Postdoctoral Fellow – Plasmonic and Soft Conducting Materials for Biosensing
- Cornell University
- Location: Ithaca, NY
- Job Number: 7067112
- Posting Date: Jun 20, 2020
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionA postdoc position is immediately available to develop plasmonic and soft conducting materials for biosensing. The Yu laboratory in the Robert Fedrick Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Cornell University uses an integrated computational and experimental approach to develop plasmonic and semiconducting materials for biosensing and optoelectronic applications (https://www.cheme.cornell.edu/faculty-directory/qiuming-yu). The primary goal of this postdoc fellowship is to develop novel plasmonic nanostructures and/or soft conducting materials for optic and/or organic transistor biosensors.
Interested applicants must hold a PhD in engineering (chemical, biomedical, materials, electrical or similar) or science (chemistry, physics, biochemistry or similar) with expertise in some of the following areas: meta and plasmonic materials, monomer and polymer synthesis, surface plasmon resonance biosensor, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, organic electrochemical transistors, organic field-effect transistors, microfluidics, functionalization and surface chemistry, nanofabrication, electromagnetic simulations, point-of-care diagnostics, and remote, flexible or disposable biosensors.
Applicants should be highly motivated, creative, independent, cooperative and be interested in a multi-disciplinary approach involving physics, chemistry, engineering, biotechnology, and biomedicine. In addition, applicants must have strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to design, lead and perform projects.
Please send a cover letter with research interest and curriculum vitae to Dr. Qiuming Yu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
