Postdoctoral position available at University of Pennsylvania (USA)

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Prof. R.W.
Carpick, University of Pennsylvania
A strong background in Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science,
Physics, or Chemistry is required. The research will focus on the
nano-scale study of anti-wear films formed in lubricated steel contacts
and involves a collaboration with Exxon Mobil.

Strong experience with AFM is required. Working knowledge of other
scanning probes, surface science techniques, electron microscopy, and
tribotesting is desired.

The appointment will be for at least one year, renewable annually for up
to three years. The position includes competitive salary and benefits.
Applicants should e-mail an application containing a resume, a
publication list, up to three peer-reviewed publications, and the
contact information of three references, to:

Nice to see about Postdoc position at Pennsylvania.

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
