The Florida State University has made major investments in faculty and instrumentation in the area of the growth, processing and characterization of advanced materials. We are seeking a technical staff person responsible for maintaining and managing high-level instrumentation associated with the overall materials effort. The training of students, postdocs, visitors and users of the equipment and instrumentation is also part of the responsibility. Although the bulk of the instrumentation is located at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, additional affiliated laboratories and facilities are in the College of Engineering in close proximity. At present approximately 15 FSU faculty are involved in the advanced materials effort.
Ph.D in Engineering, Physics, Materials Science, or Chemistry. Applicants at the MS or BS levels with a significant background in the area of scientific instrumentation will be considered. Competence and experience in one or more of the following areas: materials characterization including x-ray diffraction, microscopy techniques (AFM, STM, SEM, TEM) and electronic measurements (SQUID, PPMS, MPMS); materials processing including lithography (optical & e-beam), deposition (thermal/e-beam evaporation, sputtering) and etching (RIE, ion milling); and materials synthesis including crystal growth (solid state, vapor transport), nanowires (CVD) and thin films (PLD, MBE).
