Conduct and support highly specialized research in analytical nanoscience for energy applications in the Center for Nano and Molecular Science (CNM).
Design and conduct a variety of analytical experiments, synthesizing a range of 0-D, 1-D, 2-D and mesoporous metal and metal oxide nanomaterials with applications toward energy storage and catalysis; characterization of materials using in situ spectroscopic methods such as Raman and FTIR spectroscopy. Conduct electrochemical testing of relevant energy storage and catalyst materials including cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, chronopotentiometry, rotating disk electrochemistry and impedance spectroscopy.
Other related functions as assigned.
Ph.D. in physics, physical or analytical chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, nanoscience or related field, and two years of post-doctoral level experience. Equivalent combination of relevant education and experience may be substituted as appropriate.
Two years of the above mentioned required experience should include one or more years of postdoctoral experience with an emphasis on energy research. Demonstrated experience in independent operation of and data analysis from high-performance instrumentation including TOF-SIMS and XPS. Preferred experience in working on multiple research projects simultaneously in a fast-paced academic research environment.
