The Electro-Optics Center (EOC) is a science and technology-based laboratory serving as a Defense Related Research Unit within The Pennsylvania State University. In this role the EOC is an integral part of one of the leading research universities in the nation and provides research, development, systems engineering and technology transfer for a wide range of Department of Defense and Industrial Sponsors. The EOC works very closely with the Penn State Materials Research Institute, the Penn State Applied Research Lab, and numerous academic departments. The EOC and its alliance of over 400 companies, university and government laboratories serve to nurture the development and transition electronics and electro-optics technologies needed for the advancement of the nations defense capabilities. The EOC is a hybrid between the best components of a university and those of private industry. This relationship allows us access to the universitys researchers and scientists, its state-of-the-art facilities and leading edge research. Our staff, comprised primarily of former industrial and DoD personnel, brings experience in exceeding sponsor and corporate expectations. Through the application of this hybrid model, the EOC is able to provide its sponsors with solutions that combine leading edge research with on-time and on-budget deliveries. EOC is currently looking to fill a Research Associate position in our Materials Department.
There is a current need for a Research Associate (Research Faculty) in the Penn State Electro-Optics Center Materials Division located in University Park (State College, PA) with expertise in semiconductor device fabrication and characterization. Successful candidates will possess and apply advanced knowledge of semiconductor device design, fabrication and characterization to develop and transition RF, IR and radiation detection technology. Candidates are expected to have a PhD degree in materials science, electrical engineering, physics, or a related field, along with five years of experience. At least two years of that experience must be in device fabrication and evaluation. Knowledge in semiconductor and device fabrication and testing is essential, with knowledge in device design also required.
Candidate responsibilities will include leading experimental research programs for fabrication, testing, and analysis of a variety of devices including RF transistors, high voltage diodes, radiation detection sensors, and infrared sensors. Materials systems of interest currently include graphene, graphene-oxide, AlGaN/GaN, gadolinium oxide, boron nitride and molybdenum disulfide. Specifically, the candidate will be responsible for leading efforts to improve transistor performance beyond state-of-the-art by carefully evaluating device parasitics via I/V, C/V, pulsed I/V, and RF characterization; and subsequently addressing parasitics through experimental research. Over time, the candidate will also lead efforts for the study and optimization of sensor performance including interfacing with nuclear engineering and infrared characterization staff. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding. Must be a U.S. Citizen to apply.
Applicants should submit resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org and reference Job #36288. Applications will be accepted until job is filled. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION about the Electro-Optics Center or current position vacancies, visit our web site at www.eoc.psu.edu.
