Berkeley Lab’s Material Sciences Division has an opening for an X-ray/EUV Optic Nanofabrication Postdoc.  

The Center for X-ray Optics is a recognized world leader in the development of x-ray optics and EUV lithography technology. It has expansive collaborations with industrial entities and academic research laboratories globally. Its Nanofabrication group is seeking a recent Ph.D. graduate scientist/engineer to engage in projects fabricating x-ray/EUV diffractive optics and engineered nanostructures with 10-100 nm size critical features.  We have a suite of nanofabrication capabilities such as plasma etching and evaporation deposition and have a partnership with the Molecular Foundry, which possesses state-of-the-art electron beam lithography, atomic layer deposition, direct self-assembly, and other technologies. We are seeking someone who can play a significant role in efforts to apply and extend these capabilities to smaller than 10 nm, high aspect ratio, 3-D geometry, and a variety of materials.  

What You Will Do:

  • Carry out original basic research in nanopatterning and nanofabrication primarily based on state-of-the-art electron beam lithography for areas including complex diffractive optics, material research, semiconductor lithography research, and astrophysics.
  • Fabricate diffractive optics and nanostructures for x-ray applications and EUV lithography R&D.
  • Collaborate and work with researchers and engineers from different disciplines to develop solutions that meet complicated project requirements.
  • Explore new application areas of nanofabrication relevant to our applications.
  • Participate in the nanofabrication laboratory operation.
  • Prepare research publications, and communicate results at professional meetings.

What is Required:

  • Ph.D. in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Material Science or a related field.
  • Publication record that demonstrates extensive knowledge and experience with electron beam lithography, atomic layer deposition, electroplating, plasma etching, direct self-assembly, and/or other nanofabrication science and technology.
  • Strong interest in diffractive optics. 
  • High self-motivation and independence
  • Assertive and can take ownership of projects
  • Ability to work effectively within a team and with various levels of internal and external users and staff.
  • Well-developed oral and written communication skills
  • Strong organizational and time management skills. Ability to manage competing priorities, provide quality work within tight time constraints, and deliver projects on schedule.
  • Strong sense of safety culture.

Requested Application Materials:

  • Statement of research experience (1 page)


Notes:

  • This is a full-time, 1-year, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.
  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
  • Berkeley Lab is committed to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability (IDEA) and strives to hire individuals from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives who share these same values and commitments. 
  • Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
