Postdoc & Early Career

The Nanomanufacturing Systems Center (NASCENT) is seeking postdoctoral fellows at The University of Texas at Austin. Our aim is (1): to identify candidates with early promise and talent from atypical backgrounds and (2) to invest in their career development and professional growth. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to create future thought leaders in nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoscale manufacturing. NASCENT is dedicated to creating an environment which reflects our critical values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Ideal candidates should have demonstrated a strong track record in research related to nanoscience or nanotechnology, with an interest in: (1) nanomanufacturing, (i.e., nanofabrication, nanometrology, data analytics applied to nanomanufacturing, etc.); or (2) applications in the areas of advanced electronics, displays, healthcare, and energy. NASCENT is a highly interdisciplinary center, with faculty members from a variety of engineering and science backgrounds, and interested candidates with doctoral degrees in engineering as well as the natural sciences are encouraged to apply.

NASCENT postdoctoral fellows will benefit from a postdoctoral mentoring program. The goal of the mentoring program is to prepare postdoctoral fellows for successful careers in academia and industry. NASCENT postdoctoral fellows will also have the opportunity to actively participate in NASCENT?s DEI efforts.

Postdoctoral fellows will join NASCENT for either two- or three-year appointments on a rolling basis, with the earliest appointments beginning in March. The funding package will include a competitive stipend, fringe benefits, travel funds, and access to NASCENT's extensive nanofabrication infrastructure.
