Summary of Job Duties:
The newly formed MonArk NSF Quantum Foundry (a consortium between Montana State University and the University of Arkansas that is supported by a six-year, $20 million budget) is seeking to fill a position of Research Assistant Professor to fill the role of Foundry Network Coordinator to support research in the area of two-dimensional quantum materials and devices.
The Foundry Network Coordinator will be an outward-facing Foundry scientist who leads the recruitment and development of collaborative research through the national user program of the MonArk Quantum Foundry. During the first two years, the Foundry Network Coordinator will work alongside the Foundry Liaison to establish the planned infrastructure. The infrastructure includes state-of-the-art sample preparation, device fabrication, and optoelectronic characterization facilities for 2D quantum materials research.
In parallel, the Foundry Network Coordinator will work with the MonArk Foundry Networking Director, the Foundry leadership team, and Foundry staff to establish and manage the resources needed to implement the national networking program. These resource development tasks will include working with third-party contractors on the development of open-source data sharing and knowledge dissemination resources targeted to the 2D quantum materials research community. Close interactions with world-leading research groups in 2D quantum materials are expected. In subsequent years, the Foundry Network Coordinator will leverage the expertise gained and infrastructure established in the first two years to facilitate highly collaborative projects with external users of the MonArk Quantum Foundry. These activities will include working with users to develop competitive proposals, coordinating research projects with MonArk faculty and staff, and implementing research projects with users.
The research portfolio of the Network Coordinator is expected to emphasize collaborative projects but may also include independent research projects led by the appointee. Graduate student and/or postdoc support will be made available to the appointee on a competitive basis for support of these projects. Throughout the appointment, the Foundry Network Coordinator will represent the MonArk Quantum Foundry at national and international conferences as well as support the organization of an annual conference, external advisory board meetings, and annual reporting of the MonArk Quantum Foundry.
