Postdoctoral and Senior Research Awards
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine administers postdoctoral and senior research awards at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT), and the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) under the Air Force Science & Technology Fellowship Program (AF STFP)We are seeking highly qualified candidates who are U.S. citizens and hold, or anticipate earning, a doctorate in a variety of fields of science or engineering.

Application deadline dates (four annual review cycles):
February 1
May 1
August 1
November 1

Applicants should contact prospective AFRL, AFIT and USAFA Research Adviser(s) at the lab(s) prior to the application deadline to discuss their research interests and funding opportunities.For detailed program information, to search for AFRL, AFIT, and USAFA Research Opportunities, and to contact prospective Research Adviser(s), visit www.nas.edu/afstfp.


For undergraduates seeking research opportunities more generally within OSU, the best way to find a research position is to meet with faculty directly (Research groups don’t post positions through OSU).

  • Look into the faculty at OSU and the research they conduct. Interested in the MRSEC? Visit out our People page.
    • Meet with professors about their research and projects; share your enthusiasm and skills!
    • Network with students and faculty at events. It’s a great way to learn more about a group or project and get involved.
      • CEM Coffee Hour, Wednesdays at 3:30, PRB Second Floor Bridge
      • Physics T.E.A. (Talking, Eating, Action), Thursdays at 3:00, PRB Commons
      • Astro Coffee, each morning at 10:30 in the Astronomy Conference Room (4054 McPherson)

Sonera Magnetics
Sonera is developing novel sensing technology for high-performance, non-invasive brain-computer interfaces, with the goal of connecting minds and machines. Our mission is to democratize access to the brain by capturing the power of massive machines in ubiquitous devices. We are building a team of technical experts and visionaries who are driven by the opportunity to make a transformative impact on the world.

We are looking for an outstanding, hands-on scientist or engineer with an in-depth materials science knowledge, to join our sensor development efforts. Work will focus on sputtering, characterization and iterative optimization of the magnetic materials and stacks used in our system – both on bare substrates as well as on functional sensor devices. The ideal candidate will have experience with sputter deposition and advanced characterization of magnetic thin films, at both DC and RF frequencies, as well as a strong technical understanding of magnetism, magnetoelectronics and magnetization dynamics. This person should be confident in taking on project management responsibilities, and comfortable with creative problem solving in a startup environment.

Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona 

ERC Advanced Grant on Magnetoelectric Materials
A Postdoc position is available at the “Group of Smart Nanoengineered Materials, Nanomechanics and Nanomagnetism (Gnm3)” of the Physics Department at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. We are looking for a highly motivated candidate that will investigate how to make magnetic data in computers, cell phones or credit cards “invisible” by applying electric voltage for anti-hacking and anti-counterfeiting applications. The project has been recently awarded 2.5 M€ by the European Research Council. Since it is a high-risk/high-gain research programme, we need candidates with an outstanding CV and, more importantly, a high degree of ambition and motivation, and with good personal qualities to work in our Team. The duration of the appointment is 2 years, with the possibility to be further extended.

Additional requirements for a stronger application are:
– Previous expertise on sputtering and other thin-film deposition techniques.
– Previous knowledge on magnetic materials and magnetoelectric actuation in general.
Outstanding level in English, in particular for scientific writing (publications and projects).

Active job postings can be found here.
