Postdoc Positions in Canada: Synthesis and Characterization of Thermoelectric Layered Tellurides

The applicants will investigate high performance thermoelectric materials; one project is co-funded by the Ontario Center of Excellence and General Motors of Canada, the other by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and General Motors of Canada. Both projects are involved with material synthesis and structural characterization via diffraction, physical property measurements and SEM/TEM studies.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Solid State Chemistry/Physics or similar discipline. Experience with synthesis and characterization of materials is required. An understanding of transport properties including thermal conductivity, thermopower, and electrical conductivity in (degenerate) semiconductors is desired. The appointments are initially for a one-year period, ideally beginning early 2008, and may be renewed in one-year increments.

Waterloo is located in beautiful Southern Ontario, one hour southwest of the metropolis Toronto. Please contact the lead investigator via email, including your cv:
