    Stockholm, Sweden
    Postdoc in Transmission Electron Microscopy
    Announcement date: 29 September 2021 - Deadline for application: 26 October 2021

    [show details]

    Description

    The aim of this project is to develop and apply emerging methods for high resolution imaging of delicate soft/biomaterials using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Electron microscopy has evolved into an essential tool in materials and life science characterization. Over the last two decades the development of both aberration-corrected TEM and Cryo-EM has opened up for imaging with sub-Ångström resolution allowing for studies of specimens with atomic resolution and imaging of highly beam sensitive specimens.

    Within this project emerging techniques in the aberration-corrected TEM, such as 4-dimensional (4D) STEM, scanning electron diffraction and integrated differential phase contrast (iDPC) imaging, will be explored for the purpose of characterization of electron beam sensitive specimens. The project will mainly focus on studies of biomaterials, such as wood, cellulose and chitin as well as beam sensitive microporous materials, such as metal-organic framework and other organic and hybrid organic/inorganic porous materials.

     

    Requirements

    Applicants are expected to hold (or being close to completing) a doctoral degree in Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Material Science, Biology or similar.

     Prior experience in TEM is essential, experience on aberration-corrected (S)TEM is beneficial. Demonstrable familiarity with advanced techniques such as 4D STEM, integrated differential phase contrast (iDPC), cryo-EM and/or ptychography is advantageous but not necessary. Experience in scientific programming and/or familiarity with soft or electron beam sensitive specimens will be a plus.

    Postdoc position : Automatic machine learning identification of nanoscale features in transmission electron microscopy images
    Announcement date: 22 September 2021 - Deadline for application: 31 December 2022

    [show details]

    Description

    Imaging nanoscale features using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is key to predicting and assessing the mechanical behaviour of structural materials in nuclear reactors or in the fields of nanotechnology. These features, visible by phase contrast (nanobubbles) or diffraction contrast (dislocation loops or coherent precipitates), are prime candidates for automation. Analysing these micrographs manually is often tedious, time consuming, non-universal and somehow subjective. In this project, the objective is to develop a Python-based framework for data treatment of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images. Machine Learning approaches will be implemented in order to tackle the following tasks: - Data collection: The success of any machine learning approach is linked to the database quality. In this project, a huge database is available. Four microscopists are involved in the project and will continuously enrich the database with images containing easily recognizable features. - Denoising and finding the defect contour both through existing open-access software and in-house developed descriptors. Representative ROI (region-of-Interest) will be generated on images. - Design of the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) Architecture and model training: A collective feature map will be generated for the entire images in order to identify some representatives ROI. Each ROI is then overlaid to the original feature map and is passed to the CNN for individual region classifications. Secondly, recent advances in image segmentation will be placed in the core engine of the workflow. - Model performance metrics: The aim is to reach a compromise between the training time and the detector performance. The process will be applied to nanometer-sized features formed under irradiation in nuclear oriented materials (Co-free high entropy alloys (HEA), UO2, storage materials) and precipitates in materials with a technological interest (coherent Cr precipitates in Cu or SiC precipitates in Al).

    Requirements

    Applicants must hold a Ph.D. degree in Solid State Physics, Materials Science or in a closely related area. Previous experience in Python or Fortran programming or usage of ML/DL protocols will be appreciated.
