Description

The California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) is an integrated research facility. Its mission is to encourage university collaboration with industry and to enable the rapid commercialization of discoveries in nanoscience and nanotechnology. CNSI members represent a multi-disciplinary team of some of the world's preeminent scientists from the life and physical sciences, engineering, and medicine. The work conducted at the CNSI represents world-class expertise in four targeted areas of nanosystems-related research including Energy, Environment, Health-Medicine, and Information Technology.

CNSI is actively seeking Project Scientists (in the full, Associate, and Assistant ranks) to commit effort on CNSI projects. This is a large, pooled recruitment covering many disciplines and research foci. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed through October 31, 2018. The number of positions varies depending on the needs of the department. The use of a pooled recruitment does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. Positions may range from part-time to 100%.

Appointees to the Project Scientists make significant and creative contributions to a research or creative project. Appointees may be ongoing members of a research team, or may contribute high-level skills to a specific project for a limited time. Demonstrated capacity for fully independent research or research leadership (at the level of the Researcher series) is not required in this series; however, appointees with the Project Scientist title should have broad range of knowledge and competency and be able to operate at a higher level of independence.

Salary is dependent on experience, qualifications, and hiring level. The UCSB salary scales may be found at https://ap.ucsb.edu/compensation.and.benefits/ucsb.salary.scales/

Appointees to this series must possess a doctorate or its equivalent at the time of initial appointment.
