Job Title

Postdoctoral Scientist - Radiation Laboratory

Job Description

The Notre Dame Radiation Laboratory, a world-renowned center for study of radiation chemistry, has an opening for a postdoctoral scientist. Our interdisciplinary team of chemists and physicists probe the basic science underpinning the effects of radiation across a broad range of non-medical applications, including nuclearpower generation, high-energy materials characterization, and industrial processing.

An experimentalist is needed to conduct radiation studies on the stability of nanoparticles in association with a variety of gaseous and liquid environments. The focus is on the interface between solid materials and the environments associated with the nuclear power industry, such as aqueous solutions, organics, and molten salts.

The position is a 1-year appointment with the possibility of renewal. To apply, CV and cover letters should be sent to Laura.Mortlock@nd.edu.

Minimum Qualifications

Education and Experience: Doctoral degree (preferably in Chemistry); 1 to 6 months of relevant experience

Skills: Basic chemistry and a good background on analytical techniques is required. Knowledge of radiation effects is desired but not necessary. The successful candidate will receive extensive training in radiation chemistry that is suitable for employment throughout the nuclear power industry.

Preferred Qualifications

U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is desired, but negotiable.

Special Instructions to Applicants

To apply, CV and cover letters should be sent to Laura.Mortlock@nd.edu.
