POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE), to apply advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques to the development of new battery chemistries as part of the groups of professors Frances Ross and Yet-Ming Chiang. Will join a group of faculty, students, and postdocs with microscopy, materials processing, and electrochemical capabilities and a broad interest in using in situ electron microscopy to understand dynamic materials phenomena through video-rate observations. Will lead a project to examine microstructural changes in battery electrodes during cycling through a combination of electrochemical liquid cell transmission electron microscopy and benchtop electrochemical measurements. A focus of the project is to obtain quantitative data with relevance to the development of new materials combinations for practical rechargeable batteries.
REQUIRED: Ph.D. in materials science or related field, excellent communication skills, the ability to carry out an independent research program, and willingness to mentor and train graduate students. PREFERRED: experience with liquid cell electron microscopy and electrochemical measurement techniques. Job #20183
The position is available immediately and applications will be considered until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, candidates should apply by October 31, 2021.
