Description

We are looking for a qualified candidate to support on-base research efforts in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Nano-electronic Materials Branch (AFRL/RXAN).  At the broadest level our research group plans, directs and conducts in‑house and extramural research and development of materials technologies with an emphasis of functional applications with sufficient maturity to transition to the warfighter. 

The candidate will collaborate with a cross-disciplined team of government, civilian, contractor, and industry personnel on the following technical effort: developing a comprehensive laboratory for the purpose of characterizing novel microwave and radio frequency devices such as antennas and filters. Work on the design and construction of the lab, and simultaneously performing experiments using existing equipment. Collaborate with scientists in a variety of disciplines to determine the most valuable research directions and ways to improve the efficiency of communications technologies for our warfighters.

Required Skills:

A core focal area is the development of advanced or fundamentally new material systems, structures, and devices built around optical physics.  This includes the development of laser material components and system applications, as well as electro-optic and magneto-optic systems.

•    Development of experiments to characterize optical, electronic, and magnetic properties of novel materials 
•    Acquisition and analysis of experimental data 
•    Characterization of frequency-agile devices based on multiferroic heterostructures
•    Collaborate with branch team to engage senior leadership in various agencies and departments to communicate within the technology field
•    Author technical reports and presentations concerning materials design, process design etc.
•    Materials expertise related to magneto-optic materials 
•    Knowledge and experience with processes for applying thin films to various substrates 
•    Measurement and analysis of magneto-optic and ferric materials and devices (XRD, SEM/TEM, spectrophotometry, etc.)
•    Composition-microstructure-property relationships
Candidate must be a U.S. Citizen

Must have or be able to obtain a military clearance at Secret level, must be able to retain clearance through period of performance, and must be eligible for upgrade of clearance as needed (e.g. SCI, SAP/SAR)
