The postdoctoral researcher will conduct investigations of thermoelectric materials using neutron scattering, in collaboration with the S3TEC Energy Frontier Research Center (http://s3tec.mit.edu/ ).
Recent Ph.D. in Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, or related fields will be considered. Demonstrated expertise in materials physics is required and experience with neutron and/or x-ray scattering is highly desirable. Knowledge about thermodynamic and transport properties, phonons, or computer simulations of microscopic dynamics will be an advantage.
Strong written and oral communication skills and the desire to work in a team environment on scientifically challenging problems are required. The successful candidate will conduct research at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and make use of the Spallation Neutron Source, the High Flux Isotope Reactor and other neutron/x-ray. Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment.
Questions regarding the position can be directed to Olivier Delaire at email@example.com. Please include the requisition number and title when corresponding.
