3-Year Postdoctoral Fellow: Green Chemistry/Materials Chemistry

The required postdoctoral fellow will play a leading role in performing research leading to high-impact publications in the broad field of materials chemistry/crystal engineering. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to possess strong experimental research skills and ideally some computational materials modelling experience. The right candidate will spend most of their time in the laboratory where he/she will utilize their strong expertise in synthesis (organic or inorganic compounds) and materials chemistry/characterization in order to develop and validate a novel biosurfactant catalyzed mechanochemical remediation method for the green synthetic functionalization and conversion of persistent organic pollutants. In addition to performing research leading to high-impact publications in peer-reviewed materials chemistry journals, the postdoctoral fellow will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of molecular biologists, bioinformatics experts, chemists and chemical engineers in order to facilitate the deliverables of this exciting project.

Experiment 1: Crystal Structure: X - Ray Diffraction

The X-Ray diffraction technique is used to determine the crystal structure and interatomic spacing of crystallinesamples through constructive interference of reflected x-ray beams.

Bragg's Law and X-Ray diffraction data, in combination with the expressions for interatomic spacing in terms of the lattice parameter and Miller indices for acrystal, can be utilized to identify crystal structures, determine lattice constants, and locate defects within astructure.
