Job Posting: Senior Postdoctoral Fellow in the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy

The Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy (CCEM) is a national facility located at McMaster University, in Hamilton, ON, Canada. The CCEM operates four  TEMs, including two FEI Titan TEMs, equipped with image and probe correctors and monochromators, as well as a Quantum GIF equipped with K2 direct electron detector for spectroscopy.

We are seeking a skilled and motivated researcher to perform a variety of imaging and analysis experiments supporting the needs of academic and industrial users, including consulting, planning of experiments, data processing and interpretation. An important role of this position is the training of users on the instruments.

Candidates should have a PhD in Physics, Material Science/Engineering, Chemistry or a related field with demonstrated hands-on experience using  transmission electron microscopes and EDS/EELS, preferably Titan TEMs. Strong communication skills and the ability to develop successful data acquisition and processing strategies will be essential in this role. Experience in data processing and scripting in Python or Matlab, as well as a demonstrated track record of research and interactions with users would be an asset.
