[SA_scat] Postdoc position Ames Laboratory

*Postdoctoral Research Associate  in Ames Laboratory*

*X-ray and neutron scattering from soft condensed matter*

A postdoctoral research position in X-ray and neutron scattering from 
soft condensed matter is now available at Ames Laboratory, at Iowa State

University in Ames, Iowa. The research is focused on the structure of 
bio-inspired materials, such as those obtained by bio-mineralization. 
The scattering group is part of an interdisciplinary effort to unravel 
the mechanism by which bio-inspired functionalized templates 
(lipid-membrane, proteins, bio-polymers, etc..) induce crystal growth 
and morphology from salt solutions. The scattering studies involve 
structural determinations of the final products and in-situ growth 
intermediates. In the past, the scattering group has been involved in 
studying ion-distributions at charged interfaces, interfacial and bulk 
structure of ionic liquids, polyelectrolyte-surfactant systems, 
protein-lipid interactions and other topics in soft condensed matter 
physics. The postdoc will employ surface sensitive synchrotron X-ray and

neutron scattering (reflectivity, GIXD, SANS, and SAXS, WAXD) and 
spectroscopic techniques.

Interested applicants should have a PhD degree in physics, or related 
area with some experience in scattering techniques. Applicants should 
send their applications, including two letters of recommendations, by 
e-mail to Dr. David Vaknin at vaknin@ameslab.gov
