We are seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in the area of carbon/polymer nanocomposites at the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Center for Neutron Research, Gaithersburg, MD.   The aim of the work is to understand and control the microstructures and dispersion by studying the self assembly of carbon nanoparticles.  The primary tools will be Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) as well as Neutron Reflectometry (NR) and quasi-elastic neutron scattering techniques.  Significant opportunities exist for a highly motivated candidate to provide new directions.  Candidates must have a PhD in a Physical Science, excellent experimental skills, and good communication skills. Experience in x-ray or neutron scattering techniques is desirable but not essential. 

Appointment will be for two years with the possibility of extension.  Salary is in the range from $58,000 to $65,000 depending on qualifications and experience.

The deadline for the application is March 21, 2012.
