    Position description

    Postdoctoral research position in Analyses of Biological and Biomimetic Materials Employer: University of California, Irvine Application Deadline: Open Until Filled Anticipated Position Duration: 1 – 2 years

    Job Description: Postdoctoral research positions opening in the area of biomimetics and biological composite materials. We are a research group investigating ultrastructure-mechanical property relationships in biological materials with the ultimate goal of producing strong and tough composites. The research is at the intersection of materials science, chemistry, biology and mechanics.

    The projects specifically involve the ultrastructural (i.e., microscopic and spectroscopic) analyses, as well as mechanical testing of biological materials. Extensive experience with transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is required.

    This position requires a Ph.D. in Materials Science or closely related field. In addition, experience working with nano-microstructural analyses of biological composites and biominerals is desirable. This includes extensive expertise with SEM, FIB, TEM, Raman and FTIR. Additional merit will be considered for those with polymer / fiber synthesis experience and mechanical testing. Strong oral and writing skills are required. Selection will place emphasis on expertise, experience and previous publication record. A great opportunity to pursue highly interdisciplinary science and have an opportunity to interact with PIs and researchers with diverse scientific backgrounds.
