Job Description

The department of Physics in UAE University is seeking for highly-qualified, self-motivated microfabrication and characterization postdoc to participate in the activities related to the R&D of new smart gas sensors using IOT paradigm. The candidate will be integrated in international multidisciplinary team with a comprehensive expertise in fabrication and characterization of gas sensors, 2D materials, and theoretical simulations. The candidate will be expected to participate actively in activities related to the research and development of new nanostructured materials to provide multiple functional properties using different substrates. The candidate will be expected to process, characterize and evaluate single sensor and multi sensors, using different materials, to achieve multiple functional properties. In addition, the post doc will participate in ongoing projects as well as the supervision of PhD and master students in the team. The candidate should demonstrate independence and creativity in preparing, executing and optimizing new microfabrication processes, as well as in preparing and performing characterization of samples. The position will start on January, 2021. For more details, please contact Dr Adel Najar (adel.najar@uaeu.ac.ae)
