Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Nanospectroscopy
University of Oxford
We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Nanospectroscopy to join Prof. Jin-Chong Tan’s group (Multifunctional Materials & Composites Laboratory: https: // eng.ox.ac.uk/mmclab/) in the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford. The post is funded by the ERC Consolidator Grant “PROMOFS” and is fixed-term for 18 months and available immediately.
The research will focus on the application of scattering-type scanning nearfield optical microscopy (s-SNOM) to study nanoscale framework materials and composite structures engineered for photonics, sensors, and energy harvesters. Nanoanalytical techniques employed will encompass a combination of tip force microscopy (TFM) and nano-Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy (nanoFTIR).
You should hold a PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in materials engineering / materials science / spectroscopy, or related subjects. The applicant must be able to demonstrate a high level of competence in the application of s-SNOM, nanoFTIR, and nearfield nanoanalytical methods such as TFM.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Tan (email: jin- firstname.lastname@example.org)
Only online applications received before midday on 17th August 2022 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position, CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.
