USC Postdoctoral Positions
Job Description: The Department of Chemistry at the University of Southern California is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral research fellows in the area of inorganic chemistry and catalysis, one with an emphasis on reaction and process design and the other in the area of structural chemistry and X-ray crystallography. One position will be based in the Travis Williams lab, focused on process development and homogeneous catalysis in the hydrogen on demand space. The other will be the interim director of our chemistry X-ray crystallography facility (in part) and have a research portfolio in inorganic chemistry and catalysis in the other part.
The postdoctoral fellows will work in a high energy, diverse research environment and advise on projects impacting many areas of catalysis, including organometallic chemistry, organic synthesis, polymer recycling and sustainability, and materials science.
Qualifications:The applicants must have received, or be scheduled to receive, a Ph.D. in chemistry, or a related field by the start of the appointment. A strong record of research productivity is required. Experience in synthetic chemistry is required for both positions, and a track record in crystallography is required for the X-ray position.
How to apply:Interested applicants or inquiries about the positions go to Prof. Travis Williams, email@example.com. Applicants should send a CV and a description of past research experience and future research interests. Following an initial screening of these application materials, appropriate candidates will be contacted for follow-up. Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
