…we could track and repair individual cells deep inside the body?
…we could build an environmental lab inside of a raindrop?
…we could nano-engineer batteries to make fossil fuels obsolete?
…we could create nanoscale machines as easily as we build electronic circuits?
NEXT is a multi-year interdisciplinary program at Cornell created to push nanoscale science and microsystems engineering to the next level of design, function and integration.
- Approx. 10 targeted senior hires across campus in NEXT-relevant fields
- Searches are overseen by an interdisciplinary, cross-college committee
- Labs will be co-located in clusters across campus
- The Kavli Institute at Cornell and the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility provide infrastructure, seed funding, and postdoctoral fellow support
Our goal of hiring 10 outstanding nano/micro focused faculty members in the next five years is just the first of the NEXT Initiatives at Cornell. Join us in building the future!
