Rice University, Physics and Astronomy Postdoc Position: The Natelson group at Rice University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to conduct research on light emission in molecular-scale plasmon-based nanostructures. The researcher will be responsible for performing research on multiple interrelated projects and will assist in supervising students in the research. One project is to implement single-photon counting and time correlation spectroscopy to examine the mechanism of light emission from atomic-scale plasmonic tunnel junctions. A second planned set of experiments is to examine the energy and speed limitations of the recently discovered, greatly enhanced light emission of such junctions under combined electronic and optical excitation. A third project would examine emission processes in such junctions coupled to a gain medium. The researcher will be responsible for device fabrication; operation of optical and electronic measurement apparatus; collaborative experimental design and analysis of the resulting data; and collaborative writing of papers to publish the results. The successful candidate must have a PhD or equivalent in physics or related fields by the start date of the position. The appointment will be for up to two years and will start in early 2021. Please submit the following materials (Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae, Publications, Personal Statement) to the job posting (https://jobs.rice.edu/postings/24722 <https://jobs.rice.edu/postings/24722>). In addition, candidates will be asked to submit names and contact information for three letters of reference, who will automatically be emailed at the time of application.
