Multiple Tenured Positions: UCI 2016 Midcareer Professor Hiring Initiative

 

UCI is engaged in ambitious strategic expansion and seeks to hire tenured Associate to early Full Professors with distinguished publication (or creative endeavor) records and upward trajectories in their research profiles. This special initiative is independent of other specific search announcements. We will build on the existing strengths of our faculty campuswide, fortify our commitment to diversity and consider interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and convergent-science scholars for hire in general campus units.

Postdoctoral scholar - Advanced Electron Microscopy and Nanostructure Materials

Commensurate with experience
Will remain open until filled

A postdoctoral scholar position is available in advanced electron microscopy and nanostructure materials in Professor Xiaoqing Pan’s laboratory in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at University of California, Irvine. The postdoctoral scholar will be focused on the development of low-voltage aberration-corrected scanning/transmission electron microscopy (AC S/TEM) and spectroscopy techniques and their applications in novel nanostructure materials, such as energy materials and emerging two-dimensional materials. Applications are being sought from recent Ph.D.
