Recruiting for postdoc opening

10/9/2019 3:41:00 PM

I'm not sure if you remember me, but we met briefly after your seminar when you visited Matt Ferguson at Boise State.  I have an immediate opening in my group for a postdoctoral researcher with experience in single-molecule microscopy and spectroscopy at Boise State.

Specifically, my group is performing experimental research using super-resolution microscopy (via DNA-PAINT) with DNA origami nanostructures, combined with single molecule dipole imaging.  As such, the ideal candidate will 

  • Be a motivated researcher capable of working both independently and with a team. 
  • Have a background in experimental physics, materials science, chemistry, or closely related experience. 
  • Have experience using Matlab (or similar) for data analysis and modeling. 
  • Be interested in building experimental systems for time-resolved and spectral characterization using femtosecond laser sources. 

I hope that you may know of a suitable candidate, or could possibly forward this to a colleague who may be interested and qualified.

Candidates can send a cover letter and CV with references to me directly via email:  Postdoctoral researchers receive comprehensive benefits and very competitive salaries.

More information about our research group ( and the Micron School of Materials ( can be found online.  Boise State University is located in Boise, ID, the capital city with a Northwest metropolitan character that boasts a high quality of life, low crime rate, and easy access to incredible outdoor activities. 

Please, do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.  Your time and assistance are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
