Postdoctoral Research Associate : Stem For Quantum Materials

Details of the offer

Requisition Id2899 Overview: We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to advance electron microscopy research quantum materials at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). In this role, you will use scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) to study the physics of materials behavior at the atomic: and nm:scales. A particular focus of your research will be to understand the interactions between the crystalline lattice, charge, and atoms in the materials by utilizing electron energy:loss spectroscopy (EELS) and 4D:STEM methods. You will work as part of a team of scientists with expertise in synthesis, theoretical calculations, and other characterization techniques such as neutron scattering and scanning tunneling microscopy at ORNL. This position resides within the Electron and Atom Probe Microscopy Group at the CNMS, in the Physical Sciences Directorate (PSD) at ORNL.

Your research will focus on understanding the interactions and excitations in quantum materials using aberration:corrected STEM:based imaging and spectroscopy coupled with innovative in situ cooling and/or biasing methods. Microscopy results revealing the structure, chemistry, and charge distributions in materials at the atomic:to:nanometer levels will be further linked with macroscopic measurements of physical properties acquired via other characterization methods and you will work in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team. The project heavily utilizes aberration:correlated STEMs equipped with a pixelated detector and/or a monochromator. 4D:STEM and EELS will be utilized in this project.

Major Duties/Responsibilities

:

Conduct materials research using aberration:corrected STEM and EELS
:

Utilize 4D:STEM and advance related data analysis methods
:

Integrate multi:dimensional data with in situ cooling and biasing platforms
:

Collaborate with project team members within and outside ORNL
:

present and report research results and publishing scientific results in peer:reviewed journals in a timely manner
:

Ensure compliance with environment, safety, health and quality program requirements
:

Maintain strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics

Basic Qualifications

:

A Ph.D. in physics, materials science and engineering, chemistry, or a closely related discipline completed within the last five years
:

Background and hands:on experience in STEM imaging

Preferred Qualifications:

:

Background in aberration:corrected STEM and EELS
:

Background in Python, C++ or Matlab
:

An excellent record of productive and creative research shown by publications in peer:reviewed journals
:

Excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to communicate in English to an international scientific audience
:

Ability to work well in a dynamic research environment, set priorities to accomplish multiple tasks within deadlines, and adapt to ever:changing needs

Special Requirements:

Applicants cannot have received their Ph.D. more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. The appointment length will be up to 24 months with the potential for extension. Initial appointments and extensions are subject to performance and availability of funding.

Please provide a list of publications when applying for this position. Three letters of reference are required and can be uploaded to your profile or emailed directly to Please include the title of the position in the subject line.

This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or hired.

We accept Word (.doc, .docx), Adobe (unsecured .pdf), Rich Text Format (.rtf), and HTML (.htm, .html) up to 5MB in size. Resumes from third party vendors will not be accepte
