Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Functional Materials

Aalto University - Department of Chemistry and Materials Science

Aalto, Finland

We are now looking for a talented and highly motivated postdoctoral researcher in the field of Functional Materials at Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering starting in March 2019

The group of Multifunctional Materials Design develops new multifunctional and multistructural materials with the scope of answering current and future challenges in nanotechnology and renewable energy production. By applying interdisciplinary materials design and characterization methods, for instance nanopatterned thin films, applicable as antireflection coatings, and electrolyte-absorbing sponges for third generation photovoltaics are investigated. The group will be launched in the beginning of 2019 and will be led by Assistant Professor Jaana Vapaavuori (ORCID ID: 0000-0002-5923-0789), so this is a unique opportunity for the candidate to participate in setting up a chemistry laboratory.

Job description

The successful candidate will conduct experimental materials science research aiming for high impact scientific publications. This 2-years postdoctoral appointment centers on creation of new materials capable of sensing of mechanical deformations, which is extremely pertinent, especially from the point of the view of the e-skins and increasing the reliability of engineering materials, such as tamper-evidencing packaging. Out of the prepared novel materials, stretchable functional fibers can be fabricated through a simple molding, drawing, or spinning techniques. The postdoc will have access to the state-of-the art materials science characterization methods, such as provided by Aalto Nanomicroscopy Center.

Requirements

As a successful applicant, you should be highly motivated in experimental science and have a doctor’s degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, physics, materials science, or a closely related field. Earlier scientific activity, especially publications in peer-reviewed journals, is an additional advantage.

The candidate should also have:

  • PhD degree in a suitable field;
  • Good written and oral communication skills in English;
  • Experience in carrying out independent project-based work and working in a highly collaborative environment.
