The National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center on Organic Composite Materials for Structured Organic Composites for Pharmaceutical, Nutraceutical, and Agrochemical Applications (C-SOC) has an opening for postdoctoral associate.


C-SOC is a multi-university research center headquartered at Rutgers University with Purdue University, New Jersey Institute of Technology and the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez as core partners. The center's research mission is to develop a scientific foundation for optimal design of structured organic composites and develop science; and engineer methods for designing, scaling, optimizing and controlling relevant manufacturing processes.


We seek highly motivated individuals with a solid scientific background in the following area of process control and optimization.


Successful candidates should be able work independently, have excellent communication skills and able to work in collaborative projects. These abilities should be clearly demonstrated in the applicant's CV. The research activities are a hybrid of fundamental, academic research and applied, industrial investigations with strong support from federal, state and industrial sources.
