Job Details

Title of Research Opportunity: Chlorination studies on 2D material doping for electronic applications

A joint post-doctoral fellowship is available immediately for talented and motivated post-doctoral candidates with experience in 2-D materials, nanofabrication and device characterization. Familiarity with x-ray spectroscopy techniques is a plus. The candidate will be primarily located at the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), 2800 Powder Mill Road, Adelphi, MD, 20783, with the ability to travel to/and from Columbia University in New York City. This is a two (2) year appointment with generous compensation, in the amount of at least $79,000 per year, as well as additional funding for relocation, health care coverage and a sizable travel budget.  The candidate must be a U.S. citizen capable of holding a DoD security clearance.


This program will review and study the effects of Cl plasma processes to dope 2D vdW materials and contact doping of monolayers in stacked heterostructures in order to modify the surface and tune the work function, enabling customization for specific device applications. Specifically, this technique could be used to reduce electrical contact resistance in electrical and optoelectronic devices, resulting in higher performance with reduced power consumption or dope 2D channels.  The fundamental science behind this process will also be investigated using a complementary suite of synchrotron-based x-ray spectroscopy and microscopy tools together with theoretical calculations, nanofabrication and device evaluation to demonstrate atomistic control of emergent optoelectronic properties in 2D vdW materials and heterostructures.



Please send resume/CV, three (3) reference names and a complete list of peer-reviewed publications by Nov. 1, 2017 to:
