Postdoc Position in Solution Processed Graphene and Related Materials and Composites X 4

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoc position in material sciences. The initial contract for this position is 24 months and posible to extend. Applications are welcome before December 13, 2018.

We wish to appoint Research Associates in the Cambridge Graphene Centre, to work on solution processed Graphene and Related Materials and Composites.

The aim is to develop a new class of composites able to exploit the mechanical, thermal, optical and electrical properties of graphene and related materials.

This is an ambitious frontier research program, with a strong interdisciplinary nature, across engineering, physical, chemical and soft matter sciences, and will require the optimization of inks and solutions based on graphene and related materials, as well as their incorporation in a variety of host substances, ranging from polymers, to glasses, metal, concrete, etc. with the aim of augmenting the mechanical, thermal, optical, or electronic properties of the host material.

Successful candidates will have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry, Nanotechnology, Material Science or Electrical Engineering. Preference will be given to candidates with proven expertise in preparation, optimisation, characterization of composites and inks based on graphene and related materials.

Experience in handing collaborations within EU/UK projects, including reporting with frequent, strict deadlines and attendance to project meetings is highly desirable, and experience of managing own workload.

The role holders will be located in Cambridge Graphene Centre, West Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 24 months in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.

Ensure that you upload your CV, covering letter, two reference letters in the Upload section of the online application. Additional documents not requested, will not be considered as part of your application. Submit your application by midnight on the closing date.
