Postdoctoral Fellow
Job Description: 


Two postdoctoral research associate positions are available within the Scalable Thermal Energy Engineering Laboratory (STEEL) at the Georgia Institute of Technology under the direction of Prof. Shannon Yee in the G.W.W. School of Mechanical Engineering.  The research is centered on developing specialized thermal metrology techniques at both the macroscopic and micro/nano-scale to characterize heat transfer in specialized material systems.  This work will be highly collaborative across many universities and research groups where a strong background in physics and thermal science is necessary for success.  These two postdoctoral research associates will work in a team along with a graduate student for a two-year duration on a high-risk, cutting-edge, industry sponsored project.  One primary goal of this research from the sponsor is numerous high quality publications; therefore the ability to independently author high quality scientific manuscripts is required. 

Responsibilities also include independently carrying out collaborative research, presentations and reports, and interacting with and traveling to sponsors and collaborators frequently.  Highly motivated and hardworking candidates with a strong background in heat transfer are strongly encouraged to apply immediately. 

 Application Procedure: Please send a CV, representative publications, a short one-paragraph description of career goals, as well as contact information for three references to Shannon Yee (  Review of applications will start immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.  Anticipated start-date January 2016.
