Position Information

Job Title Postdoctoral Research Associate
Job Description

The Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory, a world-renowned center for study of radiation chemistry, has an opening for an experimental surface scientist in a postdoctoral position. Our interdisciplinary team of chemists and physicists probe the basic science underpinning the effects of radiation across a broad range of non-medical applications, including nuclear power generation, high-energy materials characterization, and industrial processing.

For this position, we seek excellent and highly motivated candidates with a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or related discipline with strong expertise in surface science. The successful candidate will be focused on characterization of electronic and chemical structures of
electrolyte/semiconductor interfaces and other energy-related materials. During the course of the project, it is expected that the candidate will demonstrate experience in materials characterization, using x-ray and UV photoelectron and FTIR spectroscopic methods in addition to low-energy
electron diffraction, as well as on the development of these techniques. Experience in either lab- or synchrotron-based (near) ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy is a requirement.

This is a full-time, 1-year appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.

Minimum Qualifications

PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or related discipline with strong expertise in surface science. The candidate is expected to be able to work both independently and cooperatively with a team, and to communicate research results both orally and in writing.
