The Advanced Imager Technology Group performs research and development of imager devices and subsystem-level technology for the DoD and scientific community. The imager efforts include advanced silicon-based and compound semiconductor-based focal-plane technologies for applications such as ground- and space-based surveillance, adaptive optics, and astronomy. These focal planes address special requirements, for example, large-format gigapixel arrays, very-high-speed imagers (100 ps exposures), time-of-arrival detectors (LADAR receiver), and low-light-level imaging applications. World-class charge-coupled-device (CCD) imagers fabricated by this group have been used in a variety of high-end scientific applications, for example, focal planes for the Chandra X-ray telescope and other preeminent astronomical observatories. The group's efforts span the range of device and materials development, integrated circuit design and fabrication, custom packaging, detector hybridization, and the development of control and readout electronics for system-level demonstrations.

The Advanced Imager Technology Group is seeking to hire a staff member with broad responsibilities in the modeling, design and fabrication of high-performance compound semiconductor photodetectors. The staff member will be responsible for design and modeling of novel semiconductor devices. The staff member will work in a small team along with material scientists, fabrication engineers, and application engineers to fabricate new imagers using leading-edge technologies and materials. The job will require developing creative solutions to challenging imaging problems using new materials and device designs.

Requirements: Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or Physics with an emphasis on semiconductor devices. Experience with semiconductor device modeling and design are required. Microfabrication experience with compound semiconductor materials and processes is also required. The staff member must have effective written and oral communication skills as well as the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

U.S. citizenship is required.
