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.
We seek candidates with a strong expertise in optoelectronic device (Laser, LED, etc) and optical engineering. The research involves experimental study of AR/VR, sensing, imaging, III-V materials engineering, semiconductor devices and their applications.
Our group is seeking candidates with experimental expertise in electrical and optical studies of magnetic materials and devices. Nanofabrication skills and physical depth in spin-dependent electronic behaviors in bulk, surface, interface and/or 2D materials are preferred.
We can support the application of NRC awards.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Qualified applications will be reviewed without regard to race, religion, color, age, sex or national origin.
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.
