Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at Johns Hopkins University, with a designated visiting scholar position at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM). The position will focus on in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experiments and machine learning. Experiments will be performed under various combinations of extreme environments utilizing facilities at both the Johns Hopkins University Materials Characterization and Processing Center and the in-situ ion irradiation TEM (I3TEM) facility at Sandia National Laboratories (Albuquerque, NM). This work will involve in-situ ion irradiation coupled with other in-situ stimuli, such as mechanical strain, heating, and various environments and machine learning techniques.
The successful applicant will be part of a dynamic, multi-university team which includes both theoretical and experimental personnel. The focus of the applicant will be to investigate and characterize radiation damage processes in metallic materials, including pure metals and high entropy alloys.
Ideal candidates will have experience with in-situ and high resolution TEM, sample fabrication including focused-ion beam (FIB) lift-out methods, and defect and microstructural analysis of metallic systems
A Ph.D. in materials science, physics, mechanical engineering, or related disciplines is required.
Experience with in situ TEM imaging and diffraction of metallic materials.
Knowledge of crystalline defects and microstructure.
Experience image processing and image techniques.
Experience in scripting/programming (Python, Matlab, C++) for data processing.
Must be comfortable to travel to Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM 87123
Knowledge of aberration corrected high resolution TEM.
Experience with machine learning techniques.
Ability to disseminate research findings through peer-reviewed articles and presentations.
Knowledge of precession electron diffraction and/or electron backscattered diffraction.

About Johns Hopkins University
Johns Hopkins University remains committed to its founding principle, that education for all students should be grounded in exploration and discovery. Hopkins students are challenged not just to learn but also to advance learning itself. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and entrepreneurship are all encouraged and nourished in this unique educational environment. After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
