Seeking a Ph.D to support research projects in nanotechnologies related to single molecule spectroscopy with scanned force microscopy and/or optical tweezers, to be used in conjunction with nanopores and picopores in solid-state membranes, for applications in sequencing DNA and protein. The successful applicant must have completed a Ph.D. preferably in physics, biophysics, electrical engineering, bio-engineering or a closely related discipline, with a proven capacity for world-class research that is reflected in a publication record.

Considerable skill is required in implementing experiments to probe the interactions between living matter or biomolecules and light, electronics, and or abiotic micro/nanostructures. Extensive experience in a subset of the following disciplines is mandatory: atomic force/scanning tunneling microscopy; free-space laser optics and preferably optical tweezing; transmission electron microscopy; micro- and nanofluidics; molecular biology; semiconductor processing; low-noise, phase-sensitive lock-in measurements; and a facility for programming in MATLAB and LABVIEW, C++, and Igor. For more information, candidates should refer to the web site:

Interested applicants should send a detailed CV, along with a list of publications, and arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent via email directly to Prof. Gregory Timp ( In the cover letter, delineate specifically how your skills can be applied to the work in this lab.
