OPEN RANK MOLECULAR NANOTECHNOLOGY FACULTY
Through the recently announced $150 million investment in research excellence, Rice University seeks new faculty members at all ranks, starting as early as July 1, 2017, in the broad area of molecular nanotechnology (MolNan). Successful candidates will drive a dynamic, innovative, and independent research program and will excel in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, while embracing Rice’s culture of excellence and diversity. MolNan faculty hires are expected to make original and impactful contributions in nanotechnology and in chemical engineering as an enabling discipline. The search will consider applicants from all engineering and science disciplines, with emphasis on those with research programs in sustainable energy (carbon-based, electron-based, water-based), catalysis, and polymers/soft-matter. The ideal candidate will pursue research with strong intellectual overlap with chemistry, physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and other related disciplines.

RESEARCH LAB SPECIALIST
A six-year, renewable, research lab specialist position is immediately available at Rice University in the group of Emilia Morosan. A creative, independent and self-motivated researcher would help catalyze the condensed matter group’s efforts on the quantum materials synthesis and characterization. Our group is focused on design and discovery of novel materials, with emphasis on emergent phenomena. These include all flavors of magnetism (local and itinerant moment, Kondo and heavy fermions), superconductivity and density waves, as well as exotic phenomena resulting from competing phases, e.g. quantum criticality. The synthetic efforts are complemented by advanced thermodynamic, transport and spectroscopic characterization techniques. The successful candidate will be closely collaborating with the principal investigators in Condensed Matter in setting the research agenda, while also participating in mentoring the group’s graduate and undergraduate students and postdocs. Candidates must have a good understanding of materials synthesis, and several years of experience with characterization techniques, such as x-ray diffraction, thermodynamic and transport measurements. Neutron scattering or spectroscopic techniques experience is desirable, and familiarity with band structure calculations is a plus.
The qualified candidates must have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science, with more than four years experience, past PhD. Candidates are invited to apply directly to the Principal Investigator, Professor Emilia Morosan

Postdoctoral Associate in Ultracold Atomic Physics
Rice University has an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in ultracold atomic physics in the group of Randy Hulet. The successful applicant will be a key member of an experimental program to use ultracold atomic fermions in optical lattices as a new platform to realize strongly correlated many-body states of matter. This position offers an excellent opportunity to conduct research at the forefront of the exciting field of ultracold atomic gases.
A Ph.D. in relevant areas of experimental atomic or condensed matter physics is required. Qualified candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. R. Hulet (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
