The Laser-Assisted Nano Engineering laboratory in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is seeking a qualified individual to fulfill a non-tenure track Research Associate Professor Position on one-year fixed-term basis (10/01/2015 to 09/30/2016), with the possibility of renewal based on performance and available funding.

Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in physics, materials science and engineering, or a closely related field, and at least three-year research-faculty experience in two-photon polymerization micro/nano-fabrication, laser-assisted diamond growth, laser-assisted GaN deposition, and laser-assisted carbon nanostructure fabrication (such as carbon nanotubes, carbon nanoions and graphene).

The appointee is expected to conduct frontier research in laser-assisted material synthesis and micro/nano-fabrication, engage intensively in lab management, grant application, and graduate student mentoring, and be responsible for quality teaching in relevant subjects at undergraduate or postgraduate levels.

Formal applications must be submitted online at this link: Search for Research Associate Professor Electrical and Computer Engineering (Requisition Number F_150116).
