Research scientist position at UTC

Research Scientist – Hybrid Polymer Composites
Job Summary
UTC is seeking a Research Scientist in the field of novel polymers and composites. The candidate will conduct basic and applied research to develop and synthesize novel polymers and inorganic nanoparticles for Air Force applications. The candidate should have extensive experience in polymer or hybrid material formulation, as evidenced by research publications in peer-reviewed journals and professional society conference presentations. The candidate will work as part of an interdisciplinary research team in the Composites Branch within the Materials and Manufacturing Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. The candidate is expected to collaborate with the multidisciplinary team to publish peer-reviewed scientific articles and aid in the development of technologies for U.S. national security interests.
The candidate must have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in traditional and state-of-the-art techniques for the synthesis, reaction optimization, and characterization of polymers and nanocomposites. Valuable experience also includes nanoparticles surface functionalization, characterization using electron and scanning probe microscopes, investigating corresponding electrical and optical properties; studying dynamics, and establishing techniques to develop structure-property relationships. Techniques include bulk and surface spectroscopy, nanoscale chemical / thermal / plasmonics/ mechanical mapping, atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy, in-situ testing, and multi-scale modeling.
The position is well suited to a graduating Ph.D. looking for a post-doctoral position. This opportunity has the potential for longer-term employment.
Job Responsibilities
• Develop and synthesize novel polymeric / inorganic materials and composites
• Investigate processing-structure-property relationships of candidate material systems
• Perform related analytical, computational, and/or experimental research tasks
• Summarize research findings in technical reports, manuscripts, and presentations
• U.S. citizenship
• Ph.D. (or to be completed in the next 6 months) in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, or related fields
• Research in the synthesis, reaction optimization, and characterization of polymers
• Willingness to expand scientific knowledge base through interdisciplinary research
• Good communication skills, both written and verbal, and team-oriented approach
