Job Description
  Basic Purpose
  This Postdoctoral Appointee will work with members of the Time Resolved Research group at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) and the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) to perform innovative research on probing nanoscale dynamics in shear thickening complex fluids using small angle coherent x-ray scattering. The scope of the research project includes the synthesis of novel nanoparticle dispersion in complex fluids and carrying out bulk rheological measurements using the facilities at the CNM and use the x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy beamline at the APS to study and correlate the dynamic properties with the rheological characteristics. The candidate is responsible for conceiving, planning and implementing the scientific research, and for reporting relevant results in an appropriate form.
  Knowledge, Skills and Experience
Highly skilled knowledge and experience in the synthesis of novel nanoparticle dispersions in complex fluids and their rheological characterization using a commercial rheometer.
Additional knowledge and experience of small angle x-ray scattering techniques will be very beneficial. Skill in conceiving and implementing experimental methods, planning and conducting experimental procedures, and analyzing and interpreting measurements.
Able to work independently on a daily basis. Able to work effectively as a member of a multidisciplinary research group.
