Post doc Position – Nanomechanical Characterization,

Advanced Sensing and Analytics



ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow at its Corporate Strategic Research laboratory, located in Clinton, NJ, 50 miles from New York City in scenic western New Jersey.


Candidates are sought to fill a research position in the area of nanomechanical characterization with scanning probe microscopy (SPM) based methods.  The candidate will conduct research with state of the art SPM instrumentation (including nanoindentation) to develop novel methods in quantitative and semi-quantitative characterization of elastic and viscoelastic materials. The position is primarily experimental-based but will also include simulations of tip-sample interactions and incorporate use of contact mechanics modeling to improve data interpretation. 


A Ph.D. in materials science/applied physics/physical chemistry/materials or mechanical engineering and a demonstrated ability to perform independent research is required.   A strong background in scanning probe microscopy with a proven track record in research is essential.  Experience in advanced scanning probe methods and theory including multifrequency, dynamic methods, nanoindentation, advanced image analysis, nano-thermal analysis methods, tip-sample interaction simulations and contact mechanics is strongly desired.  Excellent collaboration and communication skills are required.


ExxonMobil offers a competitive compensation and benefits package and a broad range of opportunities.


Please submit your application letter and resume to our website at and apply for the Post Doc – Nanomechanical Characterization  position.
