Job Description:

Position Number:998305Functional Title:Nanoscience Postdoctoral FellowPosition Type:StaffPosition Eclass:EP - EHRA 12 mo leave earningUniversity Information:, located in the of North Carolina, is 1 of only 57 doctoral institutions recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for both higher and . Founded in 1891 and one of the original three institutions, UNC Greensboro is one of the most in the state with , and members representing 90+ nationalities. With , in over , UNC Greensboro is consistently recognized nationally among the top universities for , with noted strengths in , and follow UNCG on , , and .Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit:The mission of the Nanoscience department is to prepare students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds to conduct basic and advanced research in Nanoscience in industrial, governmental, or academic settings. Within this context, the Nanoscience Department provides a graduate-level trans-disciplinary educational and discovery research experience in nanosciences, sustainable nanosystems, innovation, and community-engaged outreach. It also works collaboratively with the Nanoengineering Department to achieve an integrated foundational research program in emerging high-impact areas. Scientists in this new and emerging field seek to comprehend, gather and organize knowledge of the nanoworld through careful observations and creative, visionary thinking. Nanoscience is a multidisciplinary field bringing together vast knowledge from mathematics and all the core sciences: physics, biology, chemistry, and their derivatives such as material science, pharmacology, neurochemistry, ecology, etc. Consequently, nanoscientists are scientists engaging in an organized activity of manipulation of materials at atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scales that are versatile and fluent in mathematics and the core sciences with a particular world view based on the synergy of these core sciences and on their derived applications to the macro world. Nanoscience is a new way of thinking about old things.Position Summary:The primary purpose of this position is to provide technical research support for work in the Ahmed lab related to soft active matter research funded by NSF. Responsibilities include the synthesis, characterization, optical viewing, and tracking of motion of polymeric active matter systems.Minimum Qualifications:Ph.D. in chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, engineering, or related field. Ability to maintain detailed, highly organized laboratory notebooks.Preferred Qualifications:Experience in the field of soft active matter especially as it relates to low Reynolds number systems. Experience in PDMS micromolding, optical imaging and tracking of particle motion, and fabrication of polymer microstructures are highly desirable. Computational experience is not required but a plus.Special Instructions to Applicants:Applicants must complete and submit an electronic application for employment to be considered.
