NIST, Gaithersburg, MD, USA
Applications are invited for an experimental, condensed matter postdoctoral research associate position at the National Institute of Standard and Technology (Gaithersburg, MD campus) in cooperation with the University of Maryland, College Park. The scope of this research project is to develop a novel small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) magnetic tagging-scheme that would allow objects (nanoparticles, proteins, polymers, micelles, etc.) to be unambiguously “imaged” in 3D, spanning the nanoscale up to the micron scale. This position is fully funded for an immediate hire, and US citizenship is NOT a requirement.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics or a related field. Experience involving nanoparticle synthesis, functionalization of surfaces for biomedical applications, and familiarity with magnetic materials are especially favored. Duties of this position include
To apply, please send your resume, including a statement of research interests, to Dr. Kathryn Krycka at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include the names of three references that would be willing to provide recommendation letters.
