Available postdoc positions within the Gu Group at Stanford Mechanical Engineering:
- Nanostructured metallic glasses – Colloidal synthesis of metallic glass nanoparticles. Fabrication of nanostructured metallic glasses from nanoparticles. Characterization of mechanical, structural and thermodynamic properties using nanoindentation, micropillar testing, transmission electron microscopy and calorimetry. Analysis of deformation mechanisms and structure-property relationships within metallic glasses.
- High pressure deformation of nanostructured metals and nanomaterials – Diamond anvil cell studies and in-situ XRD and optical spectroscopy to understand elasticity, plasticity and phase transformations at high pressures. Materials of interest include lightweight alloys, transition metal oxides, and metallic nanoparticles. Transmission electron microscopy, materials characterization, synthesis and fabrication skills are encouraged.
Interested candidates should email Wendy Gu, firstname.lastname@example.org, with their CV, and a description of how they can contribute to one of the projects listed above. In addition, please discuss your expected start date (September is preferred), desired length of postdoc, and plans for after the postdoc position.
