Seeking a Ph.D to support research projects in nanotechnology related to single molecule and single cell  spectroscopy. This work utilizes nanometer-diameter pores through nanometer-thick solid-state membranes or quartz pipettes with nanometer-diameter orifices that are immersed in an electrolytic solution to detect single molecules for applications in protein sequencing or identifying protein structure. The successful applicant must have completed a Ph.D., preferably in molecular and cell biology, electrical engineering, physics, biophysics, bioengineering 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 biomolecules and abiotic nanostructures and/or nanoelectronics. Experience in a subset of the following disciplines is mandatory: aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy; micro- and nanofluidics; atomic force/scanning probe microscopy; free-space laser optics and preferably optical tweezing; semiconductor device fabrication; high frequency, low-noise electrical measurements; molecular and cell biology; interfacing computers with instrumentation using LABVIEW; and programming in MATLAB, PYTHON, C++, and/or 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, please delineate specifically how your skills can be applied to the work in this lab.
