The California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI) at UC Santa Barbara invites applications for the Elings Prize Postdoctoral Fellowships in experimental nanoscience. Eligible research can be in any area of the physical sciences, biology, or engineering. The fellowships provide a salary of $60,000/yr. for two years, renewable for a third, along with benefits and research funds.
Successful applicants will work with, and receive partial support from, experimentalists on the CNSI faculty; applications must be coordinated with the relevant faculty supervisor(s). Fellowship recipients must have completed a Ph.D. in science or engineering prior to their arrival at CNSI.
Check back in Fall 2013 the next round.
The University of California is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer.
Applicants must indicate in their cover letter the experimental group(s) with whom they would be interested in working; prior contact with potential experimental advisors is mandatory. An alphabetical list of the faculty may be found on the CNSI Faculty page. Collaborative research projects are highly encouraged.
*Finalists for the fellowships will be notified in February, with final selection soon afterwards.
Adam Hauser received his PhD in Physics from The Ohio State University under the direction of Professor Fengyuan Yang, where his thesis focused on the synthesis, characterization, and device fabrication of fully ordered ferromagnetic double perovskite thin films. Parallel work included electronic structure and defect characterization of perovskite thin films, magnetic trapping and transport of biological cells, magnetic characterization of bulk, thin film, and nanowire structures, and fabrication of “designer” thin films and heterostructures. He is now working with Professor Susanne Stemmer towards the development of electric field control of metal-insulator transitions.
