This position is located in the Department of Chemistry (http://kleinke.uwaterloo.ca) and the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (https://uwaterloo.ca/institute-nanotechnology), with excellent working conditions for both solid state synthesis and thermoelectric materials characterization. The University of Waterloo, housing 35,000 students, is located in the heart of Canada's Technology Triangle in Southern Ontario.
This is a generally funded position without restrictions, so the exact area is open for discussion. It is hoped that the postdoc will co-supervise grad students during my intermittent absences. The position - open now until filled - will be with a competitive salary, initially for one year but with the option for a second year if both parties agree.
The ideal candidate is very independent and knowledgeable, as demonstrated by publications, with experience in synthetic solid state methods, diffraction methods, physical property measurements, electronic structure calculations and electron microscopy.
Please email your application to Prof. Kleinke, which should include:
1) Your CV
2) Summary of your relevant research projects
3) Publication list
4) Names and email addresses of three referees
