Postdoctoral Scholar – Experimental Postdoc in Small-Scale Mechanical Testing

commensurate with experience

The Nanoscale Mechanics and Materials Laboratory (NMML) at UC Irvine is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar position. The research will focus on the mechanical behavior of novel nanostructured materials. We are seeking an individual with a strong background in experimental mechanics and materials science. A Ph.D. in materials science, mechanical engineering, physics or a related field is required. Experience with transmission electron microscopy (TEM), focused ion beam (FIB) micromachining, small-scale mechanical testing (for example, nanoindentation and in situ experiments), and powder metallurgy is preferred.

Please send a CV, cover letter and a list of at least three references. The position is a one-year appointment with the possibility for annual renewal. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Apply by submitting your application to our online RECRUIT system at:
