In this role you will
Conduct research in the areas of low-dimensional materials and devide fabrication.
Design, implement, and analyze experiments for the creation and integration of novel nanostructures in functional material systems.
Contribute to and actively participate in the conception and execution of research to address defined problems.
Organize, analyze, and present data from research at seminars, technical meetings, national and international conferences.
Publish research results in peer-reviewed scientific or technical journals.
Collaborate with others in a multidisciplinary team environment both at LLNL and in other national laboratories and universities to accomplish research goals.
Pursue independent (but complementary) research interests and interact with a broad spectrum of scientists internally and externally to the Laboratory.
Perform other duties as assigned.
PhD in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics or related field, with emphasis on low-dimensional materials.
Experience in synthesis and characterization of low-dimensional structures such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, metal chalcogenides, and related nanostructures.
Experience with integrating nanostructures into functional devices by various micro/nanofabrication techniques.
Experience with characterizing the electronic and/or electrochemical performance of nanostructured materials.
Experience with thin-film deposition techniques such as thermal chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, and atomic layer deposition.
Ability to understand and analyze performed experiments.
Proficient experimentalist with a broad range of experience in experimental design, techniques, and execution.
Proficient verbal and written communication and interpersonal skills to collaborate effectively in a multidisciplinary team environment and present and explain technical information.
Qualifications We Desire
Experience with detailed metrology such as Raman, PL, TGA, SEM, TEM, XPS, XRD, SAXS/WAXS.
Experience with methods of exploiting material interfaces and surface chemistry toward sensing or energy storage applications.
Familiarity with additive manufacturing techniques such as direct-ink writing or two-photon polymerization.

About Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
For more than 60 years, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has applied science and technology to make the world a safer place.Livermore’s defining responsibility is ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nation’s nuclear deterrent. Yet LLNL’s mission is broader than stockpile stewardship, as dangers ranging from nuclear proliferation and terrorism to energy shortages and climate change threaten national security and global stability. The Laboratory’s science and engineering are being applied to achieve breakthroughs for counterterrorism and nonproliferation, defense and intelligence, energy and environmental security.
