Post Doc Research

Job Title: Postdoctoral Researcher, Additive Process Engineer

The following post-doctoral position is open to candidates having experience in processing of advanced materials. This is primarily related to the processing of materials for composite and device creation. Candidates should possess exceptional skills in analytical instrumentation and techniques for characterization of materials and performance characteristics.

The Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (IME) at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering invites applications for a Post-Doc position in the area of Materials science or Chemistry or Materials Engineering or other relevant fields, with a start date in September 2017. The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is a joint college of two universities, Florida A&M University and Florida State University.

Current research aims in the synthesis, characterization, and processing of polymer based architectures used in a variety of technologies and devices ranging from aerospace to medical devices using additive manufacturing techniques. Present research problems include gaining a fundamental understanding of different mechanisms of self-assembly and microstructure and how it contributes to properties on the macro scale. Responsibilities will include initial material synthesis for additive manufacturing, creation and standardization of analysis processes/characterization for these novel materials, and high impact journal publications.

The successful candidate will either have a Ph.D. in a relevant field or have recently submitted a relevant Ph.D. dissertation and will have a track record of publication in peer-reviewed international journals, together with good communication skills for presenting results at international meetings. The application package must include a curriculum vitae, research (2-page) and teaching (1-page) statements, and names and contact information of three to five references and must be emailed to rise.crest@eng.famu.fsu.edu. The starting date will be in September 2017, but applications will be accepted up until October 31, 2017.
