Description

The Department of Physics at The Pennsylvania State University is seeking to fill one postdoctoral scholar position in Condensed Matter Physics. The successful candidate will be involved in the doping of two dimensional (2D) materials and the fabrication of vertical and horizontal hetero-interfaces of 2D materials, and the Raman spectroscopy characterization using enhanced. In addition, the candidate should be knowledgeable in identifying single molecules on the surface of 2D materials via Raman enhancement using monolayers of graphene, h-BN and transition metal dichalcogenides. The ideal candidate should have a deep understanding of Raman spectrometers, optics, condensed matter and materials physics. Applicant requirements include a Ph.D. in Physics. Applications must be submitted electronically at psu.jobs and include a cover letter, CV and statement of research interests. Applicants should arrange for three reference letters to be submitted to physicsapply@psu.edu indicating the appropriate job number in the subject line. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire, with possibility of re-funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable candidate is found.
