Postdoctoral Associate. The Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology 
Facility (CNF) and the Department of Communication at Cornell University 
seek a Ph.D. level postdoctoral associate (1) to conduct research on the 
social and ethical implications (SEI) of nanotechnology, and (2) to 
coordinate activities within the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure 
Network (NNIN) _http://www.nnin.org_. The position presents an exciting 
opportunity for an early career researcher. Working alongside the SEI

with SEI coordinators at NNIN sites, and helping to organize annual 
meetings and workshops for SEI coordinators.

Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in communication, science and 
technology studies, or closely aligned social scientific field. Research 
experience and knowledge of social and ethical issues of science, 
preferably nanotechnology, is preferred.

This is a one-year position, which includes a competitive salary and 
benefits package. A second year is possible and conditioned upon 
availability of resources and merit. Applications will be reviewed 
beginning October 1, 2008 until the position is filled. The start date 
is flexible, but ideally the associate will start by January 2009. Women 
and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.

To apply, send a cover letter addressing position qualifications and 
goals, curriculum vita, proof of degree, one writing sample, names and
