Postdoctoral PositionNational Institute of Standards and TechnologyGaithersburg, MDA postdoctoral opportunity is available to join a collaborative research team developing a novel neutron interferometric phase imaging instrument that will enable the characterization of local nanostructure in heterogeneous materials. This instrument will enable unprecedented understanding in materials as diverse as blood clots, concrete, batteries, tissue scaffolding and 3D printed materials.This opportunity involves the synthesis and characterization of a stable gadolinium oxide nanoparticle suspension and integration of the suspension into a microfluidic device component of the new instrument. In addition to device development, a successful candidate will have ample opportunity to engage in soft materials and complex fluids research on both collaborative and independent projects. Because our team is interested in studying a broad range of material types, this position affords a great deal of independence and flexibility with respect to project direction. To this end, applicants should prepare a statement of research interests that specifically highlights how you would utilize SANS and other neutron characterization methods in the course of your research.Successful candidates will have a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or related fields. Experience with designing microfluidic devices, synthesis and functionalization of nanoparticles and/or small angle scattering is desirable but not required.To apply please send an electronic copy of your resume, references and brief research statement (not to exceed one page) to:
