Berkeley Lab's Molecular Foundry offers an exciting Postdoctoral position to
work in the area of high throughput synthesis of polymers. The candidate will
explore automated synthesis of structurally defined polymers using a suite of
synthesis and characterization tools to establish a machine-learning guided
high throughput discovery workflow. The candidate will work in the Organic and
Macromolecular Synthesis Facility of the Molecular Foundry, one of the
nation's five Nanoscale Science Research Centers.
What You Will Do:
Plan and perform experiments for the development of a library of monomers
for automated solid-state polymerization.
Implement automation in high throughput synthesis and screening of
Structural characterization of polymer crystals using high throughput
characterization techniques such as X-ray and microelectron diffractions.
Work in a highly collaborative team to help establish a machine-learning
augmented workflow through digitalization of input and output parameters.
Communicate research progress within the group and report results
externally through conference presentations and peer-reviewed
Follow and promote all safety requirements in the Molecular Foundry
What is Required:
Ph.D. (within the last five years) in Chemistry, Polymer Science,
Materials Science, or a related field.
Small molecule and polymer synthesis experience is required.
Structural resolution using X-ray diffraction or transmission electron
microscope is strongly desired.
Experience in high throughput synthesis and/or machine learning is a plus.
Critical analysis and communication skills should be demonstrated through
research publications in peer-reviewed journals.
This is a full-time, two-year, postdoctoral appointment with the
possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing
availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. You must have less
than three years of paid postdoctoral experience.
Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-
Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
