Post Doc Position Available - Ankara, Turkey

Postdoctoral position open in the area of synthesis and in-situ characterization of nano-composite coatings at Bilkent University, Department of Chemistry,
Ankara Turkey

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
physics
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
graduate
and undergraduate students.

Preferred starting date: September,
2010.

How to apply: Email your

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 editor@nanopaprika.eu
