Post-Doctoral Fellow in Electron Backscatter Diffraction Techniques

moh22000's picture

The University of New Brunswick’s (UNB’s) Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence (MAMCE) is seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow who has specialized in applying Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) techniques in the one or more of the following fields: Materials Science, Metallurgy, and Additively Manufactured Alloys. Experience with the electron microscopy of natural and synthetic metals combined with EBSD techniques is required, including sample preparation. The successful applicant will support ongoing research programs in two key areas:

  1. Characterizing high pressure-high temperature mineral polymorphs in terms of crystal structure, composition and texture. This will include working with shocked terrestrial, martian, lunar and asteroid materials, as well as synthetic ceramics, as part of PASSC’s ongoing research activities.
  2. Characterizing metals and alloys in the FCC, BCC and HCP crystal systems, their microstructure and phases in support of the Faculty of Engineering’s Marine Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence. The position will also support other UNB users in their analytical electron microscopy needs, as well as external clients. Scope for collaborative and self-driven research will be accommodated and encouraged.

UNB operates a Hitachi SU-70 Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope equipped with an Oxford Instruments INCA x-act energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer and HKL Nordlys S detector EBSD system. The facility also operates a Renishaw inVia Reflex micro-Raman spectrometer equipped with Ar-ion and NIR lasers. Additional analytical electron microscopy equipment is also available through UNB’s Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility, including SEM, TEM and microprobe capabilities. The appointment is for up to three years, with a salary in the $50,000 to $55,000/yr range. Candidates must have obtained their PhD within the last five years. Please send a letter of interest, CV and the names of three referees, one of whom should include the PhD supervisor, to the attention of Dr John Spray, Director, PASSC, via email to: and/or mmohamm2@unb.caClosing date for applications is 1 June 2018.
