Postdoctoral position open in the area of synthesis and in-situ characterization of nano-composite coatings at Bilkent University, Department of Chemistry,
Period of employment and compensation: The initial contract period corresponds to twelve months from the starting date, can be expanded
upon mutual agreement. Total package involves monthly salary, on-campus
private housing, lunch tickets and private health insurance.
Job description: The postdoctoral associate will work in the group that focuses on development of new nano-composite materials for several
hi-tech applications, such as bio-functional coatings, ultra-hard/erosion
resistant coating applications. PD will be also closely collaborating with theoretical
and surface science groups.
Qualifications: PhD in
physics, chemistry, material science, engineering or equivalent
scientific discipline. Projects will require hands-on experience in vacuum
technology (HV and UHV) and magnetron sputter deposition technique, skills in the use
of surface characterization techniques such as XPS, AES, ATR-FTIR etc, and familiarity in hardness and other thin film properties measurement
techniques. In addition, post doc is expected to be efficient at scientific and personal communication: writing papers,
making conference presentations, and participating in training and mentoring
and undergraduate students.
