Organic Synthesis

Postdoctoral scholar positions are immediately available in the Functional Nanomaterials Lab led by Dr. Jennifer Lu to perform synthesis and characterization of small molecule model systems and corresponding polymers. The goal is to create a novel thermal contracting polymer platform [e.g., Nature Chemistry, 5, 1035, 2013; Macromolecules, 51(4), 1377-1385, 2018]. Successful outcomes will enable technological exploration in soft robotics, thermal waste harvesting and create zero expansion electronic packaging materials.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry or polymer chemistry or a related field with demonstrated experience in organic and polymer synthesis. Knowledge in spectroscopic characterization as well as thermal analysis is beneficial to the project.

Applicants are required to submit curriculum vitae and a list of three references with contact information including phone number and e-mail address using the Recruit system. Please apply through https://aprecruit.ucmerced.edu/JPF00848. For additional imformation, Please contact Jennifer Lu at jlu5@ucmerced.edu.

Thank you so much.
