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.

The candidate is expected to be able to work both independently and cooperatively with a team, and to communicate the research results both orally and in writing. 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.
