Strong candidates will have at least one year of postdoctoral research experience.
The successful applicant will benefit from the department’s supportive and collegial environment, which includes close affiliations with Boston University’s Materials Science & Engineering Division, the Photonics Center, Boston University’s Center for Molecular Discovery, and the Institute for Sustainable Energy.
