KIC Postdoctoral Fellows

Dr. Shuolong Yang, PhD Stanford University (Applied Physics)

Shuolong’s research will focus on engineering quantum materials at an atomic scale, and probing their electronic properties. He is specifically interested in realizing novel superconducting states at material interfaces. Prof. Kyle Shen (Physics) and Prof. Darrell Schlom (Materials Science & Engineering) are Shuolong’s faculty sponsors.

Dr. Menyoung Lee, PhD Stanford University (Experimental Condensed Matter Physics)

menyoungMenyoung’s research will focus on novel two-dimensional electron systems, and will explore their interactions with the environment and with each other. Professor Paul McEuen (Physics) is Menyoung’s faculty sponsor.

 

Dr. Marc Miskin, University of Chicago (Experimental Physics-Materials)

Marc’s research will focus on self-folding membranes based on 2D materials, ultimately building folded nanomachines that operate autonomously. His faculty sponsors are Professors Itai Cohen and Paul McEuen (Physics).

 

Dr. Lei Wang, PhD Columbia University (Physics)

Lei WangLei’s research will explore the electronic transport properties and optical response and 2D layered material heterostructures. Professor Paul McEuen (Physics), Professor Jiwoong Park (Chemistry) and Professor Farhan Rana (Engineering) are Lei’s faculty sponsors.

 

Dr. Long Ju, PhD University of California, Berkeley (Physics)

Long’s research will combine optical and electrical measurement techniques to explore the Valley Hall effect in bilayer graphene. Professors Paul McEuen, Dan Ralph (Physics) and Jiwoong Park (Chemistry) are Long’s faculty sponsors.

 

Dr. Samuel Schmidt, PhD Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, The Netherlands (Glycomics)- expected start date November, 2017

Samuel’s research will focus on uncovering the molecular details of how the cell surface gylcan layer (glycocalyx) adheres to nanometer-scale structure, e.g. collagen fibers in the extracellular matrix. Professors Matthew Paszek (Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) and  Jan Lammerding (Biomedical Engineering) are Samuel’s faculty sponsors.

 

Dr. Xiaoxiao Zhang, PhD Columbia University (Physics) – expected start date January, 2018

Xiaoxiao’s research will focus on probing the light-matter interactions in low-dimensional materials, and specifically exploring the excitonic responses of nanomaterials. Her faculty sponsors will be Professors Kin Fai Mak (LASSP) and Jie Shan (AEP), who are also scheduled to join KIC in January, 2018.

    KIC Postdoctoral Fellows Program:

    Funding Opportunities

    KIC postdoctoral fellows are high-profile, two-year postdoctoral positions with significant independence and resources. The KIC Fellows program is designed to attract the best and brightest young researchers in nanoscale science to Cornell. They will have access to the unparalleled resources and faculty available at Cornell in nanoscale science and technology. Fellows will work in partnership with Cornell faculty sponsors on projects consistent with the KIC mission.
