Department of Chemistry



Post Doc Position - University of Delaware

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Prof. Thomas Epps' group in the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department at the University of Delaware (UD), with a focus on the synthesis of ion-conducting polymers for flow battery membrane applications.  This project is a collaborative effort between UD and the University of Florida (UF), and also involves The Chemours Company.  This effort is part of the UD Center for Research in Soft matter and Polymers (CRiSP).  The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to conduct monomer and polymer synthesis at UD and UF, and will have the opportunity to characterize the thermal, mechanical, and ion-transport properties of polymer membranes in concert with scientists at Chemours.  Interested candidates should have a background or keen interest in polymer synthesis, along with a desire to study structure-property relationships in self-assembling polymer systems.  The position has a term of one to three years. If interested, please email with a CV, along with the names of two potential references.
