Post-Doctoral Position in the Interfacial Science Laboratory

Position Summary: The Interfacial Science Laboratory (ISL) in the Department of Chemical and
Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Riverside invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in the areas of interfacial science/rheology . The initial appointment would be for one year, with the opportunity to renew after the first year. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and years of experience.

Requirements: The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, Physics,
Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field.
The experiences in surface forces apparatus, atomic force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and micro/nanofabrication would be highly desired but not mandatory. Candidates should be familiar with writing protocols, managing day-to-day implementation of protocol procedures, ensuring quality data acquisition, analyzing multilevel repeated-measures data, writing manuscripts, and collaborating with students.

Interfacial Science/Rheology Postdoc:

The ideal candidate will be involved in projects seeking (a) to perform rheological measurements in multiple length scales ranging from macroscale to mesoscale and nanoscale to gain insights into how the isotropic and anisotropic adsorption of organic molecules and ligands alter the flow characteristics of colloidal suspension and (b) to perform experimental data analysis and interpretation in comparison with appropriate hydrodynamical and rheological models. Some of the key skillsets and backgrounds of the successful candidate in this position include microfluids, nanofluids, force spectroscopy, rheological testing, colloidal synthesis, colloidal interactions, and adsorption. The person who is going to be hired for this position will be working on a couple of Department of Energy (DOE) projects in collaboration with team members from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and UC, Berkeley.

Application Procedure: Applicants will need to send a cover letter (describe how the position relates to his/her academic experiences and previous accomplishments), curriculum vitae, contact information of three academic references as a single PDF file to ymin at engr dot ucr dot edu, with the subject line "Postdoctoral Position in the ISL." Further information about the ISL can be found here: The selected applications will be interviewed with Zoom to finalize the decision.

Job Type: Full-time

Pay: $50,000.00 – $65,000.00 per year
