Research Scientist and Post-doctoral Research Associates Job Openings
Atlanta (March 9, 2010) — Georgia Institute of Technology will have multiple openings for research scientists and post-doctoral fellow positions beginning July 2010. These positions require a Ph.D. in a science or engineering field. Successful candidates will work in polymer/carbon nanotube dispersion, fiber processing, stabilization, carbonization, as well as chemical, mechanical, and morphological characterization with the objective of making a carbon fiber with significantly higher mechanical properties than the state-of-the-art carbon fiber. Please send inquiries and applications to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the U.S.
