Dear colleagues

I would be grateful if you could bring this post to the attention of suitable candidates. The post has been funded for 33 months and will be supervised jointly by myself and Rob Lindsay in the School of Materials.

Best regards,



Research Associate

High-Pressure Soft X-ray Synchrotron Spectroscopy of Adsorbed Large Organic Molecules for Corrosion Inhibition

Closing date: 11/01/2011
Reference: EPS/11323


We are seeking to employ a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science and the School of Materials on a full-time basis.

A PhD in a relevant scientific discipline and several years of hands-on experience in experimental X-ray spectroscopy (XPS, NEXAFS, other surface techniques) are required. The project focuses on fundamental physicochemical studies of model surface systems to an industrially relevant project involving organic chemists, computational chemists and chemical engineers at the Mexican Petroleum Institute (IMP). As such it requires a candidate with the ability to work both on own initiative as well as a part of teams of varying size. Candidates should have an interest in working across the boundary between fundamental academic science and its practical application. Relevant peer-reviewed publications and experience in writing manuscripts for academic journal publications are essential. The post requires an ability to travel globally and regularly. Experience of using ab initio soft X-ray spectroscopy data analysis packages, including StoBe, FEFF, and CASTEP, or similar computational methods would be an advantage.
