University College London – UCL London Centre for Nanotechnology
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £31,778 – £38,441 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
The London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher to establish molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) of oxide nanowires and oxide nanowire heterostructures.
A new research MBE system is on order and is due for delivery to the London Centre for Nanotechnology in Spring 2011. The postholder will be involved in the commissioning of this MBE system and in developing growth protocols for ZnO thin films and ZnO nanowires. The ultimate goal of the project is to grow heterostructure nanowires (including ZnO-ZnMnO and ZnO-ZnMgO).
The post is funded by a major EPSRC grant held by Dr. Paul Warburton. The appointment is initially for a period of two years.
The successful applicant will have a higher degree qualification (PhD) or equivalent in experimental physics or experimental materials science or experimental electrical engineering. He/She will also have first-hand experience with ultra-high vacuum equipment, a track record of publication in high-impact scientific journals and a demonstrated ability for innovation and original research.
