An undergraduate summer intern position in available within the NMR facility at Sandia (Albuquerque, NM) for the 2019 summer. This position will primarily involve the use of state-of-the-art NMR spectroscopy techniques for characterization of materials and chemical processes, with special emphasis on energy related materials. The student will be involved in the operation of the NMR instrument and subsequent data analysis. Students presently pursuing a degree in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, mathematics or biochemistry are encouraged to apply. The ability to obtain a security clearance is also required. The student should also have basic laboratory experience, excellent communication and writing skills, and enthusiasm for research.   

Interested students should contact Dr. Todd M. Alam, tmalam@sandia.gov. Applications being accepted starting in February 2019. Students should also apply directly to https://www.sandia.gov/careers/students_postdocs/index.html  Job ID # 66594



A postdoctoral position will be available in the Organic Materials Science department and NMR facility at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) in Albuquerque, NM. We are presently seeking highly motivated individuals to pursue research utilizing NMR spectroscopy in a national lab setting.

The postdoctoral position involves the use of solid state NMR and NMR diffusometry techniques to look at a variety of materials related issues. Candidate can become involved in a series of collaborative projects ranging from: 1) development of novel MAS NMR techniques to structure and dynamics in materials, 2) PFG NMR studies of transport in materials, 3) self-assembly phenomena, 4) NMR analysis of chemistry directed towards homeland security issues. Experience in either high resolution or solid state NMR spectroscopy as applied to materials science is desired.  

The laboratory is well equipped for both solution and solid state NMR investigations. The position requires a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, material science or closely related field. Excellent communication skills are required. Salary is industry-based, highly competitive and is for a 1-year position, with the possibility of extension. Interested parties should send a current CV to Dr. Todd M. Alam, tmalam@sandia.gov referencing. The ability to obtain a clearance security will be required.
