Postdoctoral Research Associate BioMaterials Design Group
The Biomaterials Design Group led by Leila Deravi in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern University seeks an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher in the field of applied chemistry/materials science. The primary responsibility of the postdoc is to perform and communicate research which is to generate color-changing materials (textiles, coatings, thin films), colormetric sensors, and/or flexible electrochromic devices inspired by how cephalopods camouflage. The candidate should have a strong background in analytical chemistry and be familiar with designing, fabricating, and characterizing materials and structures over multiple spatial scales (from nano- to centi- meter). An understanding of spectrophotometry and spectroscopy will be required. Experience in device design would be a bonus. The candidate should have an interest in managing highly collaborative research efforts with chemists, biologists, and engineers and have eligibility for security clearance, as the workplace will be between the Boston (main) and Burlington campuses.
Qualifications: Ph.D. in chemistry, materials science/engineering or related field; strong technical expertise and demonstrated independence in the design and execution of experiments. The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills and proven track record of mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students.
