There is an opening for a post-doctoral associate position in polymer thin film development at the University of Rochester. The preferred start date is Jan. 1, 2021 but is somewhat flexible. The appointment is for up to two years with yearly continuation contingent upon research progress and project funding. Salary will be commensurate with experience, training and qualifications and will include benefits.
The primary objective of the project is the development of novel initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) processing capabilities to engineer complex thin film structures primarily for optical applications. The project is funded by a large, well-established company headquartered in "Silicon Valley" and will involve significant industry collaboration.
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. with expertise in vacuum deposition technologies. Candidates with significant experience designing and building custom hardware and/or deposition control schemes will be given special consideration. Interested persons should submit a full curriculum vitae and letter describing their background and specific experience. Please email materials to:
