NON-INSTRUCTIONAL

Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Senior Research Associate. This position is a direct report to the technology and facilities manager of the MSE Department at Virginia Tech. It encompasses the management and operation of the electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, and related sample preparation and support facilities which are located in the Instrumentation Cost Reimbursement Center of the department. It also involves the training and supervision of student and faculty users of this sophisticated research equipment, and the collaboration with faculty in the teaching of laboratory courses in MSE which use these facilities. In addition, other responsibilities of this position involve the direct interaction with research groups in other departments and research centers in the university, as well as with Virginia industry. We are seeking in particular candidates with a doctoral degree in materials science and engineering, or a closely related discipline, with a supporting undergraduate degree in physical science or engineering. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills, experience in managing sophisticated research instrumentation facilities, and familiarity with the training and supervision of students, both undergraduate and graduate. Experience in laboratory instruction in materials science and engineering will be considered as an additional attractive qualification for the successful candidate. Candidates should have extensive knowledge and experience with engineered materials, a basic understanding of their microstructure/property relationships, and an ability to correlate these features with materials processing techniques. Candidates should also have demonstrated proficiency and expertise with computer programming, data acquisition, and computer interfacing with related instrumentation. Primary duties for this position include: 1) Supervision, in collaboration with the faculty, of research and development projects which utilize the instrumentation facilities on the synthesis, processing, fabrication, and characterization of metals, ceramics, and polymers. 2) Provision of skilled analysis and interpretation of data collected with the research instrumentation. 3) Develop and maintain, in collaboration with MSE's technology manager, cooperative interactions with other research groups on campus, as well as with companies and research groups throughout the state and beyond. 4) Preparation of written reports to companies and research groups on materials characterizations and analyses which have been performed. 5) Provision, on a timely basis each month, to MSE's fiscal officer an account of all users, user accounts, and equipment usage. 6) Maintenance and operation of microanalytical instrumentation, e.g., scanning-transmission (STEM), environmental-scanning (ESEM), and high-resolution transmission (HRTEM) electron microscopes, x-ray diffractometers, x-ray residual-stress diffractometer, scanning acoustic microscope (SAM), jet polisher, ion miller, ultra/cryo microtomy, and affiliated photographic facilities. 7) Training of all undergraduate and graduate students and faculty members who will be using the research instrumentation and provide them with continued guidance and support of their research efforts. The MSE Department seeks to fill the position in the spring of 1997. To assure complete consideration, applications will not be accepted after April 15. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience. Please send letter of application, current resume, and names of three references who can be contacted to Dr. Carlos T.A. Suchicital, Search Committee Chair, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, 213 Holden Hall, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0237.
