Position Description:    

*** The account for Del Barco Lab, University of Central Florida has expired. ***

Position Description 
The group of Nanomagnetism and Spintronics of the Physics Department at the University of Central Florida (UCF) offers a postdoctoral position in Molecular Electronics. The position is funded for one year and renewable for up to two years (subject to availability of funds and performance evaluation). The postdoctoral scholar will collaborate in a project funded by the Engineering Division of the National Science Foundation (ECCS program) which aims at investigating the transport properties of single-molecule tunnel junctions within a broad range of experimental conditions (including low-temperatures and optical stimuli). The goal is to understand charge current rectification in molecular devices and pave the way towards developing molecular electronics devices with functionalities complementary to existing commercial options, such as silicon-based diodes. The project encompasses chemistry, physics, device fabrication and technique development, as well as fundamental studies in a broad range of experimental conditions.

The postdoctoral associate will co-supervise graduate and undergraduate students and interact with an international collaboration team of chemistry and theory groups in the US and abroad (Asia and Europe). 

Starting date: 

As soon as August 1st, 2019.

Position Requirements*

Only applications fulfilling some of the following requirements will be considered: i) A strong experimental background in device physics in nanoscale electric transport, preferably with expertise in single-molecule tunnel junctions or related areas (e.g., single-electron tunneling, quantum dots); ii) expertise in optoelectronics in nanoscale devices will be very beneficial for some aspects of this project and will be given priority; and iii) hands-on experience in cryogenic (sub-Kelvin) quantum measurements is required. Candidates with additional expertise in numerical simulation, programming, data analysis, nanofabrication, and instrumentation will be given priority. Contact Please send application directly to Dr. Enrique del Barco ( if interested. Include CV and the name and contact information of two references who can talk about your expertise and qualifications (including your most recent research advisor/s). 

*As an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, UCF encourages all qualified applicants to apply, including women, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and members of traditionally underrepresented populations.
