Prize Postdoctoral Fellowships in Nanoscience

The Kavli Nanoscience Institute invites applications and nominations for Prize Postdoctoral Fellowships in Nanoscience.

In this open competition, strong preference will be given to applicants who propose research in interdisciplinary areas of nano science, which additionally requires the use of the KNI Cleanroom facility. Prior to application submission, support for the proposed research should be formally obtained from at least one, and preferably two, faculty members in different divisions* at Caltech. The Fellowships are to begin in Fall 2015 and are for a two-year duration. They carry an annual salary of $63,000 plus $4,000 per anum for research and up to $3,000 in relocation costs. The deadline for application is November 24, 2014.

This Fellowship Program has been established to offer scientists, typically within a few years after receipt of the Ph.D. degree, the opportunity to pursue new and innovative experimental research at the frontiers of nanoscience and engineering. It is expected that this research will require the support and use of the facilities of two of the established experimental groups at Caltech. Currently, Caltech has groups working in Applied Physics, Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Condensed Matter Physics, Biology, Bioengineering, Medical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Quantum Optics.

Each candidate must be sponsored by at least one and preferably two Caltech faculty members, and submit, as part of the application, letters of support from these faculty.
