The Nanoscience and Technology (NST) Division at Argonne National Laboratory hosts the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a multidisciplinary user facility with expertise in the characterization, fabrication, synthesis and theory of nanoscale materials, in addition to performing programmatic science activities. NST research ranges from fundamental to use-inspired nanoscience with connections to industry and the Argonne applied science divisions. The division seeks to bring together scientists and engineers from national laboratories, industry, and academia to meet nanoscience and nanotechnology challenges of the present and future.
We seek a staff scientist with expertise in the electron microscopy of nanoscale materials to join the Electron and X-ray Microscopy Group in the Nanoscience and Technology Division at Argonne.
The staff scientist should possess a background in electron microscopy, and with a strong interest in the use of data science for electron microscopy research. He or she is expected to develop a world-class research program of his or her own in the area of electron microscopy of nanoscale materials, and is expected to collaborate effectively with other CNM scientists and users of the CNM. An interest and experience in applying data science techniques to electron microscopy would be an added plus. The staff scientist is also expected to have a strong commitment towards building up a robust set of users and collaborators for CNM’s electron microscopy facilities. The position offers considerable research freedom and the ability to develop a long-term scientific research program.
A Ph.D. in the physical sciences, with research experience in electron microscopy is required. Postdoctoral research experience is desirable.
Argonne National Laboratory is a Department of Energy national laboratory with over 1,500 scientists and engineers performing world-class research aimed at solving the nation's energy, environmental and security challenges. Argonne is located 25 miles southwest of Chicago on a beautiful 1,500-acre campus.
Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impac...t — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.
Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
At Argonne, we explore the world together in order to build a better one.
