In that spirit, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of people, including women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, veterans or any other legally protected group.

Position Information

Position Title
Postdoctoral Fellow

Department
Thayer School of Engineering

Position Number
1127075

Position Purpose

A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately to study dry sliding wear of high entropy alloys at cryogenic temperatures. Wear testing will be performed at both 77 K and room temperature at different sliding velocities and in different environments, i.e. dry air, argon. The aim is to determine the relationship between the microstructure, deformation processes (including material transfer), phase transformations, friction and wear behavior, including the role played by third bodies (wear debris) on the wear process. Microstructural characterization of the pre- and post-wear specimens will include transmission electron microscopy (TEM), including X-ray dispersive spectroscopy; computed-assisted profilometry; X-ray diffraction; nanoindentation; cross-sectional scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atom probe tomography; and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The applicant must have experience in both TEM and SEM. Experience in X-ray diffraction and mechanical testing will also be useful.



SEIU Level
Not an SEIU Position

FLSA
Exempt

Employment Category
Temporary Full Time

Department Contact for Cover Letter

Special Instructions to Applicants

This position is a 12-month term position.

This position is funded by a grant. Continuation is based upon available funds.

Employment in this position is contingent upon consent to and successful completion of a pre-employment background check, which may include a criminal background check, reference checks, verification of work history, and verification of any required academic credentials, licenses, and/or certifications, with results acceptable to Dartmouth College. A criminal conviction will not automatically disqualify an applicant from employment. Background check information will be used in a confidential, non-discriminatory manner consistent with state and federal law.
