Multiple Post-Doctoral Positions in Advanced Synthesis and Characterization at Rice University

Rouzbeh1's picture

Position Description: Multiple postdoctoral associate positions in the area of advanced synthesis and nano/micro-scale characterization of nanoparticles and nanocomposites are available at Rice University. Various techniques will be applied to synthesize and self-assemble size- and shape-controlled (calcium) silicate-polymer nanoparticles followed by nano- and micro-characterizations including a myriad of probes such as electron microscopies (TEM, XRD, SEM, AFM), ICP, XPS, NMR, porosimetry, dynamic mechanical analysis, nanoindentation, etc. to examine several structural and physical properties along with response mechanisms at high temperatures, high pressures and extreme chemical conditions.

The research will be carried out at Rice University’s Department of Materials Science and NanoEngineering, Department of Chemistry and Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The successful candidates will work in a highly inter-disciplinary and stimulating environment.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering or a related field is required. The candidates should have well-developed experimental skills. Candidates with a strong background and motivation in organic/inorganic chemistry, wet chemistry, self-assembly, nanoparticle/nanocomposite synthesis and characterizations are highly encouraged to apply. Good written and spoken communication skills are expected. 

How to apply: Please send a CV, three representative publications, and contact information of three references to Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. For any questions, please contact Dr. Rouzbeh Shahsavari:
