Seeking post-doctoral candidate in electron optics and nanofabrication

Post-doctoral candidate sought with experience suitable to performing research in one or more of the following areas: design of electron optics, numerical simulation of electromagnetic fields and electron trajectories in electric fields, plasmonics, nanofabrication including electron/ion beam lithography, transmission-electron microscopy or holography, electron energy-loss spectroscopy, and quantum optics. The new hire will assist in with the planning and management of the group activities, especially in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, planning and executing research programs, and raising funds for research. The post-doc will have an opportunity to work with a small international team of researchers to develop a new electron microscope based on quantum non-demolition measurements (Kruit et al. Designs for a quantum electron microscope, Ultramicroscopy 2016, 164, 31), as well as the opportunity to collaborate on other ongoing and new projects in our research group. The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Physics, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, Applied Physics, or a related field. The initial emphasis of the work will be on the demonstration of quantum-mechanically coherent electron resonators to demonstrate the proof of concept of the effect.
