CHM Postdoctoral Research Associate Position at NIST CNST

Applicants are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Nanomanufacturing Measurement and Process Control of Diblock Copolymers. The objectives of the research are to develop models to simulate the electromagnetic response of diblock materials as a function of domain size and morphology in both the near- and far-field regimes and to apply those models to the development of non-contact, high-speed, optical measurement methods for nanostructure characterization in roll-to-roll manufacturing.

The project is part of a collaboration between the Center for Hierarchical Manufacturing (CHM) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD. The successful applicant will be employed by UMass while the research will take place primarily at CNST, but it is anticipated that frequent travel between UMass and NIST will be needed to facilitate the collaboration.

The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. degree (or have submitted his/her doctoral thesis) in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, or related fields and have a good track record of research in the interaction of light with nanostructures. A good publication record, experience working in multidisciplinary teams, demonstrated ability for scientific accomplishment with minimal direct guidance, and ability to travel between UMass and NIST are required. Salary will be approximately $60k/year.

Interested candidates should submit a CV, a list of publications, and the names and addresses of three professional references to either postdoc.massnanotech@umass.eduThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
(preferred) or MassNanoTech, c/o Dr. Paul J. Clark, 320 Lederle Graduate Research Tower, University of Massachusetts, 710 N. Pleasant Street, Amherst MA 01003. Please reference Search #36869.

The priority application deadline is September 22, 2010. However, applications will be accepted beyond that date until the position is filled.

The University of Massachusetts is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
Employer. Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply.

The opportunity is excellent.It is useful for nano tech job seekers.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
