  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) - Department of Physics
    Trondheim, Norway
    Postdoc within experimental physics / materials technology
    Announcement date: 26 June 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The Department of Physics has a vacancy for a postdoc position with the title " Advanced electron microscopy characterization to understand interphase physics in metal additive manufacturing of multi-material products" within experimental physics and materials technology. The postdoc position will be part of an ongoing cross-disciplinary center for research based innovations (SFI) for competitive high value manufacturing in Norway, SFI Manufacturing. The topic of the position is "Advanced electron microscopy characterization to understand interphase physics in metal additive manufacturing of multi-material products" and is devoted to materials characterization at the nano- and microscale. Additive manufacturing (AM) of metallic materials is a rapidly growing field with many application areas, relevant for a range of industrial applications in Norway as well as internationally. Some complex applications need multi-material solutions, however, most of the AM machines have been developed for single material production. There are therefore several issues and challenges, such as flaking behavior, residual stress, AM process parameters and build strategy effects, thermal history and part deflections, that need to be handled in multi-material AM. The transmission electron microscopy activity at NTNU is centered around the TEM Gemini Centre and the national infrastructure NORTEM. Our research extends through various fields of solid state physics and materials technology, from cooperation with industry on aluminum, to third generation solar cells and novel nanomaterials.Currently, the Department has three TEM instruments including a double-corrected coldFEG JEOL ARM with plans of extending the infrastructure in the coming years.

    Application deadline 15. Aug. 2019

    Requirements

    The following qualifications will be desired: * A Ph.D. degree in a relevant subject (physics, chemistry, material science..), with experience in TEM  and TEM related techniques. * At least 3 years of hands-on experience with electron microscopy, and TEM in particular. * Experience with relevant sample preparation techniques for electron microscopy, such as focused ion beam (FIB) and conventional TEM specimen preparation routines * Knowledge and practical experience with relevant data handling, image analysis and basic programming (f.ex. Python, scripting in Digital Micrograph, Matlab etc) * Hands-on experience with aberration corrected (S)TEM, HAADF-STEM, EDX and EELS. * Experience with metals and alloys.
