Postdoctoral researcher position / Surface chemistry

Updated: 4 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 01 Sep 2020

We are looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral researcher with experience in surface chemistry. The candidate should have a strong background in surface engineering and surface characterization methods. Candidates with previous experience in the engineering of functional materials employing layer-by-layer (LbL) methods are specially encouraged to apply.

Your tasks

• Synthesis of functional crystalline materials and patterns on surfaces

• Study of their self-assembly and growth using microfluidic devices

• Characterization of the materials produced by a wide range of diffraction, spectroscopy and microscopy techniques, and other physicochemical tools.

• Publication of results in scientific journals and presentation at international conferences

Your profile

• PhD Degree in Materials Science and Engineering

• Skills and expertise in organic synthesis and surface chemistry

• Experience with surface characterization methods (atomic force microscopy (AFM), ellipsometry, Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), quartz-crystal microbalance (QCM), among others).

• Experience with programming (e.g. Matlab, Python) is welcome, but not required.

• Good knowledge of English
