Assistant Project Scientist in Nano-architected Materials

Commensurate upon experience

The Architected Materials Lab at the University of California, Irvine is currently accepting applications for an assistant project scientist position. The research will focus on fabrication, modeling and mechanical characterization of nano-architected materials. We are seeking an individual with a strong background in mechanics and additive manufacturing -- in particular two-photon polymerization -- and proven ability to fabricate complex nanostructures in polymers, metals and ceramics. Experience with electron microscopy and nanomechanical characterization techniques (in-situ mechanical testing within an SEM, nano-indentation, etc…) is highly desirable. A Ph.D. in mechanical engineering, materials science, physics or a related field is required. It is expected that the successful candidate will work on his/her own research projects, while simultaneously supporting the PI on proposal-writing efforts and help to train/mentor graduate students in the group.

Please send a CV, cover letter and a list of at least three references. The positions are one-year appointments with the possibility for annual renewal. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
