Nanofluidic technology enables the manipulation and measurement of materials and phenomena in fluids at the nanoscale. Our project leads the development of innovative nanofluidic devices, methods, and measurement science at NIST, with diverse applications ranging from the on-chip characterization of nanoparticles to fundamental studies in soft matter science. Our research in nanofluidics dovetails with quantitative approaches to single molecule analysis and is closely supported by numerical simulations. Our project is collaborative and interdisciplinary, and we seek motivated applicants with diverse backgrounds in the physical sciences and engineering.
