The Institute for Functional Nanomaterials (IFN) brings together 49 active research nano scientists and engineers, from four campuses in Puerto Rico, into three thematically coherent research clusters: Functional Dispersed Nanostructures (Cluster I), Functional Nanostructures at the Interface (Cluster II), and Multifunctional Nanostructures (Cluster III).
OPEN POST-DOCTORAL POSITION AT THE ENGINEERING SCIENCE AND MATERIALS DEPARTMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PUERTO RICO – MAYAGUEZ
A Ph.D. level research position is available in nanotechnology to conduct research for isotope separation using cavitation and asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation techniques. Candidates will have experience in performing independent research investigations and effective personal skills to report to sponsors. Expertise in solid state physics, computational ab-initio methods, transmission electron microscopy and mass spectrometry is required. Prior experience in setting up and maintaining cavitation technology and asymmetric flow field-flow fractionation equipment is desired. Salaries are competitive. Length of appointment is anticipated to be 1 year with extension dependent on progress. Applications consisting of a cover letter, a comprehensive C.V. including the names and contact details of three referees should be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
