Introduction

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.

Job description

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

  • synthesizing magnetic particles and establishing chemical attachment protocols,
  • participating in SANS experiments and data analysis,
  • developing the technique of magnetic tagging to reconstruct 3D structures from SANS, and
  • presenting and publishing results in scientific conferences and in the literature.
    The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable for a second year subject to performance. Salary is in the range from $60,000 to $65,000, depending on qualifications and experience.
