Jobs

POST-DOC POSITION IN THE FIELD OF:
Advanced transmission electron microscopy studies of 2D-materials

The Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA), founded in 2003, is an interdisciplinary research institute at the U. of Zaragoza and is devoted to R+D in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. INA hosts the Laboratory of Advanced Microscopies (LMA), a Spanish National Facility, which represents a unique initiative, both national and internationally to gather the most advanced existing equipment and infrastructures in local probe and electron microscopy. The LMA-INA hosts a large number of laboratories dedicated to materials synthesis and characterization, including XRD, XPS, Auger and Raman spectroscopy, AFM, MFM, STM, macroscopic characterization (magnetization, transport), 4 TEM (including 2 aberration-corrected TEMs, one monochromated), 3 FIB (including Cryo-FIB) and SEM.

Candidates should hold a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or other related areas. Previous experience in TEM (HR(S)TEM, EELS, tomography) is required and a background in carbon-based nanostructures, as well as a knowledge in XPS would be appreciated.

POST-DOC POSITION IN THE FIELD OF:
Biobased and Biodegrdable Polymer Composites

Polymeric Materials and NanoComposites (PMNC) group (http://physics.tcd.ie/pmnc/) at TCD led by Dr. Ramesh Babu. The mission is to provide world-class research in Polymeric Materials and separation sciences, to act as an intellectual powerhouse and a catalyst for the development of a smart, globally competitive industry sector in Ireland and Europe. The overarching performance target of the group is to provide the R&D capability that will allow industries to become involved in the use of the most advanced polymeric materials and tools to create smart products and technology to compete effectively in all markets. We undertake a variety of research and development activities in pursuit of this goal including developing novel technologies, analysis, formulation, characterisation, and technology transfer of polymer nanocomposites, separation technologies, bio-based polymers, conducting polymers and electrospun materials.

The core tasks are:
1. Use of Brabender melt mixer and 20/40 D twin screw extruder for making the composite.
2. Formulating and improving the biodegradable properties of polymer composites/blends with nano fillers using melt extrusion process.
3. Scaling up the composites for pilot scale production to produce films for packaging.
4. Characterisation of composites for barrier, mechanical, thermal and distribution of nano additives by SEM, TEM, and Raman spectroscopies.
5. Analysing the thermal (TGA, DSC, DMA) and mechanical properties of the composites using various analytical techniques.
6. Developing the protocols to assess the biodegradation of polymer composites
7. Writing papers and giving presentations on the research conducted.
8. Helping with the day to day running of the research group, training and supervising students, procuring orders, managing the laboratories.
