We seek an outstanding research/industry oriented fellow who desires an exciting opportunity working in the semiconductor industry developing new nanoscale devices at 14 nm and smaller.
Astrileux is a rapidly growing semiconductor R&D company in Berkeley, California that has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The successful applicant will develop and commercialize new nanoscale devices, integrating them in the next three generations of technology. Initial responsibilities for this position will require extensive work in several nano fabrication and nano-characterization facilities located in California. Travel to conferences, customer facilities to give presentations will be occasionally required. Some typical start-up company job activities may also be additionally required. This project is supported by National Science Foundation through a small business innovation grant. We hope to provide the fellow with an exciting opportunity to be part of an early stage development project with great market impact, and a chance to see their work implemented at forefront of science, through leading edge technology in a next-generation industry.
