DCG seeks postdoc to study radiation damage of metallic materials

Posted in News on December 15th, 2010 by admin – Comments Off on DCG seeks postdoc to study radiation damage of metallic materials

The Dynamic Characterization Group at Drexel University seeks to hire a candidate for the position of Post-Doctoral Research Associate. The successful applicant will be primarily responsible for studying microstructure-dependent radiation damage in metallic systems. The individual will participate in grant writing, publication preparation, and oral presentations as well as support additional projects within the group.

A qualified applicant will possess a Ph.D. in materials science, nuclear engineering, condensed matter physics, or a related field. The desired candidate will be proficient in electron microscopy, particularly TEM (e.g. HRTEM, STEM/EDS, EELS, in-situ) and SEM (e.g. EBSD, FIB). Familiarity with radiation damage and experimental radiation techniques, atom probe, and corrosion testing techniques is beneficial. United States citizenship is preferred.
