Post Doctoral researcher position in Nanomaterial-Based Sensors in the field of Chemical and Materials Engineering


Nanomaterials have enabled the development of a variety of highly responsive and sensitive systems for the detection of various chemical elements. We are currently recruiting a post-doctoral fellow to join an interdisciplinary team on the development of optical and electrochemical systems for the detection of opioids. This project is a collaboration between the groups of Drs. Anastasia Elias (Chemical and Materials Engineering) and Jon Veinot (Chemistry).

Tasks Involved

Selected individual will play an important role in advancing this research, particularly through planning and performing experimental work. This individual will synthesize inorganic nanomaterials and modify their surface with desired receptors, and conduct, chemical and optical characterization of the materials, data analysis, experimental design and manuscript preparation.

Required Qualifications

  1. A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, or a related field.
  2. Experience in nanoparticle synthesis and characterization is required; skills in electrochemical or optical sensors are advantageous.
  3. As this is a position for a Postdoctoral Fellowship, Ph.D. must have been awarded in the past three years.
  4. Applicants who are scheduled to defend their thesis by the end of July 2020 are also invited to apply.
