Job Description

Norfolk State University's (NSU) Center for Materials Research (CMR), invites applicants for the position of Research Assistant Professor. The College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) features a growing focus on emerging areas in science and technology; the engineering department was established in 2002 as a separate program. Today, the Physics department offers a Bachelor's of Science degree in Physics, and the PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering program. Through the National Science Foundation (NSF), an opportunity has arisen for a Research Assistant Professor, for the funded project of the EIR for crystal growth of fermion materials. The selected candidate will join a cohesive faculty group in the Crystal Physics and Quantum Electronics Laboratory, and be responsible for single crystal growth of Weyl semimetals, topological insulators, and perovskite oxides. Additional areas of responsibility include: 1. Work closely with members of the Quantum Electronics Group research team. 2. Optical floating zone single crystal growth of perovskite oxides. 3. Power pattern and Laue x-ray analysis of crystal structures and orientation. 4. Quantitative analysis of measured data. 5. Support in the supervision of undergraduate and graduate students. 6. Prepare project reports, scientific papers and technical presentations on the results of the research. 7. Single crystal growth using the Bridgman technique. The Immigration and Reform Control Act of 1986 requires all employees to furnish evidence of employment eligibility. Norfolk State University will not provide Visa sponsorship.
