The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) at Argonne National Laboratory has an immediate postdoctoral position opening. The position is funded for one year and renewable for up to two years (subject to available funding and performance evaluation). The prospective researcher will be expected to lead an effort to develop single particle tracking, optical imaging velocimetry and superresolution optical microscopy with the goal of targeting applications to microfluidic analysis. The successful candidate will collaborate with other scientists and postdoctoral researchers at CNM in contributing to the development of a cutting-edge experimental facility to explore complex fluids in confined environment, develop single particle laser spectroscopies, and meet the diagnostic needs of Argonne’s nano-manufacturing initiative.
The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate:
A strong experimental background in optical characterization of single nanoparticle and/complex fluids.
Excellent experience and capability in laser/optical instrumentation.
Excellent written/oral communications and data analysis skills.
Strong skills in collaboration and ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
Additional expertise in programming for data analysis, nanofabrication, and instrumentation is beneficial.
