open to non-US as well as US citizens. Awardees design their own projects to be compatible with the overall interests of the sponsoring laboratory. Annual stipends for recent Ph.D. recipients range from $41,000 - $70,000 depending upon sponsoring laboratory and are appropriately higher for additional experience. Application deadlines are February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1. Applicants must initiate dialogue with prospective advisors at the lab as early as possible, before their anticipated application date. Applications must be submitted online directly to the NRC. Detailed program information, including instructions on how to apply online, is available on the NRC Web site, here . Questions should be directed to the National Research Council at 202-334-2760 (phone) or rap@nas.edu. Qualified applications will be reviewed without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex or national origin.

Graduate Research Assistantship and Postdoctoral Fellowship Available at UC Berkeley

Additionally, there are a number of positions are open for Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the Nano-scale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC) at UC Berkeley.

Also see the Miller Research Fellowship, UC Berkeley Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship, and the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship.
