|Postdoctoral Research Position – Corrosion Science and Electrochemistry ISP / Applied Sciences Laboratory (ASL), Spokane
Washington State University
The Spokane-based Applied Sciences Laboratory (ASL) of the Institute for Shock Physics (ISP) has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to undertake research in corrosion science and surface electrochemistry. We are looking for a creative, self-motivated experimentalist who has the ability and desire to pursue solutions to challenging, interdisciplinary problems in a fast-paced research environment.The successful candidate is expected to have a thorough knowledge of in-situ measurement of localized corrosion processes and a strong background in corrosion, materials and surface chemistry research. Only applicants who are currently in the U.S. and meet the following minimum qualifications will be considered for the position:
• A very recent Ph.D. degree in Chemistry, Materials Science, or Chemical Engineering
The ability and interest to pursue challenging, interdisciplinary problems and to deliver proof-of-concept results are essential. Individuals with a strong desire to work in applied research within a contract research organization, and who are comfortable working within a milestone-driven project-management environment are encouraged to apply. This is an ideal position for a creative, self-motivated individual who can work with both industry and academic environments.
The ISP’s Applied Sciences Laboratory provides excellent opportunity for growth and professional success. The salary structure is nationally competitive. Other benefits include health/dental insurance, vacation/medical leave, retirement plans, and access to all University facilities. This position is located in Spokane, Washington.

|Employer:||THE INSTITUTE FOR SHOCK PHYSICS
A multidisciplinary research organization within the College of Sciences, ISP undertakes a broad range of fundamental scientific activities related to understanding condensed matter response under dynamic and static high pressures. Washington State University has a long and distinguished history of conducting research in shock wave science. In 1997, the Institute was established by the Department of Energy (DOE) to ensure a strong, long-term academic base for the DOE’s national security mission.
Atomic-to-continuum level understanding is the pervading theme of research activities that emphasize integration of innovative experiments with theoretical and computational advances. Multidisciplinary efforts that combine expertise in Physics, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Chemistry are underway to address several exciting and challenging scientific problems. In addition to the research faculty within the Institute, students and faculty from several departments within the Colleges of Science and Engineering participate in the Institute’s research projects. Excellent research interactions are in place with the DOE / NNSA National Laboratories: Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, and Sandia.
