- Electrical (RF and other methods) readout and control of biochemical processes
- Sensors for low concentration/single molecule detection/sequencing of biomolecules
- Energy conversion and storage at nanoscale
- Circuits and systems using molecular devices
- Biocompatible electronic materials and devices
The candidate should hold a PhD, have an interdisciplinary background; prior post-doctoral or higher level experience is valued. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program and to participate in the teaching and service missions of the department. Scientists and engineers who apply should show evidence of excellence, originality and productivity in research and potential for excellent teaching. The candidate would be expected to interact with the Chemistry department in the College of Arts and Science as well as other departments in the College of Engineering and other colleges in the University.
