Postdoctoral Fellow - Semiconductor Nanostructure Device Development

The successful candidate will primarily be responsible to develop device processing and characterization methods for Type II superlattice infrared detectors and arrays in support of existing R&D programs. The development of related new R&D programs is also a responsibility.


The successful candidate will:

  • design and implement device processing methodologies and improvements for both single element devices and large format arrays based on Type II superlattice absorbers
  • develop and implement device and array performance characterization tools
  • assume principle investigator responsibility of existing R&D programs, including reporting and coordination with team members
  • develop related new R&D programs
  • present results at conferences and publish R&D papers
  • develop prototype infrared sensing products


  • General laboratory and clean-room practices
  • Direct experience in the assembly, use and maintenance of semiconductor device processing equipment (e.g. photolithography, wet and dry chemical etching, material deposition)
  • Direct experience in semiconductor device fabrication including safety and ESD procedures
  • Device physics or electrical engineering skills to understand optoelectronic device performance data so that process improvement feedback may be efficiently implemented
  • Design and implementation of controlled experiments and statistical process control
  • Computer skills including MS Office
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, strong organization skills with an attention to detail, excellent documentation capability
  • Candidate should be enthusiastic and self-motivated


  • PhD degree in relevant science or engineering discipline
  • Citizen or permanent resident of the United States
