Postdoc Opps

Postdoctoral positions exist in several areas including:

  • Chemistry and physics relevant to fire suppression, both experimental and modeling.
  • Optical diagnostics in Combustion processes including aerosol diagnostics (both droplets and particles) and related chemistry.
  • Gas phase chemical processes relevant to suppression including kinetics and mechanistic studies.
  • Modeling studies including combustion processes, fluid flows, and droplets.

Facilities include:

  • Several laser and/or laser systems including excimer, Nd:YAG, dye, ion lasers
  • IR spectrometers
  • Mass spectrometers
  • Atmospheric and low-pressure combustion facilities
  • Counter-flow diffusion burners
  • High-temperature reactors for gas phase kinetic studies
  • Computer based data acquisition systems
  • SGI workstations including dual processor ONYX

The postdoctoral program at the Naval Research Laboratory is restricted to U.S. citizens. Initial appointments are for one year and are routinely renewable for a second year.

The applicant is responsible for selecting a research project and writing a research proposal in collaboration with a prospective advisor. The fellowship is administered through the National Research Council. Deadlines for application material are January 15 for the February review and April 15 for the June review.
