Postdoctoral position: Hydrothermal atomic force microscopy development (position #4791)

Carrick M. Eggleston, Center for Photoconversion and Catalysis at the University of Wyoming, seeks a postdoctoral research scientist with expertise in AFM and development of new AFM technology. The goal of the NSF-funded project is to develop a pressurized fluid cell system enabling in-situ AFM imaging at 200°C and 20 bars pressure in support of materials stability and properties studies. The system will use photothermal cantilever drive. We seek creative, self-motivated individuals with the ability and interest to pursue challenging interdisciplinary problems in a fast-paced research and development environment. Requirements for consideration include:
-A Ph.D. degree in Physics, Materials Science, or a closely related field.
-Strong academic and research background in physics/materials science (or related field) applicable to design and implementation of pressurized in-situ AFM.
-Preference for candidates with hands-on experimental experience with AFM and AC imaging modes.
-Demonstrated excellent communication skills, both oral and written.
-Demonstrated aptitude for critical thinking, good judgment, self-motivation, attention to detail, and accountability.
-Candidates must be legally able to work in the United States at the time of application.
Please direct inquiries and applications in electronic form to Carrick M. Eggleston, Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wyoming, Department 3006, Laramie, WY, 82071; carrick@uwyo.edu. Applications referencing position #4791 must include a CV, a statement of research interests and experience addressing the criteria listed above and giving a date of availability, and the names and contact information of at least 3 referees who can provide a letter of recommendation upon request.
