Transmission Electron Microscopy Scientist – JC 4982/K
Transmission Electron Microscopy Scientist, Stanford Nano Shared Facilities
The Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF) is seeking a Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) scientist to lead the operations of the facilities' FEI Titan Environmental TEM. The TEM scientist will provide training and support to researchers, maintain and optimize the microscope operation, work closely with equipment vendors, maintain and develop training procedures, develop and implement advanced techniques, assist and advice users on specimen preparation and data analysis, provide proof-of-concept service, and engage in research activities. The SNSF Titan ETEM is equipped with a spherical aberration corrector, EELS and EDS, a monochromator and high brightness gun, Lorentz, holography, and tomography capabilities, as well as a suite of in situ holders. S(he) will work to utilize this range of advanced techniques to the highest extent, making them known to the user community, matching appropriate techniques to the individual research projects. S(he) will interact with the broader research community and equipment vendors to be aware of advances in the field, and make recommendations and prepare proposals for future equipment purchases. S(he) will promote and collaborate in the publication and presentation of results and participate in conferences.
Stanford's shared nanofacilities offer a comprehensive array of advanced nanofabrication and nanocharacterization tools. Over 1,000 researchers make use of the shared facilities each year in order to further their research programs. The goal of the shared facilities at Stanford University is to provide open, cost-effective access to state-of-the-art nanofabrication and nanocharacterization facilities for scientists and engineers from academia, small and large companies, and government laboratories. The FEI Titan TEM is organized under SNSF in the Electron & Ion Microscopy Suite which currently features a FEI Tecnai TEM as well as two FIB/SEMs and two SEMs. S(he) may supervise student trainers. The TEM scientist will report to the Faculty Director of SNSF.

About Stanford University
Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
