Post doc on high temperature thermoelectrics at Case Western Reserve University


Thermoelectric Processing and Characterization The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Case Western Reserve University seeks qualified applicants for a post-doc position. Candidates should have expertise in material processing and microstructural characterization. Successful candidates shall have a PhD or equivalent degree with strong credentials in material science and engineering or related disciplines, plus demonstrated ability to conduct independent research. Applicant will be expected to conduct original research in multi-functional materials that exhibit thermoelectric behavior. Applicants should show understanding of electronic structure of materials, have experience in all levels of processing and be able to develop novel thermoelectric materials for aeronautics and aerospace applications. Advanced skills with characterization tools for determination of structure-property relationships at high temperatures are required. Experience with impedance analysis and Seebeck measurements, as well as HRTEM, SEM and XRD is expected. Expertise with mechanical property measurements are preferred but not required. The work will be performed in collaboration with NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH, and that will be the primary work location. Published evidence of scientific stature is expected. The ability to work in groups and to start new and/or develop existing collaborations is essential. Compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and years of experience. For full consideration, applicant should send their curriculum vitae, statement of research and the names and addresses of at least three references to Dr. Alp Sehirlioglu, Case Western Reserve University ( Qualified applications will be reviewed without regard to race, religion, age, gender or national origin.
