Postdoctoral Appointee - Ion Beam Lab Microscopy and Spectroscopy

Job #714797523
We are seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee to conduct experimental research in the areas of nuclear energy, fusion energy, and nanoscience. In this role, you will use your experience and education in the fields related to in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM), in-situ scanning electron microscopy (SEM), precession electron diffraction (PED), ion beam modification (IBM), image processing, small scale mechanical testing, or some combination to support ongoing efforts and to develop and lead new efforts.
On any given day, you may called on to:
Work to better understand the role of ion irradiation, ion implantation and general ion beam modification on the microstructure of advanced nanostructured materials
Operate varied microscopy equipment in a wide range of conditions to support a range of ongoing programs, including the operation of several in-situ SEM and TEM holders
Use groundbreaking data analysis to best interpret the data collected during the in-situ experiments
Present the results of your research at properly suited international conferences
Writeup and publish the thoroughly analyzed results in appropriate journals
Assist with maintenance and improvement of the capabilities in the Ion Beam Lab at Sandia, with an emphasis on the laser systems associated with the transient gradient spectroscopy (TGS) and dynamic TEM (DTEM) systems and the possible addition of Raman to the in-situ ion irradiation TEM
PhD, conferred within 5 years prior to employment, in Materials Science & Engineering, Physics, Nuclear Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related discipline
Good communication skills as evidenced by a record of publication of results in peer-reviewed journals and external presentations at scientific conferences
Experience with experimental research and technique development
Experience in in-situ SEM and TEM experiments, such as, in-situ heating, irradiation, implantation, and/or straining
Experience using TEM for tomography, procession electron diffraction (PED), ultra-fast or dynamic TEM development (DTEM), or other advanced techniques
Interest in exploring relationships between processing-structure-properties in diverse material systems
Experience in using electron microscopy for diffraction analysis and defect analysis
Experience testing a multitude of material systems, with emphasis on in-situ capabilities and an eagerness for technique development
Experience in a range SEM and TEM sample preparation techniques
Strong theoretical knowledge base in thermodynamics and kinetics
Strong background in transmission electron microscopy, defect analysis, and far-from-equilibrium processes
Strong publication record
Ability to obtain a DOE clearance
