Position Details

Postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science for developing diamond vacuum microelectronic devices and advanced energy storage devices.

Electrical Engineering & Computer Science

The Postdoctoral Research Scholar at Vanderbilt Diamond/Carbon Microelectronics laboratory will be working with faculty to develop nanodiamond vacuum field emission devices and advanced energy storage devices such as supercapacitor and lithium-ion batteries. The candidate will be responsible for designing and implementing experiments as well as analyzing the results. He/she should have strong technical background and excellent problem solving skills. In addition, he/she must be proficient in technical writing involving reports, scientific journal articles and experimental summaries.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with the following experience:
• Work in a Class 1000 Clean Room environment.
• Operate and maintain CVD equipment (Hot-Filament, Microwave Plasma and tube-furnace) for synthesis of diamond and carbon nanotubes.
• DC and RF sputtering techniques for deposition of thin-films.
• Wet processing in a chemical hood.
• Silicon microfabrication technology including photolithography using mask aligner, spin-coating, thermal oxidation, wet and dry etching.
• Material Analysis- Scanning Electron Microscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy.
• Electrical device characterization under high vacuum, operate data-acquisition software and perform device modeling.
• Synthesis of nano-architectured materials for energy storage.
• Electrochemical characterization of energy storage devices.

Please contact Professor W. P. Kang for more information. Interested candidates are encouraged to respond to this job-opening along with a copy of their recent curriculum-vitae.
