Position Highlights

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department at The University of Arizona is seeking qualified, motivated scientists for an appointment as Postdoctoral Research Associate I. This candidate will participate in and help lead an effort to prepare and characterize the structural properties of organic monolayers and multilayers on transparent conductive oxide substrates using waveguide-based spectroscopic and spectroelectrochemical methodologies. The candidate will also join a team studying the interface composition and energetics of semiconductor nanocrystalline materials using electrochemical/spectroelectrochemical methodologies.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!

The University of Arizona has been recognized for our innovative work-life programs. For more information about working at the University of Arizona and relocation services, please click here.
