Post-doctoral research associate
We are looking for post-doctoral associates interested in measurement/instrumentation development of EPR spectroscopy applied to energy and biologically-derived nanomaterials to join us at the Center for Nanoscale Science & Technology (http://cnst.nist.gov) at NIST, a highly interdisciplinary and very well resourced user facility. My laboratory contains a Bruker E580 EPR spectrometer (X-band) as well as a NIST-designed spectrometer (Q-band), both of which are equipped with arbitrary waveform generators for pulse-shaping. UV and visible CW lasers have been interfaced with the instruments to enable photoexcitation of samples. Current work is in the areas of spectroelectrochemical EPR spectroscopy development for solid catalyst materials and nanoscale structural measurements of biomaterials, including DNA-based nanomaterials. The ideal candidate would lead a project that makes use of the CNST nanofabrication capabilities as a means to provide meaningful EPR-based measurements. Typical successful applicants have a strong research background and academic record. Letters of reference are required.
