    Two PhD positions in the area of “High Definition Electron Microscopy: Greater clarity via multidimensionality” (HDEM)
    Announcement date: 30 April 2019 - Deadline for application: 30 July 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The EMAT research group at the Faculty of Science (University of Antwerp) is seeking to fill two PhD positions in the area of “High Definition Electron Microscopy: Greater clarity via multidimensionality” under the supervision of Prof. Timothy Pennycook. These vacancies are situated in the H2020 ERC Starting grant High Definition Electron Microscopy: Greater clarity via multidimensionality (HDEM). The overarching goal of the HDEM project is to maximize the amount of information retrieved per unit dose via multidimensional data acquisition and analysis techniques such as 4D STEM and optical sectioning. Phase contrast imaging in HRTEM is currently the mode of choice for imaging the most beam sensitive specimens due to its high dose efficiency. Advances in camera efficiency and averaging methods such as single particle analysis have led to a so called resolution revolution in structural biology and the awarding of the 2017 Nobel prize in chemistry for cryo-EM. However we have recently shown via image simulations that electron ptychography can significantly outperform the dose efficiency of HRTEM, offering the prospect of extending the capabilities of cryo-EM yet further. To realize the potential of ptychography for low dose imaging experimentally we will utilize the latest in high speed cameras to record the required 4D STEM datasets. We will combine our enhanced imaging capabilities with single particle analysis for imaging biomolecules at ultra low doses. Similar techniques will be used for fragile materials science samples, for instance metal organic framework, Li ion battery, 2D, catalyst and perovskite solar cell materials. In addition to ultralow dose we aim to investigate high precision applications including imaging local electromagnetic fields such as those due to charge transfer, and testing the limits of imaging directly in 3D with optical sectioning in combination with spectroscopic imaging.

    Requirements

    - The PhD candidates hold a master degree with background in e.g. physics, mathematics, materials science, transmission electron microscopy. - You are enthusiastic and greatly interested in the quantitative analysis of electron microscopy data. - You can submit outstanding academic results. - You are highly motivated, quality-oriented, conscientious, creative and cooperative.

  • University of Antwerp - Electron microscopy for materials science (EMAT)
    Antwerp, Belgium
    Postdoctoral position in the area of the study of the crystallization of organic molecules using transmission electron microscopy under the supervision of Prof Sandra Van Aert and Prof Sara Bals
    Announcement date: 30 April 2019 - Deadline for application: 30 July 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The main goal of the project is to develop and apply transmission electron microscopy techniques to investigate the crystallization of organic molecules. The occurrence of two or more crystal structures for a given molecule, a phenomenon which is called polymorphism, is ubiquitous to various classes of synthetic and natural compounds. Examples of polymorphism are known in numerous application fields, such as food, explosives, pigments, semiconductors, fertilizers, and pharmaceutical drugs. Different crystal structures, so-called polymorphs, of the same compound exhibit sometimes very different physical properties, chemical reactivity, and biological functions. For instance, the polymorphs might differ in solubility ruining the pharmaceutical effect of one or more of the polymorphs. Understanding and controlling polymorphism is therefore very important. Simple questions, such as "How many polymorphs has a given compound?" or "What drives polymorph selection?", remain unanswered yet. In this scientific context, scientists have started to explore the occurrence of substrate-induced polymorphism, i.e. the formation of polymorphs that exist only in the vicinity of solid substrates. In particular, this project has the ambition to elucidate how positional and orientational order of molecules propagate from the substrate to the upper crystal layers. In this manner, the project will gain a fundamental understanding of polymorphism at the interface with solid substrates.

    Requirements

    - You hold a PhD degree with a background in e.g. physics, materials science or transmission electron microscopy; - You are enthusiastic and greatly interested in the quantitative analysis of electron microscopy data; - You can submit outstanding academic results; - You are highly motivated, quality-oriented, conscientious, creative and cooperative.

  • University of Antwerp - Electron microscopy for materials science (EMAT)
    Antwerp, Belgium
    Postdoctoral position in the area of “3D Structure Characterization of Nanomaterials under Realistic Conditions” under the supervision of Prof Sara Bals
    Announcement date: 30 April 2019 - Deadline for application: 30 July 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The vacancy is situated in an H2020 ERC Consolidator grant 3D Structure of Nanomaterials under Realistic Conditions (REALNANO). The overarching goal of REALNANO is to establish the structure-property connection of nanomaterials under realistic conditions. Tracking 3D changes of nanomaterials and their surface ligands in a thermal and gaseous environment is therefore required. We will develop innovative and quantitative 3D characterisation tools, compatible with the fast changes of nanomaterials that occur in a realistic thermal and gaseous environment. To visualise surface ligands, we will combine direct electron detection with novel exit wave reconstruction techniques.

    Requirements

    - You hold a PhD degree with a background in e.g. physics, computing science, mathematics or tomography; - You are enthusiastic and greatly interested in the field of electron microscopy data; - You can submit outstanding academic results; - You are highly motivated, quality-oriented, conscientious, creative and cooperative.
