A leading American chemist, working in the field of molecular scale electronics, has been enticed to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to continue his groundbreaking research on new microelectronic platforms.
A leading American chemist, working in the field of molecular scale electronics, has been enticed to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to continue his groundbreaking research on new microelectronic platforms. "I am excited about coming to a place that puts such a high priority on research and development," said McCreery. "I was not looking to leave Ohio, but the situation and opportunities here were hard to resist."
Dr. Richard McCreery has relocated to Alberta from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Coming north to continue his research in Edmonton at NRC's National Institute for Nanotechnology (NINT) as a Principal Researcher and Ingenuity Scholar, he will also teach chemistry at the University of Alberta.
McCreery's research will investigate the behaviour of molecules or single molecular layers as electronic circuit components, with the goal of developing new technology platforms for microelectronics. Molecular circuit components are potentially more versatile than existing microelectronics, and may lead to reduced cost and lower power consumption.
Gregory Taylor, Dean of Science at the University of Alberta is thrilled that McCreery will be a Professor in the Department of Chemistry, "Not only will we benefit from Dr. McCreery's innovative and extensive research program, but he will be instrumental in integrating research into the learning environment to enhance the undergraduate and graduate student experience".
McCreery's research and academic efforts will be supported during the next five years by a total of $4.5 million in funding from the National Research Council ($2.5 million), the Alberta Ingenuity Fund ($1 million) and the University of Alberta ($1 million).
In welcoming the fellow chemist, Nils Petersen, Director General of NINT, said, "Our ability to recruit an established scientist like Rick McCreery shows that partnership between the National Research Council, the University of Alberta and the Government of Alberta can compete in attracting research excellence in strategically important areas."
