• Postdoctoral position at Johns Hopkins, with a designated visiting scholar position at Sandia National Laboratories (NM), focused on in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experiments and machine learning to investigate radiation damage processes in both pure metals and high entropy alloys.

    The successful applicant will be part of a dynamic, multi-university team which includes both theoretical and experimental personnel. Ideal candidates will have experience with in-situ and high resolution TEM (including aberration correction), electron diffraction, sample fabrication, and defect and microstructural analysis of metallic systems. Experience with image processing, scripting/programming (Python, Matlab, C++) for data processing is preferred, and must be comfortable to travel periodically to Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM.

  • Post-doctoral position in in situ and high-resolution STEM characterization of ferroelectric materials

    The Khan Lab and the Kacher Lab jointly are currently looking for a dynamic researcher to aid in the efforts to understand the phase state and switching behavior in novel ferroelectric and anti-ferroelectric materials, nano-structures and nano-devices. Currently, we are accepting applications for a post-doctoral position focused on applying in situ biasing and high-resolution STEM imaging techniques to understand the factors that dictate ferroelectric and anti-ferroelectric behavior. The work will involve in situ S/TEM biasing experiments using probe and chip-based biasing holders in an aberration corrected STEM. The position is available beginning in May 2021 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, Electrical 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:

    • High resolution STEM imaging
    • FIB-based sample preparation

    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. Asif Khan (asif.khan@ece.gatech.edu) and Prof. Josh Kacher (josh.kacher@mse.gatech.edu). Reviews of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

  • NanoMEGAS is looking for talented and self-motivated service engineer.

    Your job:

    As an Electronic/ Industrial Engineer you will be responsible for your sector and responsible for assembling and installing their technologies/systems to clients. You will support on site or remotely their customers and will also interact with third party microscopy companies.

    You will be primarily responsible for:

    - Assembly and quality control of our hardware/software systems

    - Resolving any issues during assembly & testing of our systems

    - Coordinate with other team members during manufacturing, design and software engineers, putting priorities

    - Traveling outside Belgium (Europe, US & Asia) to install our instrumentation on various electron microscopes (travel activity about 20-30 % of time)

    - Review and resolve customer issues on site or by email / telephone

    - Actively participate in organization events (meetings, seminars, training)

    Your background:

    - Engineering degree (Electrical, Electronic)

    2 years minimum experience in lab or self-directed project. Alternatively a previous experience in service work on SEM/TEM electron microscopes will be a plus, but not mandatory

    - Important to have hands-on experience (assembly, fabrication/modification, wiring)

    - Ability to communicate technical information effectively. Open to working in a small
    international team and flexible environment

    - PCB design experience will be a plus


    Please send CV and a motivation letter to nanomegas@gmail.com
