Engineering and Technology: Materials, Health and Medicine: Imaging, Physics: Materials
There is an opening for a post-doctoral scholar in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (http://engineering.jhu.edu/materials/) and the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (http://hemi.jhu.edu) at Johns Hopkins University.
The general area of interest is x-ray phase-contrast imaging (XPCI), with an emphasis on high-speed imaging studies of deformation and failure of materials under dynamic loading. Research will include experimental studies using synchrotron sources and a novel high-brightness source under construction for our laboratory. A strong emphasis will be placed on novel computational and theoretical approaches for extraction of quantitative structural information from dynamic XPCI images.
Experience with experimental, theoretical, and/or computational aspects of x-ray phase contrast imaging, or coherent optics more generally, is required. The strongest candidates for this position will also have experience with time-resolved studies of materials using synchrotron radiation or dynamic failure of materials.
Candidates for this position must have an earned doctorate in physics, materials science, or a related field. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Todd Hufnagel (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information. To apply please send a single PDF containing a résumé or CV, copies of two relevant publications, and the names and contact information of three references to Prof. Hufnagel at email@example.com.
Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Johns Hopkins University is an EEO/AA employer.
