Title: Post-Doctoral Position with CSM and NREL
Appointment Conditions: Full time
Details are available at the following link:
Job Description: 
We are seeking a post-doctoral research associate to work collaboratively between the Colorado School of Mines and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on a high visibility project that concerns the characterization of defects and interfaces in high-efficiency, low-cost III-V photovoltaic materials. Prior experience in focused ion beam sample preparation and a strong crystallography background is required. Experience in Transmission Electron and Scanning Electron microscopies is desired. Training in Atom Probe Tomography will be conducted. The project will begin late spring/early summer 2016.

Location: Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering, Chicago, Illinois USA
Title: Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
Appointment Conditions: Full time September 15th, 2016
Details are available at the following link:
Job Description (Responsibilities):

  • Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, David Seidman Research Group
  • Nb3Sn coatings for use in superconducting radiofrequency cavities.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to study Nb3Sn coatings for use in superconducting radiofrequency cavities. The goal is to understand limitations observed in Nb3Sn-coated cavities through investigation of the microstructure. The researcher will focus on studying samples and cutouts using SEM/EDX, TEM/EDS, atom-probe tomography, TOF-SIMS, and profilometry, and correlating performance to surface characteristics. Examples of microstructural defects that are expected to be of interest include small non-stoichiometric regions previously observed in TEM/EDS and XRD investigations as well as surface roughness
