Postdoctoral position: nanoparticle synthesis, Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM

Via C&EN Jobs: 

Are you interested in collaborating with leaders in the field of nanoparticles synthesis and characterization? In this role, you will have the opportunity to research methods for controlling nanoparticle size, shape, and properties during wet chemical synthesis. In addition to traditional approaches to synthesis you may explore microfluidic synthesis, artificial intelligence guided synthesis, novel heating methods, and assembly of unique nanocomposite structures. You will have an opportunity to explore many classes of nanomaterials, but it is likely that magnetic and catalytic nanoparticles will be a focus. On any given day, you may be called on to:
  • Develop new approaches to synthesize nanomaterials.
  • Characterize the resultant structures using multiple techniques.
  • Collaborate with a broad, interdisciplinary team at Sandia and around the world.
  • Communicate results through high impact journals as well as through conference presentations.
Qualifications We Require:
  • PhD, conferred within the past five years, in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, or a related discipline.
  • Significant experience in the synthesis of nanomaterials.
  • Record of technical achievement as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications.
Qualifications We Desire:
  • Experience with nanoparticle characterization including: Electron microscopy (TEM, STEM, EDS), small angle X-ray scattering, light scattering, and X-ray diffraction.
  • Experience with microfluidic systems.
  • Experience measuring catalytic properties of nanomaterials.
  • Experience measuring the magnetic properties of nanomaterials.
