• Post-doctoral position: Dislocation-based micromechanics & in situ TEM - Kasher Lab, Georgia Tech

    The Kacher Lab is currently looking for a dynamic researcher to aid in our efforts to understand the multiscale microstructural effects dictating the mechanical behavior of materials. As a team, we explore how microstructure and processing conditions affect bulk properties and local failure mechanisms using multiscale and in situ-based electron microscopy techniques. Currently, we are accepting applications for a post-doctoral position focused on understanding dislocation mechanics at the micro to nanoscale under a range of loading conditions. The work will involve in situ TEM using a custom-built quantitative micromechanical testing platform and post mortem analysis of dislocation/grain boundary interactions. The position is available beginning in August 2020 and will continue for one year from hire date, with yearly extensions to a second and third year possible depending on performance and funding.

    Required Qualifications:

    • A Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a related discipline.

    • Excellence in written and oral communication as evident by a strong publication and presentation track record.

    • Expertise in electron microscopy-based characterization

    Desired Qualifications:

    Strong candidates will have experience in at least some of the following areas:

    • TEM-based dislocation characterization


    • EBSD-based analysis of microstructure and defect structures
    • FIB-based TEM sample preparation
    • In situ TEM nanomechanical testing
    • Fatigue testing and failure analysis
    • Corrosion/stress corrosion cracking

    Interested candidates should send a cover letter, CV including a list of publications and presentations, three potential references with phone numbers and emails included to Prof. Josh Kacher (josh.kacher@mse.gatech.edu). Reviews of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
