Job Description

In-situ electron microscopy of microelectronic device heterostructures (Materials Science Division): We seek a candidate with experience in semiconducting and oxide materials, and their characterization using advanced high resolution transmission electron microscopy (STEM, HR-TEM, and compositional mapping (EDX/EELS). The candidate will be part of a highly interdisciplinary project focused on developing a fundamental understanding of novel oxide based synaptic memory as well as investigate effects of defects and interfaces using in-situ TEM approaches. A strong experimental and theoretical background in conducting in-situ electrical transport measurements, or familiarity with electrical transport measurements of semiconductors is highly desirable but not necessary. The work will involve fabrication of suitable sample geometries for understanding electrical transport behavior of oxides, and semiconductor materials using state-of-the-art facilities at Center for Nanoscale Materials, Argonne National Laboratory. Experience with thin film deposition, nanofabrication and patterning of devices is also desirable. The synthesis of bulk materials, first-principles simulations/modeling, and organic or bio-related areas are not in consideration for this position.

The candidate should have a Ph.D in materials science/condensed matter physics/applied physics or related field. The position will be under the supervision of Dr. C.D. Phatak. https://www.anl.gov/profile/charudatta-m-phatak
