Dear IFEFFIT mailing list subscribers:

Sharing this on behalf of colleagues. The MSEE EFRC at Brookhaven National
Laboratory has two postdoctoral positions available immediately. Please
find the advertisements with contact information in the attachments. Please
forward this info to anyone you believe may be interested in this
opportunity. While the both positions expect expertise in multiple methods,
I was requested to pass it along to this list specifically because of the
PI's interest to develop strong XAFS component for the purpose of this

Dear Colleagues,

We are seeking candidates for postdoctoral Research Associate positions
within the Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) on Molten Salts in
Extreme Environments at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Information about
the positions is summarized below and two flyers are attached to this
message. We would appreciate you sharing these opportunities with students,
postdocs and other contacts. Please contact us if you have questions.

Best regards,

The Energy Frontier Research Center on Molten Salts in Extreme Environments
(EFRC/MSEE) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is pleased to announce
that we are hiring Postdoctoral Research Associates. These positions will
be part of a collaborative, multi-institution team performing
electrochemical, structural (x-ray and neutron), spectroscopic (optical and
x-ray), kinetics, and computational studies of molten salt and solute
structure, speciation and reactivity in the bulk and at interfaces. The
MSEE Center’s scientific mission is to provide fundamental, atomic-level
understanding of bulk and interfacial molten salts, and the effects of
molten salt exposure on interfaces, in support of their use in molten salt
nuclear reactors. To this end, we are developing novel in-situ synchrotron,
electrochemical and electron microscopy techniques for investigating
high-temperature molten salts.

Two positions require a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, physics, materials
science or a related field. The interdisciplinary research will focus on
structural, spectroscopic, and electrochemical investigations of molten
salts, solutes in them, and liquid-solid interfaces. A third position
requires a Ph.D. degree in chemistry or a related field and primarily
involves pulse radiolysis investigations of reaction kinetics in molten
salts, in pure form and in mixtures containing other salts and metal ions.

To find detailed descriptions of the position requirements and apply
online, go to https://jobs.bnl.gov and search for “molten salts.” For Job
ID 1411, hands-on experience in either X-ray diffraction, reflectivity, or
spectroscopy is required. For Job ID 1419, demonstrated experience in
electrochemical methods or working with molten salts is required.
Experience with the chemical and physical properties of materials at
high-temperature is highly desirable for both these positions. For Job ID
1564, experience with experimental, time-resolved studies of reaction
kinetics and mechanisms is required and experience with pulse radiolysis or
laser flash photolysis techniques is highly desirable.
