Nano-TE Postdoc at Univ. of South Florida


A postdoctoral position in experimental Materials Physics is available
in the Novel Materials Laboratory in the Department of Physics at the
University of South Florida. The position focuses on the synthesis,
structural and chemical characterization and physical properties
measurements of bulk nanocomposites for thermoelectric applications.
Experience with synthesis of nanocrystals, solution-phase and other
techniques, is necessary as well as densification and transport
measurements on bulk materials. Excellent communication skills (oral and
written) are necessary as daily interaction with students and researcher
scientists in a group environment, as well as written reports and oral
presentations, is typical. The ability to set-up and maintain laboratory
equipment is also required.  The position also requires expansion of the
current synthesis techniques and materials at the Novel Materials Lab
for nano-enhanced bulk thermoelectric materials research. A Ph.D. in
Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science is required.

Applicants should include a short statement outlining their match with
the above requirements, and attach research accomplishments, resume,
list of publications, list of conference presentations and at least four
references to an e-mail with the phrase "nano position ITS" in the
subject to
