The Rabuffetti group at Wayne State University (http://www.rabuffettigroup.wayne.edu) has an open postdoctoral position in inorganic nanomaterials chemistry. This research project aims to establish principles to guide the discovery and design of luminescent nanothermometers for applications that range from biosensing to sustainable energy conversion. The project involves two major tasks: (1) solution-phase synthesis of thermosensitive, light-emitting nanocrystals; and (2) systematic investigation and understanding of their temperature-dependent luminescence response.
- Ph.D. in inorganic, physical inorganic, or materials chemistry.
- experience in solution-phase synthesis of colloidal nanocrystals as documented by peer-reviewed publications.
- experience with photoluminescence data collection and analysis (time-resolved, variable-temperature) as documented by peer-reviewed publications.
- excellent command of analytical techniques such as elemental analysis, transmission electron microscopy, and powder X-ray diffraction.
- willingness to learn and bridge knowledge/experience gaps.
- strong written communication skills.
Interested candidates should send Prof. Rabuffetti (email@example.com) (1) a one-page cover letter detailing relevant research experience, research interest, goals and expectations for the position, and preferred start date; and (2) a curriculum vitae including a list of publications and contact information for three references.
Best wishes to those interested.
