Description

The laboratory of Chris Keating in the Chemistry Department, at The Pennsylvania State University, seeks to fill a postdoctoral research position in the area of bioinspired materials chemistry. The position requires a Ph.D. in chemistry or a related field of science or engineering. Candidates should have a strong publication record and experience in soft materials (e.g. aqueous phase coexistence, polymer solutions) and/or mineralization (e.g. mineral deposition and characterization by powder diffraction, electron microscopy, and vibrational methods). Additional expertise in enzyme reactions, emulsion science, and optical microscopy is desirable. Interested and qualified applicants must submit applications electronically to include a cover letter describing your background and prior training, a CV which includes a list of publications, and a brief statement (1-2 pages) of research interests. Following a screening of these initial application materials, appropriate candidates will be contacted by email and asked to arrange for three (3) letters of recommendation to be sent. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one-year from the date of hire with a possibility of re-funding. Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
