Postdoctoral research scientist with a strong background in the application of X-ray diffraction (XRD) to materials analysis. You will apply a novel, high-resolution, non-invasive XRD technique to the analysis of cultural heritage artefacts, leading several measurement campaigns at the Diamond synchrotron, and will be responsible for analysing the resulting data. The project is an EPSRC-funded multidisciplinary collaboration with the Centre for Archaeological and Forensic Analysis, Cranfield University, and the post will involve travel to Swindon, the Diamond Light Source near Oxford and to other project partners.
The Integrative Biomedical Materials and Nanomedicine Lab (https://www.upf.edu/web/nanomed ) from the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences of University Pompeu Fabra (DCEXS-UPF) aims to fill one PostDoc positions in biomedical surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). We encourage applications from exceptional scientists. Candidates must be experts on Raman spectroscopy and hold a PhD preferably in SERS. Women are encouraged to apply. Applications must be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your goal as a Postdoctoral Researcher will be to study various photonic properties of various nanomaterials, such as one-dimensional materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, nanowires), two-dimensional layered materials (e.g. transition metal dichalcogenides), and their heterostructures for various applications (e.g., plasmonics, photodetectors, modulators). You'll get to conduct high quality research independently and to work as an active member of the research groups by taking part in project management duties and guiding M.Sc. and Doctoral students.
