Postdoctoral Position in Thermoelectric Properties of Polymers -
Research in the field of nanoscale studies of thermoelectric phenomena in electroactive polymers is available in the group of Prof. A. Gruverman, University of Nebraska, Lincoln (http://physics.unl.edu/~agruverman/index.shtml). Research will be focused on the pyroelectric, thermoelectric and photovoltaic properties of a variety of technologically polymer materials, including ferroelectric, by scanning probe microscopy (SPM). Research will also involve fabrication of polymer nanostructures and modeling of their thermoelectric and photovoltaic behavior. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual with good communication skills. Interested applicants should send a copy of CV, cover letter and a list of at least two references to Prof. A. Gruverman (Email: alexei_gruverman@unl.edu Tel: +1-402-472-4788).

Graduate / Undergraduate Student Positions

Static and Dynamic Properties of Ultrathin Multiferroic Structures at the Nanoscale and Thermoelectric Properties of Electroactive Polymers - If you are interested in cutting-edge research in the physics of oxide materials and electroactive polymers and would like to pursue studies aimed at understanding the nanoscale ferroelectric and thermoelectric phenomena, a ferroelectric group at the Department of Physics and Astronomy has two graduate student positions. We are searching for enthusiastic candidates with interest in controlling and characterizing condensed matter materials at the nanoscale level using advanced scanning probe microscopy (SPM) techniques. The students will have access to state-of-the-art SPM equipment, collaborate with internationally recognized researchers, and develop contacts with the national research community. If you want a career in this hottest area of condensed matter science and nanotechnology, our group is for you! Graduate student candidates with background in physics, chemistry, materials science, bioengineering, mechanical engineering are encouraged to apply. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Prof. A.Gruverman (Email: alexei_gruverman@unl.edu; Tel: +1-402-472-4788).
