A Postdoctoral Researcher position is currently available in the Center for Neutron Science under the Direction of Prof. Norman Wagner, Unidel Robert L. Pigford Chair in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Delaware.
The candidate will be expected to conduct experimental research on microstructure-rheology relationships in soft matter using techniques such as rheology, neutron and light scattering and allied methods of colloid and nanoscience. The research includes the development of new instrumentation under a recently awarded DOE contract, and the use of that instrument as part of an international collaboration investigating structure-property relationships in complex fluids under flow. The candidate must be able to work at the ORNL SNS/HFIR and the NIST Center for Neutron Research, as well as research facilities and universities internationally. The position includes limited administrative duties associated with agency reporting requirements.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in engineering or science with expertise in rheology and/or scattering methods, as well as be familiar with and interested in scientific equipment design and construction. The position is available immediately, is for one year and is renewable, including benefits and a competitive salary based on qualifications. This position is open immediately.
