Postdoctoral Research Associate - Isolation of Device Quality Graphene (6482) — The Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory seeks to fill an opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in a project on scalable synthesis of graphene. Complementing ongoing work on graphene growth on metals, the research will focus on identifying novel methods for isolating graphene and transfer to arbitrary supports. Required qualifications include a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, materials science or a related field, and experience in wet chemical and electrochemical etching, as well as general electrochemistry. Experience in clean room device fabrication, graphene growth, or in methods for graphene characterizations (SEM, Raman, electrical transport) will be a plus.Applications should include curriculum vitae, publication list and a brief (1 page) statement of relevant research interests and experience. Under the direction of P. Sutter and E. Sutter.BNL policy states that research associate appointments may be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years.BNL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to the development of a diverse workforce.

Postdoctoral Research Associate - In-Situ Electron Microscopy (6486) — The Electron Microscopy group at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Laboratory has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the area of in-situ electron microscopy. The successful candidate will work on the development and fabrication of a liquid cell for in-situ microscopy in wet environments (i.e., liquids, solutions, colloidal suspensions), which he/she will utilize to investigate energy-relevant materials and processes, e.g., understanding the solution synthesis of nanoparticles, nanowires, and of complex heterostructures relevant for catalysis. The resulting observations will be used to provide fundamental insights into nucleation and growth mechanism in these systems. Requires a Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, materials science or a related field, as well as experience in transmission electron microscopy (TEM), including instrument operation and independent data acquisition and analysis. Previous experience in in-situ electron microscopy will be a plus.Under the direction of Eli Sutter.Lab policy states that research associate appointments may be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years.BNL is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to the development of a diverse workforce.
