Postdoctoral Research  Positions

Moridi lab is looking for high profile candidates to nominate for postdoctoral fellowship at Cornell in one of the following areas:

1. Nano scale imaging + Additive manufacturing

The candidate should have a strong track record in nanoscale science. The proposal should be one page and have a major component developing or utilizing next generation tools for imaging/control at the nanoscale to address challenges in metal additive manufacturing. Please visit the tools that are available at Cornell here:


2. Synchrotron + Metallurgy

The candidate should have a strong track record in doing synchrotron experiments especially on metallic materials. The proposal should be one page and describe how synchrotron experiments can be used to gain a deeper understanding of additively manufactured metallic materials. Please refere to beamline capabilities at CHESS here

PhD award date: 9/1/2021 or later


3. Additive Manufacturing

The candidate should have a strong track record in materials science, metallurgy and additive manufacturing. The proposal should be one page and describe a research to address one of the major challenges in metal additive manufacturing or propose design of new alloys for metal additive manufacturing.

PhD award date: 9/1/2021 or later
