The Center for Research, Technology and Education in Vitreous Materials (CeRTEV) in Brazil, one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDC) funded by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), announces the opening of two post-doctoral positions for glass research. Applications are invited for conducting fundamental and innovative research.
One of the positions is to work at the LEMAF – Laboratory of Spectroscopy of Functional Materials at São Carlos Physics Institute of the University of São Paulo (IFSC-USP) and the other at the LAVIE – Laboratory of Special Glasses at Chemistry Institute of the São Paulo State University (UNESP), in the city of Araraquara; the period of the fellowship is two years, starting in September-October 2019, renewable for two additional years upon mutual consent.
Started in 2013, CeRTEV is an 11-year joint effort of the Federal University at São Carlos (UFSCar), the University of São Paulo (USP) and the São Paulo State University (UNESP), to research the area of Functional Glasses and Glass-Ceramics.
The post-doctoral research will be focused on fundamental investigations in optical and magnetic glasses with views to innovative applications.
Position one will focus on the development (design, synthesis and characterization) of optical glasses for photonic and biophotonic applications among which could be sensing (ionizing radiation, temperature, gas, etc), optical amplifying, lasing, etc.
Position two will focus on the synthesis and characterization of different families of glasses and glass-ceramics (oxide, phosphate and fluoride) with magnetic properties. This is a very new field of application for glasses and many opportunities and possibilities are available. Previous experiences with magnetic characterization techniques and/or synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles are also desired.
The researcher is expected to conduct the post-doc activities in one of the joint CeRTEV laboratories cited above under supervision of the leading Principal Investigator in these labs, but also working in close collaboration with the other CeRTEV researchers and students.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science or Engineering (knowledge in electronics and device building is also welcome), previous experience in glass science, solid state physics or chemistry is advantageous. The language requirements are English, Spanish, French or Portuguese.
The monthly fellowships (non-taxable) include ca. BRL 7,373.10 -plus 15% professional expenses (e.g., for travel). Our post-docs from Canada, Russia, Iran, India, Colombia, Pakistan and Brazil typically spend from BRL2000 to BRL2500/month for comfortable living style. Travel expenses from and to their home countries will also be covered.
Please send your application including CV, list of publications, a 2-page research proposal, and the names and email addresses of two senior references by July 10, 2019 to the following persons: Professor Andrea de Camargo (email: email@example.com) and Professor Marcelo Nalin (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).Leer más
