Postdoctoral Scholar Position - Flexible Electronics Engineers at OSU

The Schools of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University invites applications for up to two full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month post-doctoral scholars in the area of flexible electronics with a focus on biosensing. 

LOCATION: Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon 


APPOINTMENT:    1.0 FTE, 2 years


AVAILABLE:         February 15, 2013

CLOSING DATE:   January 15, 2013 or until qualified applicant identified

POSITION SUMMARY: The Schools of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University invites applications for up to two full-time (1.0 FTE), 12-month post-doctoral scholars in the area of flexible electronics with a focus on biosensing.  The first candidate should have expertise in thin film deposition, photolithography, and etching for fabrication of devices.  The second candidate should have expertise in electrochemistry, solution processing, and functional ink development for sensing applications. Both candidates should have experience working with flexible substrates, specifically process integration on polymeric substrates. This position provides an opportunity for cross-disciplinary research in the application of materials science to the development of flexible sensing systems for human health monitoring. This research is in collaboration with Pacific Diabetes Technologies, and the successful candidate is also expected to mentor and collaborate with graduate and undergraduate students, interface with researchers at our industrial partner, and to assume both lead and supporting roles in the preparation of manuscripts for publication.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:
- Minimum of a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science or related field.
- Demonstrated capacity for intellectual creativity and leadership in university-level scholarship
- Evidence of ability and interest in participating in diverse interdisciplinary teams.
- Demonstrated record of publication or other scholarly activity.
- Excellent oral and written communication skills.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:
- Experience with flexible electronics fabrication techniques, including fab and printing based methods.
- Experience with biosensor development, including functionalization techniques.
