**Are you passionate about your work and dream of utilizing state-of-the-art facilities to explore solutions? Do you want to join a dynamic team that helps tackle some the most challenging issues facing our nation's security?** A Postdoctoral Appointee position exists for an exceptional candidate to conduct leading edge research in the areas of heterogeneously integrated embedded computing and advanced complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) devices. You will also utilize other advanced semiconductor device technologies, and memristive/resistive memory (ReRAM) and other forms of non-volatile memories. You will create a model that enables the real time physical simulation of power and heat dissipation in a heterogeneously integrated embedded computing system while performing relevant tasks. You will work on a multidisciplinary research team of engineers and scientists to create and validate this model. Results will be published in peer reviewed Journals and Conferences.
+ You have a Ph.D. in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, Physics, or a related STEM field with an emphasis in electron devices and power and heat modeling. + Ability to work in a cleanroom environment. + Ability to obtain and maintain DOE security clearance.
Ideally, your background will also include some of the following: + Understanding of microelectronic fabrication processes, materials, device physics, and basic circuits. + Understanding of thermal properties of electronic materials. + Excellent written and communication skills as evidenced by a track record of publications in peer reviewed journals and/or conferences. + Working knowledge of high level programming language (Python, C++, MATLAB, or similar) + Working knowledge of microelectronics packaging and heterogeneous integration structures and techniques (2.5D, 3D, SiP, etc). + Basic working knowledge of an embedded computer system elements (processor core, cache, memory, etc). + Knowledge of current and emerging nonvolatile technologies is a plus. + Active DOE Security Clearance.
Our Team is responsible for developing, integrating, characterizing, and ensuring the reliability of radiation-hardened microelectronics fabricated in the Microsystems and Engineering Sciences Applications (MESA) facilities. Advanced device development activities are also a significant part of the team's work, focusing on end-of-the roadmap technologies such as resistive memories, optoelectronics, and heterogeneous integration.

Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q-level security clearance. Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted. Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
