Please join us this Thursday, 1/14/2021, for the next NanoES seminar featuring the president and CEO of Zyvex Lab and Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas. The seminar will take place on zoom:
Digital Atomic-Scale Fabrication:
A new approach to Atomically Precise Manufacturing
John N. Randall
Zyvex Labs, Richardson Texas
Today is the National Nano Day 10/9; pays homage to the nanometer scale 10^-9 meters.

I'm very sad to share that Distinguished Professor Patricia “Pat” Thiel passed away on Sept. 7, 2020. Thiel, a distinguished professor with ISU’s Department of Chemistry and an appointment in MSE, as well as a scientist with Ames Laboratory, was a faculty member at Iowa State for over 35 years, including roles as Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chief Research Officer of the Ames Laboratory. Pat was an extraordinary person — brilliant, kind, and thoughtful. I enjoyed every discussion with her.
02/02/2020 - Ph.D. Positions
This recruitment will be used to create a pool of interested applicants to fill Lab Assistant positions for the School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) at Oregon State University as the need arises. These positions vary from 1-20 hours per week depending on the need and assignment.
100% Duties to be determined by hiring unit/supervisor and may include book reviews and publication research, experimentation in a laboratory setting, laboratory set-up and maintenance, data collection and analysis, and other related tasks.
Other duties are performed specific to the funding and research topic. Duties may include, but are not limited to:
- Work in a chemical laboratory performing chemical reactions, chemical analyses, instrument operation, general cleanup duties, chemical purchasing, report and publication writing and presentations to various audiences depending on the project.
- Computer modelling
- Work with hazardous chemicals and/or materials as needed, depending on the project.
- Prepare samples for testing.
- Manage data and experiment analysis
- Use all manner of common lab equipment, such as microscopes, scales, measurement devices, testing machines, power saws, and data collection systems to address project goals.
9/6/2019 - Congratulations
Derek Dardzinski, a chemical engineering senior, took top honors in the undergrad competition at the 2019 Symposium of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the American Vacuum Society, held Sept. 5-6 at Washington State University. Jacqueline Frawley and Spencer Falk received honorable mentions.
8/15/2019 - Special guest speaker Robert M. Wallace, from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas, will be visiting CBEE on Sept. 3 to talk about "2D Materials for Nanoelectronics." A flyer with a brief abstract and bio is shown below.
• Trey Diulus Ph.D. Defense - July 18th at 2 pm in Johnson 102
Thesis title: Characterization and Investigations of Thin-Film Materials with X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy
• Postdoctoral position in ambient-pressure XPS/STM
The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated track record of scholarship, including several first-author publications, presentations at scientific conferences, and strong project management skills. The candidate will study the surface and interface properties of materials using ambient pressure XPS and STM. Projects include single atom catalysis, surface corrosion, and electronic materials/devices. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience with ambient pressure techniques (AP-XPS and/or AP-STM) and will contribute to the educational and research mission of CBEE and OSU.
Further information regarding the research in Prof. Herman’s group, research capabilities, and postdoctoral positions at Oregon State University can be found at http://research.engr.oregonstate.edu/herman/, http://nnci.oregonstate.edu and http://gradschool.oregonstate.edu/postdocs, respectively.
Candidates must have completed their doctoral defense and be able to start as soon as possible. To apply please send a single pdf file containing a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
