- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, CA: The Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) Program anticipates one or two postdoctral positions in the area of Polymer Science to support the development of polymer-based target components for current and future ICF experiments. Looking for experimentalists with strong backgrounds in areas such as polymer characterization, rheology, surface and coating science, or polymer processing, as well as the use of standard laboratory analytical tools such as CG-MS, FTIR, UV-Vis, DSC, and TGA.
- Kansas State University, Department of Physics: Applications are invited from experiementalists for two postdoctoral positions in materials science. A Ph.D. in physics, chemistry, material science or a related discipline is required. One position will be responsible for the operation of a Philips CM12 STEM, and the other for operation of surface science equipment (two X-ray photoelectron spectrometers (one of which has multichannel detection and monochromatized X-ray dection).
- University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada: A postdoctoral position is available in Professor Brumer's Physical Theory Group which is engaged in theoritical work on coherent control of molecular processes, light-matter interactions, semiclassical methods of propagation, quantum and classical analysis of laser induced intramolecular energy redistribution, classical-quantum correspondence, quantum chaos, and semiclassical corrections to RRKM theory. Applicants may send their cv to the internet (firstname.lastname@example.org) or regular mail.
