Two Postdoc Positions @ Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC (Posted 21-Apr-2021)


The Advanced Electrochemical Materials Section at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC is seeking qualified and motivated Postdoc candidates with expertise in electrochemistry and materials science. The candidate will support projects aimed at development of NRL-pioneered porous-carbon electrodes for applications in water purification (e.g., capacitive deionization) and energy storage (e.g., Li/Na-S batteries). Experience with fundamental electrochemical measurements, material synthesis and characterization, and fabrication/testing of laboratory-scale devices is desirable. Candidate will work on both individual and team projects in a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment with senior and junior staff scientists, fellow postdocs, and undergraduate interns.

This position requires either U.S. citizenship or permanent residency. General information on NRL Postdoc programs and the Fellowship application process can be found at https://www.nrl.navy.mil/Careers/Post-Docs/.

Interested parties should contact Dr. Jeffrey W. Long by email at jeffrey.long@nrl.navy.mil


The Advanced Electrochemical Section at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC is seeking a postdoc candidate to support a cutting-edge basic research program on Leveraging Nanoscale Phenomena for 3D All Solid-State Batteries. The ideal candidate will have experience/expertise in one or more of the following research areas: solid-state batteries, characterization of OH‒-conducting solid-state electrolytes via electrochemical measurements (either from work on batteries or alkaline exchange-membrane fuel cells), understanding/characterizing transport phenomena of charge/neutral species across nanoscale solid-state electrolytes, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron microscopy, powder X-ray diffraction; experience with initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) is a plus.

The candidate will be an integral part of a dynamic, multidisciplinary research team that includes scientists who pioneered the concept of 3D all solid-state batteries and those with expertise in alkaline batteries, polymer synthesis, solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance, density functional theory/molecular dynamics, and nanoscale thermal/mechanical transport. The postdoc will work closely with this team and with fellow postdocs, junior and senior staff scientists, and undergraduate interns in the Advanced Electrochemical Materials Section.

Applicants MUST be US Citizens or US Permanent Residents. Please contact project lead, Dr. Megan Sassin (megan.sassin@nrl.navy.mil) or Section Head, Dr. Debra Rolison (debra.rolison@nrl.navy.mil) for more information.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow @ University of Brighton, UK (Posted 06-Apr-2021)

A postdoctoral research fellow position is available to work on an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) project, to provide research support to a project that is focused on the development of a drug-eluting in vivo electrochemical probe to monitor age-related lower bowel dysfunction. Within this project we will develop a novel in vivo electrochemical probe to monitor, understand and track age-related changes in the lower bowel function. In order to be successful in this post, you should have a PhD in an aligned subject area associated with electrochemistry, biosensing or bioanalytical chemistry, experience of making and characterising electrochemical sensors, experience of handling and working with animal model systems to conduct bioanalytical measurements and experience of conducting in vivo measurements is highly desirable, as evaluation of the developed probe is a critical part of the proposal.

Deadline for applications is 25th April 2021 Further information and guidance on how to apply can be found at: https://jobs.brighton.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?id=7593&forced=1

Visiting Assistant Professor in Chemistry @ Berry College, (Posted 14-Feb-2021)

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Berry College, an ACS-approved program, invites applications for a visiting assistant professor position (9-month academic year, renewable up to 3 years) to begin in August 2021. Our collegial department of ten faculty members strives for excellence in teaching chemistry and mentoring students from a wide range of backgrounds in a comprehensive college with a liberal arts core. Our department is similarly committed to the training and mentorship of visiting faculty members to help them excel in the classroom. There are also opportunities to participate in collaborative or independent research with undergraduates within our department. This environment has helped previous visiting faculty to apply successfully to tenure-track positions at liberal arts colleges.

Preference will be given to applicants who have completed the Ph.D. requirements in analytical chemistry, or a closely related field, by the time of appointment, but those with a Masters degree and relevant experience will also be considered (as a visiting lecturer). The successful candidate is expected to teach an analytical chemistry course and its laboratory, utilizing the wide variety of instrumentation in our department (including both chromatography and spectroscopy). Additional teaching responsibilities will include general chemistry and associated labs.

The candidate should share our department's commitment to student engagement inside and outside of the classroom, as well as our desire to promote opportunities for students from under-represented groups. Berry is also committed to increasing the diversity of our faculty and staff. We welcome applications from all groups and strongly encourage women and persons of color to apply for this position.
