We have IMMEDIATE post-doc openings in one or more of the following areas.
a) Bio-MEMS / MEMS including microfabrication, photolithography, soft lithography, imprint and e-beam lithography. (familiarity with all top down techniques in micro and nanofabrication)
b) Cell and tissue engineering (expertise in cell culture, optical fluorescence microscopy; PDMS based bio-MEMS a plus)
c) Non-linear optical spectroscopy specifically Sum Frequency Generation (SFG) (familiarity with pico-second laser systems and electronic devices needed)
Please email (email@example.com) if interested.
We are also ALWAYS on the lookout for EXCEPTIONAL and highly CREATIVE undergraduate and graduate students to fill openings that periodically become available in our research group. Please direct all correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are a multidisciplinary group and key facililites in our own research group include
a) For Microfabrication: We have our own 150 sq. foot clean room with two laminar flow hoods, programmable hot plates, an oven and a Quintel mask aligner. In addition, in our groupwe have modest micro/nanofab facilities including a Harrick barrell etcher, thermal evaporator, electron microscope and CVD tube vacuum furnace.
b) For Cell Culture: We have 3 foot and a 6-foot Class II A2 biological safety cabinets, incubators, refrigerator/freezers, vortexers, centrifuges, upright light microscopes with fluorescence, water baths and access to an autoclave.
c) For Surface Analysis: Our group has a Veeco CP-II Atomic Force Microscope and EKSPLA IR+Visible Sum Frequency Generation Vibrational Spectroscopy System powered by a picosecond Nd:YAG laser (30 ps).
d) For Electronic Measurements: A suite of electronic measurement tools including two Keithley 2400 source meters, a Keithley 6430 sub-femto ammeter, Princeton Research Verastat 3 and 362 potentiostats, GHz RF signal generator, network analyzer and amplifier, oscilloscopes, function generators,
In addition we have access to a large number of user facilities on the JHU campus including the Integrated Imaging Center (IIC, Biology), electron microscopes and spectroscopic tools i.e. IR, NMR, XPS at the JHU (MRSEC), the clean room at the Whitaker Lithographic Facility, the enormous biomedical facilities at JHU Medicine, and regional facilities at NIST, NNIN (Penn State), Army Lab and JHU-Applied Physics Laboratory.
