Profile

This postdoctoral position is a temporary position for up to one year, which may be renewed at Sandia's discretion up to five additional years. The PhD must have been conferred within five years prior to employment.
Individuals in postdoctoral positions may bid on regular Sandia positions as internal candidates, and in some cases may be converted to regular career positions during their term if warranted by ongoing operational needs, continuing availability of funds, and satisfactory job performance.
Are you passionate about your work and dream of utilizing state-of-the-art concepts to explore solutions?
We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on electrochemical science and technology with applications to energy storage. Materials systems and technologies of interest include, but are not limited to, conversion cathodes and Li anodes, solid state and ionogel electrolytes, and three-dimensional battery architectures. Your work will involve battery prototype fabrication in the laboratory, electrochemical and structural characterization with emphasis on exploring novel architectures and fundamental understanding of how these relate to battery performance. You are self-motivated, able to work independently, and contribute creatively to team efforts. You are expected to present results at national/international meetings and publish research in high-impact peer-reviewed journals.
Department Description:
The Materials Physics department performs fundamental research on the structure and properties of materials to support programs in energy research, device physics, materials reliability, and national security. Specific activities include experimental and modeling studies of surface electronic structure and surface atomic structure and dynamics of metals, oxides, low dimensional semiconductors, and adsorbates; atomic-scale structure and composition analysis of metals, semiconductors, and composites; electrical and optical properties of low-dimensional semiconductors and optoelectronic devices; and the structural and electrochemical characterization of solid-state ionic materials. The Department supports internal and external sponsors and government agencies that seek solutions to problems of fundamental scientific inquiry, energy sustainability, and national defense.
