A new Energy Frontier Research Center for the study of Fluid Interface Reactions, Structure and Transport (FIRST) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/first/index.shtml) is seeking a post-doctoral associate to work on a research project in Scanning Probe Microscopies of electrochemically-active materials. The research will
involve electrochemical and electromechanical studies of kinetics, thermodynamics, and mechanisms of local electrochemical processes at conducting and semiconducting surfaces in ambient environment, aqueous
and non-aqueous solution. The research will be conducted in collaboration with other members of the FIRST Center in which experimental studies will be integrated with theory, modeling, and simulation. The expected product of this research is a spatially resolved picture of electrochemical process in real space, which then both serve as an input for macroscopic studies, and allows to link defect and microstructure to functionality on mesoscopic and atomic levels. The research will take advantage of unique set of SPM tools developed at ORNL for the characterization of electrical, transport, and dynamic properties of materials, including band excitation scanning probe microscopy and multimodal switching spectroscopy measurements. The ORNL group has a strong publication record including multiple publications in high-profile journals, and offers an interdisciplinary and exciting atmosphere of scientific discovery and exploration in the area of nanoscale phenomena and functionality by SPM.

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
