The successful applicant will be responsible for operation, training, technical support, and maintenance of the Helios FIB and SEM within the MCP. Secondary responsibility would be to support the TEM Manager with equipment maintenance and training of users of the Tecnai TF30. Specific required FIB experiences are: 1) TEM sample preparation, 2) 3D EDX and EBSD data acquisition and processing, and 3) cryo-FIB applications. Specific SEM experiences are: 1) low voltage and low vacuum imaging, and 2) quantitative EDX analysis.
JHU engages in a wide variety of research activities ranging from functional materials to biology, from Earth materials to mechanical properties testing. You will be expected to develop appropriate uses of electron microbeam instruments to serve JHU's diverse research needs.
JHU offers the opportunity to work in a top-ten university without the high-volume pressures of larger institutions. The MCP will be moving to a newly renovated space where you will have an opportunity to shape the future of analytical facilities at Hopkins.
A PhD in Materials Science, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a related field is required.
Applications should be submitted electronically through Interfolio by Friday, January 25, 2019 to receive full consideration, however the position will be posted until filled. They should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, plus a list of three references.

After more than 130 years, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research. Faculty members and their research colleagues at the university's Applied Physics Laboratory have each year since 1979 won Johns Hopkins more federal research and development funding than any other university. The university has nine academic divisions and campuses throughout the Baltimore-Washington area. The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the School of Education and the Carey Business School are based at the Homewood campus in northern Baltimore. The schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Nursing share a campus in east Baltimore with The Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Peabody Institute, a leading professional school of music, is located on Mount Vernon Place in downtown Bal...timore. The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies is located in Washington's Dupont Circle area.
