A postdoctoral research associate with background in materials science, surface science, chemistry electrical engineering, or related field. Position will focus on in-situ surface and interface characterization using ultrahigh vacuum apparatus and device fabrication/characterization to enable correlation studies. Extensive technical work, such as equipment maintenance and repair, as well as managing laboratory/personnel safety operations, should be expected. The postdoc will interface with graduate and undergraduate students, as well as funding program sponsors from both industry and government sponsored research. The postdoc will also be responsible for high-level technical publication and proposal writing, networking with industry partners and interactions with international collaborators. Experience with operation and maintenance of ultra-high vacuum systems, thin film deposition systems (ALD, CVD, PVD, etc.), and surface science systems (XPS, UPS, LEIS, LEED, RHEED, STM and AFM) as well as knowledge of semiconductor processing, fabrication, and characterization is required. Experience in preparation/submission of publications and presentation of original research at international/industrial conferences/meetings is preferred.
Ph.D in a related field.
Preferred Education and Experience:
PhD degree with extensive knowledge and experience with thin film process and electronic device fabrication based on vacuum technology. Extensive research experience in atomic layer deposition and related device fabrication, and surface (and materials) characterization and electrical characterization, as demonstrated by at least three (3) first-author, referred journal publication/submissions in semiconductor device field. The Research Associate must demonstrate excellent oral and written communications skills.

About The University of Texas at Dallas
The University of Texas at Dallas is an innovative institution in the heart of North Texas on the path to achieving Tier One national research university status.UT Dallas has grown since its founding in 1969 to include 132 degree programs, with cutting-edge curricula serving a variety of undergraduate and graduate student interests.The University continues its original commitment to providing some of the state's most-lauded science and engineering programs and has also gained prominence for a breadth of educational paths, from criminology to biomedical engineering to arts and technology.The wealth of learning resources available to UT Dallas students is the result of a concentrated effort to attract the top minds on both ends of the classroom relationship. Joining the faculty's Nobel laureate and four National Academies members since 2005 are more than 200 tenure and tenure-track professors hailing from the world's best colleges, including Harvard, MIT, Cambridge and Columbia University. In addition, UT Dallas is home to more than 50 centers, labs and institutes that facilitate research and opportunities for hands-on learning. Students, meanwhile, arrive at UT Dallas well-prepared ...to succeed in higher education: In 2011, nearly 39 percent of freshmen ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school class, and 75 percent ranked in the top 25 percent.With an eye on building a future as bright as its beginnings, UT Dallas will continue its push to attain Tier One research university status and produce graduates who are well-equipped to succeed professionally.
